My trainer and I talked this morning about how we find ways to get keep ourselves motivated and focused. It's tough, especially working back from an injury.
Super Jock & Jill has physical therapists and sports medicine specialists in their store every Thursday evening. Tonight my feet were examined closely, as were my orthodics, by a professional. The Saucony shoes got swapped for Nike men's shoes that have less support but one important distinction: there is no rubbing, no pressure, nothing but fabric over and near the bunion. I probably do need stronger orthodics than I have right now.
I can start to walk again more than a mile at a time with some confidence that I won't get worse rather than better.
