I have plantar fasciitis and a heel spur. I spent the weekend standing over 9 hours each day, walking around and being very busy. Never again, my feet progressively got worse and this morning they are throbbing. I know what to do, rest, elevation, anti-imflamitories, stretching. I use the expensive orthotics all the time. It's basically an over use flareup.
But, this (an injury) is when I usually fall of the wagon so to speak when I lose weight. So I need to remember that I can still exercise everyday just not walking/running for a few weeks. And maybe be really careful what I'm eating since I'm not as active.
So, let's think about this. I can still swim-well, I swim like a rock but that's beside the point. the recombunant bike? sitting weight lifting? I have the "ultimate gym" -the knock off version of the total gym. But, I don't seem to get an aerobic workout when I do that.
Any ideas to keep me active while I'm off my feet this next week or more?
I am not going to let this be a major stubling block on my way to fitness it's just going to be a minor inconvience. I have to keep telling myself that, maybe I'll believe it
