I'm bored...

I'm bored, my right ankle and foot hurt some cause my foot is supinating, and my Brooks aren't helping with that, so it's off to the running shoe store this weekend, so I can get some shoes or something to help, so I can keep working out...

I'm in the mood to escape with some good tawdry action adventure, like Conan novels or something, but I don't have anything handy...Pink my muse has told me she has a hot party to go to tonight, so don't expect her to help in any escapism (I tell ya, I am ready for a new lead muse...Maybe I'll go back and look up that Kami who was interested in the job....LOL).

But after 2 weeks of almost daily gym visits, I feel better.  So maybe that's why I'm bored...too much energy to sit here and geek out.  Could be!

Weird -- I have the exact same problem with my right ankle. Spooky...

If the new shoes don't solve the problem (didn't for me), try an ankle brace -- I just bought one of those lace-up Ace-brand ones at the drugstore, and it seems to have pretty much done the trick.

I've got some braces floating around, including the laceup type...this ankle has had bad luck...one year, back around 1990, I sprained it badly once and a couple of months later, sprained it not quite as badly again. It's never quite forgiven me....but it's the tension on my foot tendons that really drive me crazy...thighs, calves, feet, all tight as a drum and I'm always having to stretch. This is what I get for spending over 2 years in my office chair obsessing over writing without doing any organized exercise....

Lol -- only two years? I've got time on you on that score (*grin*). Although I guess I did take a few dance classes in college, so that interrupted my record of inactivity...

I really need to work on my stretching and flexibility too. The fact that my only source of income these days gives me an excuse to sit hunched over at my computer for eight hours at a time is not doing me any favors. (*sigh*)

It gets worse when you work from home and don't really have to get up and move much...why I hired a trainer to help get me back into shape!

Tell me about it -- I have to invent reasons to leave the house most of the time these days. One of the reasons I decided to try running again was so I'd be able to enjoy the nice gray, chilly weather before it starts getting warm again. I love winter... ;)

i rather like to listen to them as i do something more strenuous than sitting or lounging, besides my eyesight prefers a very large print/font and tires easily-- enjoy =)
