One of the biggest lessons I learned this summer was to take care of my feet. I was careless, and wound up with very severe fungal infection all over both feet that forced me to take a month off from the pool. I was on six prescriptions at one point, with cleaning, medication, and clean socks, multiple times a day. I always thought serious athletes were silly when it comes to how obsessive their foot care is. I don’t take this stuff lightly any more. Never again!
