Foot arch pain
Today I did my walk the opposite way round by starting off going through the village before hitting the country lanes. Normally I start with the lanes and come back through the village.
The reason I did it this way round was to call in at the chemists to get a foot arch support for my right foot. The arch cramps like crazy when I've been walking a bit, with shooting, tingling pains going right along it. The more I walk when it does that, the more intense the pain gets, till I have to stop and let it subside a while.
I've had this problem a couple of years to be honest, and get around it by only walking quite slowly. On the occasions I have to belt it somewhere in a hurry, I'm always in trouble. And on my walks now, I'm in trouble, because I want to keep up a brisk pace.
I think it might be getting a winsy bit better with the exercise, but I googled in last night and found out about foot arch supports. Unfortunately, my local chemist didn't stock them, so later on today I shall go on an expedition for one further afield.
