Hi Zumba Lovers!
Recently I've been experiencing more and more foot pain--after Zumba, and after work, and now, pretty much all the time!
I work as a pharmacist and am on my feet for 6-11 hours at a time (depending on the length of my shift) and I literally don't sit down once all day! I usually wear one of several pairs of comfortable sneakers or a pair of rubber-soled clogs that are made for people who stand all day.
I also do a lot of Zumba--about 6 hours a week on average. I wear Bloch or Sansha split-sole dance sneakers, which I've never had any problems with for the 2&1/2 years that I've been doing Zumba!
Yesterday at Zumba (after an 8 hr shift at work), I was feeling OK for the first 30 min or so--but then my feet (especially the heels!!) began to hurt so that I had to finish the workout very low-impact and wasn't enjoying myself at all.. (which is highly unusual!!!).
Any advice for heel pain??
Any wonderful shoes (for work or Zumba) that you swear by??
Any magic orthotic inserts you can buy for this??
I NEED some advice!! I need to practice my routines, because I will be subbing for one of our gym's most popular instructors in a few weeks--and I HAVE to be good!!
Any advice for learning routines without being hard on the feet??
Thank You to anyone who has any advice for me!!!!!
