I thought that my long distance walking days might behind me due to intense foot pain but today I excitedly picked up some custom made insoles from the friendly folk at Foot Solutions in Plymouth. You may remember that this purchase has was motivated by the death of a former hiking companion from Motor Neurone Disease.Disease. A couple of weeks ago I had a comprehensive assessment and a pair of insoles with what look like unfeasibly high arch supports to match my unfeasibly high arches have arrived from the United States.
Fingers crossed that they'll do the trick. Let me start out with a few day hikes first and I'll let you know if I'm painfree after more than a hour or so of walking. If so, I'll set off with my backpack for my longer Lori Salzarulo Memorial Walk. I know she would have loved this.
