My foot hates me :(

I’ve had quite an active day today.  This morning I went for a jog.  Once again, I jogged 3k and then my foot started going numb.  I couldn’t run any further because it was slightly painful and not being able to feel your feet is a bit unnerving.  So I ended up jogging 3km and walking 2km.  I really don’t know what’s causing this.  I suspect it may be due to my leg-length discrepancy  (I wear a heel wedge in my left foot but it’s the right foot losing circulation). 

11_3_origIt’s starting to frustrate me a lot because I really wanted to get into running in a bigger way.  I think it can be a really effective way of improving cardio and losing weight.  Plus it’s so easy.  I’m going to have to see somebody about it.  My family says to check with my doctor but I suspect it might be something a podiatrist might know more about.

I tried a new app for my android phone to track my run… Endomondo.  Doesn’t seem much different than RunKeeper.  Not sure which I prefer, to be honest.

This afternoon my brother and I walked to the gym and I took him through my cardio routine.  Was all good.  I tried the scales at this gym and if they’re to be believed I’ve gained 3kg *gasp*, but I’m not gonna worry until I get back home and weigh myself on my normal scales…  they seem much nicer to me!  I’m eating a lot of delicious, nutritious food here, and I really don’t know what to expect on the scales when I get back.

I’m feeling quite fatigued today…  sore lower back… stiff neck….  time for a day off tomorrow, I guess.

Today was my day off the gym but I hate not doing anything so I went for a run instead.  Last week I jogged 5km non-stop for the first time, but I wasn’t able to do so today;  I think I’m feeling pretty fatigued.  I jogged for about 3km but then walked for most of the rest (stopping to buy milk on the way).

My right foot is still going numb at about the 4km mark, as it has on previous runs.  I have a leg-length deficiency;  my left leg is 1cm shorter than my right, and although I have a heel wedge in my left shoe, I think this deficiency might be the cause of my right foot numbness.  I’ll have to go see somebody about it.

Last night I was feeling a bit depressed and pigged out on fish and chips again…  sigh. This was after having a chicken burger and milkshake for lunch.  I always seem to turn to junk food when I’m feeling tired/drained.

Maybe I’m pushing it too hard?  But I’m not making much weight loss progress recently.  Gah.  It seems to be getting harder recently, not easier.
