FRUSTRATING FOOT PROBLEM
Friday, August 12, 2011
I started off great getting back on track both with food plans and walking, but now since Sunday after a long 4 1/2 mile walk the top of my foot over the arch is very painful. I have held off walking for a few days hoping that would help but it hasn't. I am thinking that because of the warm weather I had been wearing very flat flip flops a lot and maybe the lack of arch support that has caused the pain. I have been wearing my walking shoes all day the past few days and it feels better when I am just walking around the house or the grocery store, but when I go out to walk at my fast walk pace the pain starts in again. Not quite sure what I should do now, give up walking completely for awhile as I am still doing a 20 to 30 minute walk a day. I live in a condo complex so don't get the exercise I used to doing all the yard work so walking is my main form of exercise. Boy it sucks getting old, lol.
