oh no!  Definitely keep doing upper body workouts that dont require standing…think assisted pullups, seated rows, seated inverse fly, pushups with your legs on a large yoga ball, etc.  you can definitely do it!!

From wearing flipflops too much?  Weird.  I was a DM for Abercrombie for 2 years, wore flops EVERY SINGLE DAY (I still do, when Im not at work!) and I used to have sore arches, but nothing like that.  Sorry love Embarassed  Get that healed up in the next month!!

thanks for the congrats!  Yeah, you can definitely do it.  But you dont want to gimp down the aisle on your wedding day!!  find out how you can wrap it for support or comfort JUST IN CASE it gets sore from dancing.  By then you’ll have most photos out of the way so if you wrap it under your dress nobody will see Wink

Oh no, I’m so sorry to hear this!  Hopefully even if you can’t run, you can keep up your workouts in non-impact ways–biking, lifting, yoga, pilates, even swimming.  I know I’ve got plantar fascitis and I’ve almost stopping running all together lately.  I miss it, but I’ve been able to keep up with my workouts with the elliptical and bike.

Oh no! Perhaps some physical therapy can assist in the healing (and it also provides a light workout) during your downtime. Keep working that upper body and you will be a-ok!

at least you can hide your legs under your dress so now you can have rocking arms and back!

Erindesmar,

I used to get plantar fasciitis a lot when I was running more (and I, too, live in flip flops!).  If the tendinitis is in your arches, you might try this.  It always helped me: freeze a water bottle, then place it laying down on the floor, and role it under your foot (push harder, as you can).  Just a suggestion!  Of course, follow your Doctor’s orders…

Oh Erin!!! Sending good thoughts your way!  I hope that foot feels better.  Flip flops?  Well I’m surprised I’m not in a body cast right now b/c of all the years I’ve worn them…

I feel your pain girl. I had bronchitis and am just now feeling up to going running again, but the darn weather here is so rainy I am limited so I guess I’ll begin the 30 day shred all over again!

I hope you feel better 🙂

Do you have the ability to still use an elliptical or an arc trainer?  They don’t require you to pick your foot up and put it back down.  I’m ignorant on what foot tendonitis is or involves.

When I broke my toe and couldn’t run I was able to use the elliptical without any pain.  An arc trainer is another thing to try.  I guess it kept me off the front of my foot, unlike walking and running, which DID hurt.

And your upper body muscles are all the muscles that show, so that will work out well at least.

How about those gorgeous Cole Haan Nike Air wedding shoes with the gorgeous rosettes coming down the side?

Just a thought.  Hugs to you Erin.  Wishing you well like NOW.
