Feet in the clouds

Or so I wish! I’ve just got back from a 10k run, which was nothing short of a struggle!  My lungs are working again, which is always a bonus, but my feet were in pretty bad shape. I tried the padding in a slightly different spot today – actually under my innersole, and I must admit that the left foot was not as bad, but I must have mispositioned the right one as it was like having a nail hammered into each toe every time I landed!  Remarkably, it’s only 10 minutes later and they feel ok, so that is something to be grateful for!  And it is amazing how good endorphins make you feel after running – I think I’ve trained my brain to remember how good they feel after the run rather than remember how much pain it is during it!  Which is why I keep doing it.

Today as I was running, I was trying to visualise soft fluffy, pillowy clouds under my feet, to no avail. I think I should have started doing that earlier on and it may have worked a bit better.

Anyway, back to the podiatrist tomorrow to see if he has any last minute remedies!

Wish me luck!
