Today I went to the podiatrist for another crazy electric current treatment thingy (Phoresor treatment) and it turns out my orthotics finally arrived. Yay! I have to build up to wearing them (one hour the first day, two hours the second day, etc.). Then after I can wear them all day for a week, I finally get to put them in my running shoes and run with them. I'm feeling very excited and hopeful now!
Tomorrow will be my first run in two weeks. No orthotics, but I will be wearing the Saucony Omnis so we'll see how that goes. I think all will be well. My foot feels good, and I'm currently taking prescription anti-inflammatory drugs so I shouldn't end up with any swelling. Plus I will ice after I run. I'm hoping to do 5-6 miles. It's going to feel so good to run again.
