. . .I need a shoulder


Tuesday, June 17, 2014

,and a virtual hug or two.

It's my foot again. Yep. I actually cried today - and I am not a person given to tears. I just want this foot to heal. (guess I need more patience)
It is beginning to hurt a bit...on a pain scale of 1-10, it's just a 3 or 4. Still, I wish my foot were better. I LONG so much (I cannot begin to express) for a run. .. or a jog. This break from any pounding on my feet is painful emotionally.
I just needed to write this blog....always feels better afterwards. emoticon
Thanks for bearing with me.





Mid-spring, I took a REST from any foot pounding fitness (which was 90% of all my routines at the time), and began to use the foam roller and ice on my foot, and just rest more.... Then - we moved & REST left in a hurry. LOL!
I have been on my feet more than EVER before emoticon ...::::I have been in the DIY construction b'ness for 31 days now.....at least 12 hours each day doing pretty rough work. I DO know how to float walls, texture them, paint, tile, create flagstone walkways, sand/prime/paint cabinets, and stay sane the entire time. emoticon emoticon

Hence, my upper body is quite fit and SORE! emoticon ...:::but my lower body and my heart misses the cardio, the JOY of an elevated heart rate with the all the rewards that fitness brings.

emoticon So, with being on my feet more than ever before and pushing myself 31 consecutive days - this could very well be WHY my foot is beginning to hurt. For Pete's sake - my hands feel like they are swollen and arthritic, my shoulders are killing me. Why shouldn't my feet hurt too? Lol....
It makes sense - add 31 days of construction work to my routine, and why shouldn't my body not pour out a complaint. emoticon don't mind me - ...I'm just rambling.





emoticon However, we are FINISHED now with our house improvements! emoticon That blog will be up and coming soon, I promise, with pictures too of the before & after (as requested). . .


God must have a plan with the timing, and the consequences of this injury.
I know He will heal the loss I feel, and fill the void with something in the meantime. He knows my desire to run. I leave my heart trusting in His Love and His Plan for me.





For now, I can continue floor exercises & Pilates.
If you have any suggestion for me, I would appreciate it. . . but if it is just listening, that is a blessing too. emoticon

    Hope your foot is better no. I do miss running outside, but have found a good alternative in golf. I am hooked and regret I only have time once a week.

Hope all goes well. Your new kitchen looks fab! I wish I had a big kitchen like that.

    emoticon I understand too well. I miss running too but am slowly getting back to it. It does get better with time and care. Have you tried wearing a brace at night? It did help me a lot with the early morning pain.

Of course, I'm now wearing orthotics every day when I'm not wearing my Orthaheel sandals! I resisted that step for a long time, but now that I've made the adjustment, it's not such a big deal to find shoes that work with them.

HIS plan is good, whatever it might be for you! More emoticon

    Swimming or biking shouldn't hurt. I'm still dealing with the plantar faciatis but it's some better. I have an appt. with a podiatrist a week from Friday. Frustrating! You've been doing a lot of hard work. Sounds like exercise to me!

    emoticon emoticon m emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Here are your hugs!! Hope that your foot heals quickly. But you must remember that you are working your upper body and believe it or not...that is cardio. Not what you are used to but cardio just the same! I would see a good foot doctor.

    Does Cycling aggravate your foot? It is a low impact exercise and you sure can get your cardio in and see some awesome scenery too. Praying for healing!!

    So sorry! I understand your frustration. Now that the DIY business is done, you can heel. I can't wait to see home improvement pictures.

I'm very impressed with your DIY abilities!

It's been a while since I have done it so I can't remember everything involved but have you checked out the seated cardio workout on Spark? Maybe that could hold you over for a little while.

Take good care of yourself.

    Been to see your doctor? Could be a stress fracture, just maybe.
Hope whatever it is it heals quickly.

I'm happy that you are doing other exercises. Don't worry. You will build up your endurance again & you will carefully regain lost ground. emoticon
