New shoes

Friday, February 15, 2013

So today I went to the running store and had my walk videotaped and analyzed and my feet sized. I had very knowledgeable help..the owner of the store.

Thought/think I found a pair of shoes. Tonight when I started the workout my right foot felt great but the arch was bothering my left foot (weird I know). During my workout I, again, had a problem with my toes burning but the arch didn't bother me as much the longer I wore it. And after my workout my feet are hurting still/again.

So...I don't know if I just chose the wrong shoes or if I will have these problems until I lose more weight.

They have a 7 day inside wear only return policy so I'll try them a few more days but am disappointed. Guess I thought good shoes would take care of the toes and pain in my feet problems.

On the plus side I'm getting back to my workouts the way they were before I got sick. Tonight did over 3 miles in an hour and 5 minutes. I also tried the elliptical but only did 1 minute and my legs were jello! lol Before my mom died, over 10 years ago, I did 20-30 minutes on that my thighs were in much better shape at that time then I realized! Of course I also didn't walk an hour on the treadmill before doing it but don't think that is the problem. But I'm determined to beat that elliptical so am going to work at until I am much better.

3k walk is a week from Sunday!!! emoticon

    I really need new shoes too, but the only place with that kind of service around here charges $100 to analyze your walk ! emoticon Then another $100 at least for the shoes. I'm just not ready to shell out that kind of dough.

    I just got new shoes, too. It sounds like you got great customer service - I didn't even know those things were available. Shoes can take some time to break in, so I would give it another day or two. As for the elliptical, I can't last more than a minute either. My mom loves it (they have one at her physical therapy place and now she wishes she could afford to buy one and wishes she had the space in her apartment for one).

    You are doing great! I agree that a foot DR would be my next step to knowing exactly what is going on with your feet.

    Give the shoes a chance. It takes a while to break in shoes. You're just getting back to the elliptical and it does take awhile. When I first started on it I did two minutes at a time and worked my way up. Don't beat yourself up, just take your time.

    I find that if I do too much of an exercise before the elliptical, that it makes it harder for me to do it. A light warmup and I am ready to go on that thing lol.

    Its nice to have such a knowledgeable person wait on you for shoes, especially when you have feet issues. If the pain continues i'd think about seeing a foot doctor emoticon .
