Well folks, its official....I had my first pain free run in months! I was about a mile into my run yesterday and I thought to myself, "Wow my toe doesnt hurt a bit!" I ran 3 10 minute miles and my toe is not sore at all today. Other parts of my body...well that is a different story. Dr. Gordon is truly special and has helped me a lot. I am a firm believer of orthotics now. Also I have noticed that when I walk up stairs the cracking and popping in my knees has decreased dramatically! Im only 30 so that is a GREAT thing.
Today I developed blisters on my heels from my stupid dress shoes. I put my orthotics in them but I didnt take the shoe inserts out. I think that may be the trick. My shoes were rubbing too high on my heels. But...my toe still doesnt hurt so that is a big plus. Its all trial and error. Who knows maybe I will get my husband to dish out some cash for better dress shoes that my orthotics fit nicely in. Its a medical necessity right????!!!!
