Today, I got my "free lunch" by not having to work brunch and getting to play with this crazy girl all day instead:
|The playground was her "castle", and every time she sees a camera she yells "CHEESE!" so this time,|
she yelled "Castle Cheese!"
|Later, at another playground, she practiced her sweaty, sand-covered pageant wave.|
|If my foot were an emoticon, it would be >_<*|
There's nothing really *wrong* with the foot, which is to say I have yet to bother getting my suspected plantar fasciitis confirmed with an actual diagnoses from a real, live doctor. Of course today, toward the end of my run I had a fun new pain on the ball of my foot, toward my instep. Please, oh please don't be a bunion trying to form. My feet look bad enough in cute shoes, with my awkwardly large pads spilling over the sides of just about any dainty sandal or wedge.
|At least I'm not the only person with this problem.|
It's not really that bad, this is just the best way for me to apply compression to my arch and ice it at the same time with a lunchbox ice pack that doesn't form to my foot at all. Which has me thinking... are there any ice packs out there (other than the gel kind, which my dogs LOVE to find if I leave them out and try to eat the blue stuff inside) with a more ergonomic design for feet? Off to Amazon.com...
Here we go:
|Cold One Plantar Fasciitis Foot Wrap|
I need something that I can just put on my foot and still be semi-mobile with. When it comes to choosing to ice with my foot up for 20 minutes and having the opportunity to ice while I still get stuff done (unlike right now), I think this wrap might be the way to go!
Despite this slight setback of discomfort, it has been an awesome day. Besides playing and running hard, we got to go to a nearby neighborhood festival and decided to hit up Fruttela for a froyo fix before we ended our busy day. Totally better than ice cream, even with the cookie crumb toppings, right?
How was your Sunday? There were lots of races today- did you run one?
How do you ruin your healthy frozen yogurt? For me, it's any Oreo-esque topping, cookie dough, or marshmallows.
