Sweating on Sunday: Exercising with Painful Feet

Updated 4/18/2021 I have always had painful feet my whole life.  It is just worse now that I am older.  When I am exercising inside, I prefer to be barefoot.   However, running in place in bare feet can be very painful.   I wear these inserts, inside my Crocs, for outdoor walking, or running in place indoors.  I also am looking at purchasing a pair of these Yoga socks.  When I am at work, where I average 12,000 steps every time I work, I rely on New Balance running shoes or Sketchers on the Go.  I love my Sketchers on the Go.  They are starting to wear out and I really need to buy a new pair. I just ordered these Compression Socks with heel support for indoor walking, or tired legs. I will post whether I like them, or not, after wearing them for a while.    Last Summer I had a period of time where I had Plantar Fasciitis.  If you have experienced that you know it is extremely painful and makes walking let alone exercise incredibly difficult.  The inserts mentioned above saved my feet, and then the New Balance sneakers.  I don’t personally wear the inserts in the New Balance sneakers.  It is too hot and uncomfortable for me.  I wear them when barefoot or inside my open back Crocs.  There may be other products on the market that work just as well, but these are the go-to products that I must have. 

Do you have painful feet?  What products do you have to have?  If you would like to work with a Health Coach to help manage your painful feet, use the contact form below to message me.

The stretches in the video below I still use today even though my Plantar Fasciitis is healed. It is not something I wish to have return anytime soon. While Plantar Fasciitis is a pain in the foot it is more of a calf issue.

My Favorite Shoes!

First this is not an affiliate link.  I get no money for sharing this.  I share because I like to share marvelous products.  I am not a huge fan of Sketchers.  They are always so heavy and bulky.  On the days I work outside the home, I average 10-12,000 steps per 8 hour shift.  That is a lot of stress on the feet.  I bought these Sketchers on the Go, about 2 weeks ago, and since then have logged almost 50,000 steps.  I usually buy Crocs, but they didn’t have the color I wanted, or New Balance, but I have a decent pair of them.  So, I figured I would try these.  They are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn!  They are light, comfortable like pillows.  I just love them.  The only thing not so great is I don’t believe they are slip resistant.  Other than that definitely a 10.  I bought  mine at JC Penney, but I am sharing the Amazon link for any of you interested, and so I can find them again should Penneys not have them anymore.
