annnnnnnnnnd you have foot problems with that routine somehow.
Utter desperation ? stop field sports, for now. You are not quitting soccer
you are going on the DL, which means you are going to go back to it. eventually.
hence, stop doing the stuff that puts stress on the feets, swap
to easy spinning cycling which will work the feet but also give them
a big rest while you can get the heartrate up as far as you want
soccer will break the bones in your feet.
what do I know ? played soccer for years, busted my foot doing so,
have recovered from it basically the same way I posted...came back
to the field far stronger
truth is: you need to see an ortopedic surgeon and podiatrist
who don't say 'I dunno' and rather say 'Oh yeah we work with many
, and here is what we need to plan and execute....'
because you have been getting non-advice when you need a real plan
a real sports doctor is in the business of getting athletes back in action,
no saying 'I dunno'
