Felt pretty good.

Saw a physical therapist today. I have inflammation of one of the support muscles in my left foot - probably causing the pronation of the left foot. I'm now wearing a moderate stability running shoe with an orthotic to keep the left ankle from rolling. And wearing a compression ankle wrap.

I'm still loyal to my five-fingers for daily wear... maybe I can strengthen my foot muscles with some additional rehab exercises.

Also adding running drills: knee ups, foot to butt, and prancing strides - leaping to toe. If I continue to have problems with a toe/mid-foot strike I'll add a jump rope!

MISHAMW 7/21/2012 4:07PM how much does pronation suck!!!??? Right right?!?!

I am glad you are able to find something that works for you. Good shoes aren't enough for me. But my knee is the one that suffers because of my overpronation.

Good luck, and I am hoping that you don't get injured!!! Those exercises do help!!!
