My PF had me limping over the weekend so I thought it best to get off my feet. It’s an odd feeling. I feel better everywhere else when I manage to exercise but the pain is so disabling. I can’t seem to find a balance. It’s driving me nuts.

I started walking uphill for exercise. There was one day when I couldn’t get a treadmill and had to settle for the elliptical. I know that this hurts my foot and hip, not as badly as walking flat, but still. So I did only 20 minutes. So, either 20 minutes on the elliptical is now too much or just all that uphill walking was too much because my foot hurts again. This week I swear nothing but hills, even if I have to wait for a machine.
Someone told me that walking up a steep hill would not aggravate PF so I’ve been doing that this week. So far no major pain. I’ll just have to see how it goes.
I’m stumped. Forget about exercise, just going about a normal day puts me in a splint by day’s end. I’ve tried every kind of orthotic, and some work very well, but at the end of the day, my foot hurts if I’ve spent any time at all on it. I stretch, I tape, I’ve done PT and massage, but this appears intractable. I get pretty tired of people telling me to work through the pain because that is exactly the wrong thing to do, and yet I say the same thing to myself nearly every day. Being “off one’s feet” just sounds lazy. I’m not and the enforced rest is hard for me. What is frustrating is that I think I’m just stuck with this. There is a surgery but while it helps in about half the cases, it makes the problem worse in the other half! I don’t like those odds. Not that I could afford surgery anyway! Someone suggested walking at a severe uphill angle and I think I’ll try that on the treadmill and see how it goes.
After a week of being on my feet all day, nearly every day, I’m lame. My mornings actually require a cane. This is not conducive to exercise. Once the pain and stiffness settle down I can stretch it out and walk unassisted but I fear rekindling that pain and inflammation. I am so tired of this and don’t know why I can’t just get rid of this nagging problem!
I got a Wii with the Wii Fit board. My SIL had it and never used it so she gave it to me this weekend. Been wanting one since visiting Jessy and using hers.
Spent 20 minutes on the treadmill as all the elipticals were taken. Came home and iced my foot. We’ll see if I can walk tomorrow.
I didn’t go to the gym today. I spent the day in my studio – on my feet – glazing the salt cellars. And my feet hurt. I’ve iced ‘em and am off them now, but every time I stand up they ache. So it’s the all day standing, not the elliptical, which is good, I guess.
I love Saturday mornings at the community center. It’s a different pace, with the die-hards taking the weekend off and the rest dragging in late. If I go at opening I have the pool to myself. But today I thought I’d try the elliptical. I’ve been sleeping in these awful foot braces that have helped some, I think. So I thought I’d try again. I don’t know if it was the measly 20 minutes I spent on it or the fact that I’ve been on my feet most of the day, doing housework, crafts with the granbeanie, and a bit of pottery, but I am now icing my poor foot again, hoping that by the time my SO picks me up for dinner I won’t limp. Argh.
I spent an unexpected day in the garden, lifting heavy bags of dirt (ouch) digging, pulling and pushing. I’m whipped! And my feet hurt from walking/standing on them all day. Must ice ‘em before bed.
