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!
