First we'll talk about my victory. I went for a walk this morning (no, that's not the victory!). About halfway through the walk, I have to cross a big street. There's no light there, so I pretty much have to cross at an opportune moment between a break in traffic. This morning it was pretty busy, so I had to jog across the street.
And when I got across, I kept jogging.
I jogged for just one block, but that's one more than I jogged yesterday. And let me just say that I have *never* jogged in public before, outside of forced exercise in P.E. At first I was nervous/embarrassed about a few cars that were driving by, and then I was especially embarrassed when another (in shape) jogger crossed my path at the 1-block intersection.
But who cares.
Now, my immense pain... I bought some arch supports for my new shoes, in hopes that it would help my crampy/burning foot problem when walking. It did NOT. It was probably 3 times WORSE today than without the inserts. About 2/3 through the walk, I honestly didn't know if I could make it home because with every step, it felt like knives stabbing into my feet. Obviously I made it and kept going, but MAN, it was unbelivably painful.
Now, my question is, do you think this is just my feet in shock b/c they've never been supported like this before? Do you think they need to get used to the inserts, or is it just totally abnormal for me to be in such pain using these things?
