    Calling all Heavy guys...

    I am like 240ish right now and for the last year or so never did a thing but eat.. LOL

    Back when I was 170-200 (I would vary) I was doing crazy amount of cardio with no problem other then leg soreness..

    Now, my feet throb like hell ALL DAY LONG, even at night when its time to go to sleep I feel my feet throbbing..

    I am curious if this is something my feet will get used to, or I will build feet muscle (lol)

    Should I keep my feet elevated at work?

    Pedicure?

    or just man up and deal with it?

    Thanks

    i have some problems with my feet always hurting. i used to be 160 for many many years. now im 215. so that increase in weight is what i think is givin me the discomfort. so far other then buyin a new pair of nike shox every month, nothing has made any drastic affects on it

    you need to take a break and gradually increase your exercise duration and intensity. This will give your body time to adapt and repair without injury.

    I mean take a few extra off days or decrease the intensity until your foot heals, eventually if your not on top of things you may be taking a much longer break without your choice.

    I just don't think it would get better until I eventually lose weight (catch 22)
    I never had feet problems till I got fat, LOL 90lbs.

    My feet even hurt on the bike, which is weird because I try to portion my weight between my ass, hands and feet.

    I wonder if I wrap my feet with tape?

    Ice them every night?

    I totally hear ya though, but I just don't think it would or will get better till I slowly lose weight.

    i actually use my moms foot bath thing. you fill it full of hot water, it massages the bottom of your feet, and it emits heat throughout.

    it helps get the blood flowing and relax the muscles and pain away. but it wont cure anything. just helps make it bareable a bit more

    yeah Ice it as soon as you get done. Try to do low or none impact cardio for a while. Your feet would be fine if you would have eventually started of slowly and gradually increased your intensity and duration. I see this time and time again among my clients, patients and customers.

    Its ok to be gung ho about it, the body just needs time to adapt to any new stress it is under. Given enough time the body can adapt to practically anything.

    Look up these two terms, that I will link for you and you will understand better what I am talking ah-boot....LOL

    WOW Thanks, Currently I am doing 45 min in the morning, usually Elliptical or Treadmill, then the bike in the evening for another 45 min. or so.

    Including 3x a week with weights..

    But I sit most of the day at work and wear flip flops. I just don't get it, lol

    i used to get that pain for a long time when i first started getting back into running. everytime i would run my feet and my shins and calves would kill me. then i got sick and took a week off and after that my feet and calves/shins are fine. i think they needed that week off to repair themselves. oh i started at 280 and am at 245 now so i know your pain. but imo you do build muscle in those areas due to the extra weight.
