For the last year or so I have had some struggles with my feet as a result of my running. I have a bone spur on my left heel & I've had some tightness & swelling in my right foot. Niether problem has been all unbearably painful, but it's been consistent enough that I wanted to ask my doctor about it before I committed myself to the 2008 Indianapolis Mini Marathon. So I went to see him on Tuesday. What's cool about my doc is that he is a member of the same running group that I have joined this year so he understands why I want to participate again. The bad news is that he doesn't want me to run again AT ALL until March 1st. Yikes! That seems like a long time away. He did advise me to go ahead & sign up for the training group as a walker & then ease back into running slowly for the race in May. Until then I'm restricted to walking & yoga. Yoga = yuck! So boring...pose, hold, breathe...over & over & over again. I'm going to check into maybe taking a class so it will be a little less dull. Anybody out there a yoga enthusiast? Got any tips for me? I just don't want to get totally out of shape between now & then & I do want my feet to heal up. I've still got a long way to go with them!
