That's it I'm hanging up my boots for the forseeable future....
I've jogged 4 miles 2 days in a row and this morning I am REALLY aware
something is not right with my foot and was limping a bit. Its odd
finished the second jog with just the same feeling in the foot "pad"
and no pain but this morning the feeling is in the arch and feels like
I've strained something. At the moment I can walk without a limp but
the running shoes are now in a bag and are put away until the foot
feels normal. Plus I'm not even going for my normal daily brisk walks
of a couple of miles. Peed off as it was an effort to get into and
sustain a routine but it would be stooopid to contine and do damage.
