    Hmmm. I just went back thru my log here and realized that my ankle started hurting one week after I stopped wearing shoes while lifting. I can't remember when I went to that park and jumped off the wall but I was thinking that it was a couple weeks before my ankle started hurting. Maybe the previous injury and the lack of support from no longer wearing shoes added up to injure my tendon. I think I will add this time line to what I tell my physio.

    That would make sense. Shoes will help spread the load. Could very well have caused it.

    My Physical Therapist said that it was OK to go back to the gym this week. She said to start light and listen to my foot. I will dial back to week 8 weights and see how it goes. She also wants me to wear shoes. The only shoes I have right now are my running shoes with the squishy heal. I will try to use them until I can get my lifting shoes. May be a couple weeks. She also said to ease into the running and start with just walking for a couple days. Yesterday would have been my cardio day but I didn't go to the gym after my therapy. Friday would be my next cardio day but I have therapy that day too. I will start the cardio next week.

    Also, Since I have been off for two weeks and I would have done week 12 the first week that I took off, I am calling this week 1 part 2. I will save my excel sheet and reset everything with my new starting weights. I still plan on doing 5x5 and adding 5/10 lbs as normal. I know I will hit failure pretty quick but I want to get back to where I was and then see how far I can go with the 5x5 before changing anything.

    If you don't want to spend the cash on lifting shoes, try some Converse. Chucks are nice & flat. Also way cheaper than lifting shoes.

    I was looking at Chucks. I found a cross fit type shoe that is about the same price, on sale. Not sure about the quality though, since I have never heard about the shoe.

    Here are the ones I found. [URL="http://www.vsathletics.com/product.php?xProd=2369&jssCart=9550397732466308ed6 84fa15440f6cb"]http://www.vsathletics.com/product.php?xProd=2369&jssCart=9550397732466308ed6 84fa15440f6cb[/URL]

    Not sure on those. Can you try them on before you buy? Hate to end up with crappy fitting shoes. May also want to look into New Balance's Minimus - [URL]http://www.newbalance.com/nb-minimus/[/URL] I'm going to pick up a pair of the zeros for running myself. Granted, they are $110. My current pair of Sauconys were just as much though. And I don't use them just for lifting so I can sorta justify it in my mind.

    I might go with the Chucks just because I can try them on. I have never seen the VS shoes anywhere. The sale price is thru their website, Amazon has them for twice that. I have even tried finding used, hate the thought of used athletic clothing but I think I could live with used shoes. Doesn't matter since I couldn't find any.

    I can justify the price easy enough, just can't afford it right now. I bought a new motorcycle last weekend and they wanted another $250 down that I didn't really have.

    4-3-12
    Part 2
    Week 1 day 1

    Squat-
    Warm ups - 45x5, 90x5, 135x5
    Working Sets - 185 4x5, 1x10
    These were a little tough after two weeks off. I am sure I am going to feel it in my quads tomorrow.

    OHP-
    Warm ups - 55x5, 80x5
    Working Sets - 110 5x5
    These didn't feel as shaky as they used to even with the shoes. A little struggle with the last couple reps of the last set but no failure.

    Dead Lift-
    Warm ups - 100x5, 155x5
    Working set - 205x10
    Felt solid. No issues with these.

    Squat-
    Warm ups - 45x5, 95x5, 140x5
    Working Sets - 190 4x5, 1x10
    Still sore from Tuesday.

    Bench-
    Warm ups - 55x5, 80x5
    Working Sets - 110 4x5, 130 1x10
    110 felt light so I added 20 to my last set and still did my 10.

    Row-
    Warm ups - 55x5, 80x5
    Working set - 110 4x5, 1x10
