Walking again

A couple of months ago, I had to stop walking. I had been walking 3-5 miles or more a day with the dog. S and I would go out each evening, re-connect after busy days and it was a great way to get some fitness time in as well. My foot/feet had started bugging me more than the arthritis I have in both feet. This was agonizing. A trip to the doctor ended up in a referral to a specialist and the removal of all "extra walking" Sitting still is not my forte but in the hopes of quickly getting back to my regular routine, I did it. The specialist diagnosed me with plantar fasciitis and tendonitis in addition to the arthritis. She recommended a boot and cortisone shots but our insurance is so poor that we had to try a different route of physio and ultra sound. After several weeks and little change, I am in the boot. Its frustrating as I had not realized how much a part of my routine walking had become. I was in a lot better shape 8 weeks ago than I am now and that is the biggest frustration. Yesterday S. left for 11 days of work and fun so by necessity, I am walking the dog. While it isn't our usual 3-5 miles (more like 5 blocks) it has been great to get back out there. Its been a long 2 months. The best part is my walking buddy. Now I just need to have the inflammation go down enough to get back to my regular activities without the boot.
