That's exactly what
happened last week when I mentioned that I had worn a less than comfortable pair of dress shoes. I am assuming that you've all been there and that you could relate. I cleaned out my closet last week and promptly put those shoes in a bag to go to Good Will. I thought that pain was only going to last a few days, but it lingered on.
The pain continued into this past week as well. I didn't know whether I should be massaging it, icing it, popping Ibuprofen, or just resting it. I know the side effects of Ibuprofen and after my bout with ITBS last year I told myself I was going to lay off of it but I couldn't even get through the work day without it.
Speaking of feet, I wanted to take this time to mention that I got to try these foot coverings from Kushyfoot.
The white ones are low trainer socks and I like these because they have some type of grippy type gel on the back to keep them in place. I wouldn't wear them to run in but they are nice for every day use. The black foot coverings are lace and in addition to having the grippy on them, they also have padding for the bottom of the foot. I've never seen foot coverings that had this. I wore these with a pair of flats this week while I was having my foot pain and it felt nice.
I also received a pair of yoga socks. I like these because of the grippy on the bottom and the open toe design!
Even though I was dealing with the foot pain, I was still able to get in some great runs on Tuesday and Friday and stretches and exercises all the other days! On Friday, I woke up with a kink in my neck that I still have not been able to get rid of. I tried cracking it and massaging it with a tennis ball but nothing helps. Anyone have any advice? -M
We hope the weather is nice where you are and that you are having a Happy Easter Holiday!
