My foot hurts.

26 Feb

I can’t seem to get it right. I wore New Balance when I started working out (summer 2010) – fast forward to fall 2011 post 1/2 marathon = plantar fasciitis which I’ve dealt with off and on since then. In both feet. Now fast forward to Feb 2013 = hella pain on the ball of my foot started friday-ish. Did elliptical and yoga Sat instead of my long run (we shall see where this goes – 1/2 in April might not happen if I’m in pain) and rested yesterday. Bootcamp today and of course we did a lot of jumping. I tried to stay on one foot (if I stop or try to call the class no one works as hard. it’s odd but evidently a thing that happens in group fitness classes. I think that’s what I would do in a class where the instructor was just walking around though) but that’s just not entirely possible so now it hurts like someone beat me with a hammer. Just in one spot – the ball of my foot. I ordered new shoes: Reebok Scream 2.0

$49 at! Based on reviews that I have read these shoes are good for cross training activities like we do in bootcamp as well as short distance running. I was wearing some New Balance cross trainers and I think that they just didn’t have enough support in the right places – despite my orthotics. I told you – feet problems!

So when the shoes get here (yes, I went to the $##&* store and they were super unhelpful/not knowledgeable and didn’t have the purple ones above (love purple!) and they were more expensive. Dude offered to order them but honestly I really just didn’t want to go back to the store), I’ll let you know what I think.

On to Tuesday: Focus on cardio and BUTT!

Circuit 1: 60/15
