My orthotics are in!! My doctor called this morning at 9 am to tell me my long-awaited orthotics had arrived in his office. I was on the road to Cincinnati by noon. It took 3 hours on the dot to drive to Cincinnati, get the goods, and drive home. The kids were super good and I was so grateful. I was dying to get out and run all afternoon. I finally hit the road at about 5:30. I walked 2.5 miles and ran .5 of a mile. The doctor has me on an exact schedule of running so I get used to the orthotics and don't get injured. They felt good. Nothing hurt. My IT Band especially did not hurt. I have no blisters yet. (He said there is a chance I will get blisters and need an adjustment.) Below are pictures of them. The top side and the bottom side. They just fit in your shoe and basically make you a super-star. Ha ha. I wish. I'll be happy if they help keep me from getting injured again!
