So with all the free-time-calm-before-the-grad-school-starving-storm, I've been walking around a lot more and pounding the treadmill at the gym almost every day. But because of all the increased activity, pronation, and because I wear shoes like these
I have to wear this to bed at night until the inflamed tendon in my foot is alleviated:
I argued for several minutes with the podiatrist when he tried to tell that all people everywhere should wear only shoes like these, all the time:
Actually, first I laughed, then gaped in horror when I realized he was serious, then argued, then caved in and lied and said I'd try to buy a few pairs of shoes with a good sturdy, unbendable sole and slight raised heel.
And the elliptical machine is apparently better for the aged than the treadmill.
