It's a game of patience

Well doctor i suck at this game. When to physio today. I really want to get back at soccer but he doesn't know if i'm ready yet. After him advising me again playing soccer tonight, i decided to go and test them out. We were playing in the new indoor full size soccer pitches. Thought the floor (recycled rubber material & other stuff) would actually have some give as opposed to the dirt ground.

Must say they felt okay when i was playing, except for the insoles and the raising of my heel. I got a blister on my right foot.

Friday is another story the shins are sore, well actually the whole body is sore. I haven't done this much activity in a long time.

I did enjoy the soccer game last night, i am out of shape. But i learnt my lesson, they aren't ready yet. I'm going to have to continue to play the game of patience longer and not be tempted to play soccer or ball.
Now, I'm going to relax the shins over the long weekend. Then continue with the 20 min run/walk every second day. In 4 weeks time i go see him again. If the running isn't aggrevating the shins then we will start with jumping and cutting exercises.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

I'm excited

Today, i went to the physio and my shins were good. We wanted to test them out so yesterday i went for a short run. No pain was involved during the run...except the pain in my lungs (from non-exercise). My next physio appt is for 2 weeks away...we are finally making progress. I still need to continue with my 4 exercises daily and i can run every second day but i still need to not push myself too much. The pain (if any) will determine how much i can run.

I ended up getting some shoes and insoles from a store in town. I think i need to return the shoes cause the heels are too loose and my heel seems to lift too much. Today, when i was wearing them again i could feel them rubbing and could tell blisters would be formed if i continue to wear them. The insoles i think might be too high for my arch i also feel light the heel is getting raised too much in the shoes. I wish i wouldve been more selective in the shoes, cause i remember the sign saying refunds for instore credit. Well they didn't have too much running shoes and the other two pairs the sales person selected for me to try on were bad, not a good fit.
