Eliptical and weight training

No walking is getting really hard.  For as much as I may complain, I do really love getting out and walking.  I find it helps to clear my head.

I have been to the chiropractor twice now and he has made huge changes.  I only need one more crack from him.  He also said that I need arch supports as my TFL and Piroformus pain is coming from my feet.  As I over pronate it is twisting my right knee inwards and hence rotating my hip.  I refuse to pay $500 for orthotics that they can only fit into one pair of shoes, so for a test I brought some arch supports from the Foot Master and today is the first day I have worn them.  The plus is they fit in my sneakers, my race flats and I even got them into my flat ballet type shoes I wear at work.  I get to try a walk on Monday....I so hope this goes well.  I did have appointments for physio but my boss has told me I am not able to go in work time and the physio I was seeing only works mornings.  Nothing I can do about it.

So am I feeling any better? Yes and No.  Yes as my back no longer hurts in the SI joint nor do I have the nerve pain in my feet.  NO as my TFL and Piroformus are aching and hurting so I still cant walk.  I have brought tennis balls today and will throw the wheat bag on to heat it up and then ball it.  Hopefully the spasm will release.

So today in my new arch supports, I did 30mins on the eliptical.  Set it to level 9 and managed to walk further in kms than the other day and the best news was neither of my calf's hurt like last time.  After the cardio Shane and I did a very short quick upper body work out and headed out for the day.
