Improvise and Overcome

Sunday, June 10, 2012

So as I mentioned in my last blog, I'm having some pretty severe Plantar Fasciatis issues. And so really all I've been doing since the half marathon is Yoga twice a week. Well that has led to feeling like a real slug. When I'm used to working out 5 days a week and then all of a sudden I'm down to 2. Yeah not the way to go.

So this morning as every morning I needed to make my daily pilgrimage to Starbucks. Usually it's by car since I go on my way to work (to survive the 30 mile commute). emoticon

But since it's the weekend... I rode my daughter's bike. Whew that was quite the workout. First it's a cruiser with no gears, secondly other than a stationary bike in the gym it's the first bike ride I've done in probably 8+ years. But it was nice to get out, enjoy the sunshine, feel the breeze and get some exercise!

I just gotta keep switching things up until my foot heals instead of sitting around on my butt. These pounds aren't gonna just fall off by themselves.

    Oh man, a bike ride! What a great way to stay active and ease up on your foot! Big kudos for you for sticking with it and not just caving into the lazy because of your pain. Woo hoo!

    Go to a podiarist and get some custom made inserts for your shoes, and if that does not help a lot, have the dr give you shots in the feet. I had the same issue, and between the shots and the inserts, my feet are pain free. Have a great day and I hope your feet start feeling better.
