When I first got hitched, bought a home and had youngsters.
- Time and cash were in short supply.
I had to give up my gym membership plus figure out an alternative for keeping fit. The simple option was to run. All I needed was a pair of shoes plus I could accomplish a productive workout. I hastily became totally committed to running. I steadily increased my pace plus distance until I was running upwards of 10 miles every day. I enjoyed how strong plus fit I felt. I lost weight, toned my muscles plus improved stamina. I then developed plantar fasciitis in both feet. I was running in a pair of 10 dollar sneakers with no arch support. They weren’t designed to absorb the impact of running on the pavement, plus the shoes were worn out. The pain in our feet became so bad that I had trouble simply walking. The splitting sensation from heel to the toe would occasionally wake me up in the middle of the night. I worried that I’d never run again. It took a long time to get my feet healed. I needed to avoid any hard impact, ice them a lot, stretch them plus take lots of pills. I also saved up the cash to buy a good pair of running shoes. I no longer run 7 days a week. I restrict myself to running no more than 3 days per week plus I update my sneakers every year. I rest my feet by weight lifting, swimming, kayaking plus riding a bike. I also need to wear specialized inserts in our shoes to supply added support for our arches.
