After yesterdays post, all I have to say is I wish I grew up with all of you ❤ You all are so supportive and kind-hearted. It really hurt to discover many of you have gone through similar experiences. On the bright side, it shaped us into who we are today- and we’re pretty fan-freaking-tastic 😉
Question for my fellow bloggers before I ramble about my feet: How do you read and follow blogs?
I used to only use wordpress to “follow” bloggers, and then I found Bloglovin and fell in love. So much easier for me.
Typical day at work. Had a kale salad with pine nuts for lunch. Super garlicky- so glad I didn’t have any afternoon meetings.
After work I went to see my foot surgeon. I’m not having surgery, he’s just a family friend and THE expert. By expert I mean he didn’t acquire his MD from WebMD like I did. I kid. He actually is one of the best in California.
Waiting room shenanigans. Like my super expensive new shoes and compression sleeves?
It was actually nice of them to give these to me for walking around to the different rooms. But I was walking around like a dog does when you put socks on them .
After some X-rays and foot touching, I found out nothing is wrong with my feet! YAY!
I discovered that I am in the wrong running shoe. I was always told to use a “supportive” shoe for my over-pronating.
This was fine until I got these special orthotics that correct this problem. Using a supportive shoe on top of that was over-correcting my feet. I need a neutral running shoe.
On top of this, he is ordering me new orthotics with more support and cushion in certain areas to stop the pain. I found out that I was supposed to contact him if I experienced any pain (like my ankle and ball of foot) while using the original orthotics so that I could get re-fit. Oops. Missed that memo. Better late than never.
I talked to my doc about minimalist shoes too. I am really interested in them because I’ve heard great things. Unfortunately I will not be trying them at this time. He said he would discourage it based on my particular foot anatomy haha.
So for now, hopefully if I get new shoes and use these new orthotics I will eliminate my problems. Foot related at least 😉
Yesterday was National Pancake Day too.
This was one of the first times I was actually aware of a National __ Day. I usually only catch the lame ones like National Vasaline Day. Or National Wear Your Favorite Socks Day.
So obviously I had to make pancakes for dinner 🙂
What type of running shoes do you use? Gimme yo suggestions!
Did you celebrate National Pancake Day?
