hmm. Wrong direction!
This month I am wearing a progress shirt. I hope to be able to wear it to 4H meetings someday.
Why is this called InchwormByInchworm?
Inchworms move slowly, like improving fitness.
Also there is an exercise called the inchworm.
It seems to me that walking requires a lot of cushioning, as the heel takes a lot of pressure, and that pressure reverberates up the body.
But not-walking (I hesitate to call what I do “running”) with good form means you come down on the ball of the foot — gentler than the heel. And, you want to develop the muscles to support that movement — but cushioning babies the supporting muscles too much, which can lead to injury.
So I’m going to try something. I have a $15 pair of shoes with a $5 pair of inserts for the heel and arch. Instead of replacing them at 500 miles or six months, I’ll replace them at 3 months.
That’s still 2/3 the cost of one pair of specialty shoes, which are supposed to be replaced 2x a year.
And I’ll probably wear them everyday, which is also a big no no in running shoes. That’s where the Payless inserts really help.
If I start to feel pain I’ll know my hypothesis is wrong!
Ive been collecting clean eating and paleo recipes on the Evernote app. I’ve also been counting calories on the FitnessPal app. I didn’t count calories on vacation, but I am getting to know how my tummy feels throughout the day when I am eating within calorie guidelines. I gained 1 lb on vacation. Back on the counting calories wagon. There is always such a discrpancy in calories between the food choices displayed on the app. I try my best and cross my fingers. It is like Gnosticism — secret knowledge!
