I spent the week recovering from my foot injury.  Based on recommendations this is what I did:

  • Rest: No running
  • Ice: Icing the foot for 20 minutes at a time
  • Compression:  Picked up an ankle compression sleeve from Walgreens
  • Elevation:  Portion of each evening with foot on a cushion

In addition I ordered a stability disk from Amazon :Isokinetics Deluxe Balance Board.  I also went to Marathon Sports in Melrose and it was their analysis that my Brooks shoe had too much structure for my feet.  They put me in a Saucony shoe that I absolutely love.  I feel no pain when walking in it.

My foot is feel is feeling much better 7 days after I injured it.
