I got gel insoles for my shoes, because my feet have been killing me at my work at the library.
Now don’t laugh, please, because while it’s true that I’m not standing on a concrete factory floor for 12 hours a day like some folks have to, I am standing and walking most of my time at the library. It isn’t painful at the beginning of the day, but by the end of the day, it can be and when you need to walk a mile home (yes, through the knee-deep snow oftentimes and with the wind whipping ice pellets into your face, like back in the day) after your shift, that isn’t something you’re looking forward to.
So now I hope to be looking forward to those long walks home through the wind, the snow, the sleet and the rain as I’ll be gellin’:
The Zinfandelin’ will happen later in the week, when I can look back at all the snowdrifts (okay, more metaphorical than actual, but still it is a pile of something) I’ve trekked through and be glad I’ll have a break over the weekend from them.
So what’s holding you back from walking more? Do you need gel insoles? For the record, mine actually were generic ones, from Rite-Aid and weren’t Dr. Scholl’s, so don’t let the price hold you back from getting out there and walking comfortably. (Um, yes, I know it’s Tuesday when I’m publishing this, but better late than never…)
