So, I've been trying to figure out different methods of cross training that would make me appreciate running more, and strengthen areas which running doesn't.
Yoga would be my first choice, if I could find a place that I could do it within my budget. I wish the studios were a little less trendy, but what can you do?
SCA fencing was my second choice. Lot's of lateral motion, and it's a game which requires a lot of thinking. Though speed and endurance help a lot, too.
The problem is, I hurt my right foot on a run a few weeks back. Nothing major, but just a pain in the arch. it's possible I've compensated a bit since I first injured it... the pain has spread to the outside of my foot.
None of it is to the point of worrying- it only hurts when I start moving after sitting for a long time, and its more stiffness than actual discomfort- most of the time. But the overall pain in my foot has gone up since fencing yesterday, and that worries me a bit.
So I'm probably going to can that method of cross training. And explore my options with respect to yoga perhaps a bit more...
