I've had the worst time getting my orthodics right...I'm went to the sports dr(s) that all the athletes go to for footie problems.<br><br>
Round 1...right arch cutting in, blisters<br><br>
Round 2...right arch too much support, still cutting in blisters. Oh...and left one was too SHORT!<br><br>
Round break-in period...just put them in my asics...going shopping. I won't run in them until I've put a week of walking around in them.<br><br>
If this doesn't work, I think I'll throw in the towel. Tri training is about to really pick up next cycle...unless Sheldon grounds me again. Don't need to add new things in when training gets "more 'funner' "

$ more try. Just sayin'<br><br>
Wasn't happy before...if I'm not happy once I start running in them I PROMISE I'll put them away.<br><br>
I'm just wearing them out and about. The right one def. feels way better than before.
Niem-the peeps I went to for my orthodics are the foot drs for the Falcons, Thrashers and Hawks.<br><br>
CC goes to them too.<br><br>
I think I got unlucky...everyone else that went to them seems to have gotten a good fit the first time.<br><br>
I tried super feet before the orthodic route. Those cut into my arches.<br><br>
You win some, you lose some.<br><br>
As for my other sports probs, I have a good sports chiro who fixes me up nice!
Julien is hard to get an appoint. with. It's his partner...peobles or however you spell it. Same office...
I'm kinda surprised that Dr. P didn't follow up properly. He's given me a lot of attention. Crap. He even called me to check up after IMFL.<br><br>
Isn't compartment syndrome hard to diagnose?<br><br>
Either way...if round 3 is disastrous again, I'm done.<br><br>
So far, from just walking about the right one feels much better.
Yup-each time they were well-broken in before I ran in them...hence me waiting until next week to run in them.
