Sore heel

I've had a sore heel for a couple of months now. It flares up every time I go skating, to the point where I can't walk - like right now. At first I thought it was bruised, so I waited for it to go away, but it didn't. So I went to the doctors and they told me it is a thing called plantar fasciitis, or jogger's heel. The treatment is to massage it a lot and take it easy, which I did for a couple of weeks and thought was working, so I went skating today, and now I can't walk.
Jesus, it hurts. It feels like it's broken, but the doctor was pretty sure it's this plantar fascist thing. It will start feeling better again tomorrow, then it will gradually fade away until I'll think it will be fine to go skating again next weekend. But I wanted to put this up so I'll remember not to skate again, not until I get this sorted out. Bastard.
Here's a clip we filmed yesterday with Sam, Tom, me, French and Alex in it.



It's not as if I bang my heel or anything; it just gets sore from rolling around, probably from the action of pushing. This is especially shit because it means I shouldn't even just go out and film, because that will be just as bad. I realise this is boring.
