I am so mad!
I've been in the FFs for many weeks and loving it. 2 weeks building up muscle and full time since. Then last night I got bad pain in my left arch. Anatomy diagrams show the abductor m..something as the most likely culprit.
I apparently spent too much of the weekend repeatedly climbing up a long steep hill and endless stairs in FFs at a dear friend's house. It was a death-in-the-family emergency
I lugged computers, numbing agents (booze), food etc. From what I'm reading, this is what likely did me in.
Of course the first thing to do to reduce using it for a bit. "Doctah, Doctah, it hurts when I do this...", "So don't do that.". Muscle injuries for me are a dime a dozen, this one's just in a new spot.
This means back to regular shoes to restrict it until it can heal a bit. Silver lining is I guess this would be a good time to start to break in my new short boots for riding, since the soles on those are definitely stiff enough to keep that muscle still. (Horses and FFs would NOT mix well!)
But dang it, I"m sure not looking forward to that old pain at the end of the night from regular shoes.
