OK, so I walked the dogs this afternoon, in my running shoes, having abandoned by Merrells to see what difference it would make. The walk itself was about as uncomfortable as it has been in previous days, but to be fair, I did cycle 32 miles this morning and hurt my foot yesterday. The big difference is that when I got back, my foot has not been nearly as sore. It’s minorly sore, and oddly it is sore in a different place. The outside of my foot which has been sore for the past week, including yesterday when it was really quite painful indeed, is today not anything close to being as sore.
Success? Too early to say, but I’ve ordered another pair of Brooks Adrenaline GTS 12 shoes so I can walk around in them at work. No, I’m not shitting you.
