Ouchy wow wow!

Monday, May 20, 2013

I've been having some issues with my right foot for about a week. It's been really sore & by the end of the day after 10000+ steps, it's pretty sore & swollen.

When we came home from out of town yesterday, we went to the Urgent Care place so I could get an x-ray & make sure there wasn't a stress fracture.

No stress fracture, but there is severe arthritis in that foot & it is aggravated & inflamed. Doc recommended that I cut out walking/jogging, etc. for about a week or so.

Alternate exercise plans:

Non-impact lower body

I don't have access to a pool or a stationary bike, so I'll have to figure out something else for cardio. I welcome your suggestions.

Am I upset about this setback? A little. But this gives me an opportunity to try something new.

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    I found my recumbent exercise bike on Craigslist for just $50. Wishing you relief.

    I am sorry about your pain - Arthur is the worst!
Coach Nicole has a seated barbell workout that will make you sweat. And I know there are other seated workouts - check them out!

    Like GOLFGMA said, there are some sitting cardio videos...the trouble is you still have to use your foot in some way, so you would have to be very careful.

Maybe just some shadow boxing from a chair?

Praying you'll be much improved by the time your week of rest is over.

    Oh! Sorry about the pain you're having in your foot!
I know it's hard to stop doing what you've always done, but you've got a GREAT attitude about trying something new! That's awesome!

    Sorry about your owie . . . . but you're on the right track! Focusing on your core is always a beneficial option.
Hope you can soak your foot in warm epson salts baths while you're letting it rest

Great attitude! You ROCK!

    O yuck! I'm so sorry to hear this. Cardio without weight on the foot? The only thing I can think of off the top of my head is bicycles: lay on the floor, legs up (90 hips and knees), and then pretend to ride. It really works the abs too.

    I have had to skip a few workouts lately due to eye surgeries. Two weeks without upper body strengths. I found some lower body exercises and seated workouts here on SP. Sure hope everything improves speedily for you! emoticon

  If you have access to a pool, I would highly recommend water running.

    Know what arthritis feels like and the pain can be debilitating. Hope you feel better soon. Did they give you a foot splint?
