A small bump in the road

Friday, May 11, 2012

On Wednesday, I had scheduled a few cardio workouts using Sparkpeople videos and also some strength training to finish things off. As it turns out, I barely made it though Nicole's Jump Start Cardio 10 minute video, because my feet were hurting so bad.

It really pays to have good workout shoes, I know this. I knew better than to wear my old, semi-too tight sneakers. Everyone needs the proper shoes for whatever they plan on doing before they work out. So I injured my feet and was unable to even complete my Daily Challenge which was to lift one leg off the floor for an extended period of stretch and balance. What a bummer!

The good news is, I was able to find a hopefully good pair of crosstrainer shoes from the Nike outlet, that I will be trying out this weekend. I learned that crosstrainer shoes don't typically have much arch support. I had asked about it because I've been told and read many articles that say that people with flat feet (ME!) need much arch support. So, I may have to buy some inserts from a local drugstore.

I have also heard from a couple of friends about the shoes that have toes and barely any extra cushion. I've been told that I should try those, as wearing regular shoes over the years is what makes a person's feet so flat. I must say though, that I've always had flat feet, I inherited them from my mom. Thanks, mom! Haha so I don't know that I put much stock in those toe shoes.

How about you?
