View Full Version : Heel Injury from Flip Turn

July 23rd, 2009, 09:07 AM
Hello! Last night I smacked my heel on the pool deck/gutter while doing a flip turn drill. It is pretty painful to walk and the back of my heel has a bruise. You would think this would no longer happen after swimming for 20 years.

I am concerned about how long this will take to heal as I am competing in a sprint triathlon in about a week. I was planning on getting a few more running work outs in before I took it easy before the race.

Has anyone else had a similar injury and if so how long did it take to heal?
