Many of you remember my ambition to participate in a 10k a month. Well that ended in March with an over ambitious participation in a 15k in which I walked. I finished, with under a 15 minute mile - but I stupidly did it without training. I really pulled some muscles in my right leg from the hip, through my knee, right down to my ankle. I do not want to have an MRI - I have incredibly horrible medical insurance and I'm afraid I will spend lots of money to have them say you need to rest it.
So - I've been resting it, walking the dog a bit less, moving slower when we do walk the dog and not doing races. I've found that when I wear heels to work, my ankle and knee ache. It hurts to stand up from sitting and I walk with a limp. So - I've been wearing my danskos daily again - I love my danskos, my knee and ankle no longer hurt and my hip feels better. But - I find Danskos to be 'clunky'.
So - what do you do when you can't wear heels? I wear a skirt or dress every day. My office dress code is no bare legs, no open toe. While many of the ladies in the office do both bare legs and open toed shoes - so far, I had not. I don't mind wearing panty hose. I like the control top and the warmth they provide again overly air conditioned buildings.
Honestly - I'm hating that I can't wear my heels right now without being in pain. I have a nice selection of shoes - not like Carolyn or Debbie, but nice enough. And I seriously dislike the fact that I'm buying more shoes - but being able to sit, bend and walk without pain is important.
Finally - do you wear slingbacks with hosery?
