Too foggy to ride outside 😦 So upper body weights and a half hour interval cycling session 🙂 So much sweat!
I didn’t update on the offending foot orthopedic appt: He was really quite wonderful and explained everything, answered every question….. and said it’s only a matter of time before he’ll have to surgically repair the foot
Anyone else have high arches and run long distance? He said the 2 don’t go together and all of various issues with it are the fault of pes cavus (high arches). High arches are great for sprinting and basketball, not marathons. Hmmm. He in no way suggested that I should not run again and his goal is for me to run again, which made me fall a little bit in love with him. Anyway we’re starting with custom orthotics (they’ll be ready tomorrow), more PT
(although I’m doing far better without), and an agreed slow return to running. If I’m still experiencing pain and unable to run in 3 months he’ll schedule surgery…. Making needed fixes on the offending foot and lowering the arch.
The amount of movement in my ankle joint is a bit sickening
