Happy!

I got new running shoes! (what's this shit about me wearing a size 10 shoe though?! Damned arches!! Every time my shoe size goes up, I get shorter - that's just shit!!

My orange sauconys, which I only just got in November, have lost some of their cushion - it happens. I get sore tarsals if I wear them for long, or do a lot of bouncing on my forefoot. They'll be relegated to walking shoes.

OH but I found this article, so I'm going to give this a try. My plantar fasciitis lasted 16 months before easing off. I was nick named Hop-a-Long because I'd often have to hop on one foot around the house. Try breastfeeding and doing that - you'll appreciate how very awesome I can be when I'm determined. The fact that the tarsals are now acting up, as opposed to the heel means my feet are suffering the most from wear and tear. I do worry about arthritis developing in my feet, as that would be hell. I already have signs of arthritis in my fingers (ok, finger - my left pinky gets very stiff and won't bend properly) and in both shoulders, so to get it in my feet, at the age of 35 does not bode well for the future. I should probably start taking aspirin every day.

My daughter keeps telling me she doesn't want me to grow old. I'm not too keen on the idea either.

At least I'm not all wrinkled yet!

(I know I've not replied to your e-mail yet - life is mad! We should meet up this week if it's possible as the kids are on break - or choose your weekend. I'd love to try the burger place again - Ally just loved it and asks for burgers all the time now. Big hugs, hope to see you soon, give me a call sometime!)

Wassa Soucanys?

Lyvvie said...

Saucony is a band name for running shoe. They specialise in cushioned shoes for pampered toes. They are wonderful.

I love boobs (strictly my own thankyouverymuch) but I am carrying two mortgages. Can I sponsor you with good thoughts instead?

Do you run every day? I ran yesterday, and I am so sore today, I may never run again! hahah!

Those shoes are so cute!

I have had arthritis since I was in my mid teens - all my siblings have too. Sucky stock.
I have found that omega oils and that joint supplement - glucosamine and chondroitin - work really well as long as you take them regularly.

BTW - peep, peep, peep!
Just for you. Thanks for the kick in the pants!

are you a brand whore lyv?

Lyvvie said...

Nope, ole' Gezzer my love - I'm not a brand whore. But I do prefer certain branded running shoes over others. I find Reeboks absolutely CRAP! They're far too wide, long and use cheap plastics - they make my feet look like skis and often pong. Nike aren't much better. And you should see the rags I work out in. No, most of my wardrobe is bought in the grocery store - I'm humble to the brands except where it's important. I buy damned good trainers, and even better bras.To be honest, the bra costs the same as the trainers. When I reach goal - I'll put up pictures of me in my sports kit, if it'll help.
