Ouch

If anyone ever hears me saying I am going to the gym for heavens sake stop me.

Having gone to the gym a few sundays ago and being energised by the exercise I was more than a little shocked to have such a negative reaction to my latest visit.

Having sat on my bed chatting I found that when I tried to walk it was absolute agony, I could hardly put any weight on my feet. How could this be when my workout had been minimal.

After a little perserverance walking became easier. Having changed my bedding I settled down to watch a dvd. I was totally relaxed until once again I tried to walk around. It felt as though both my ankles had been crushed.

I went to bed worrying about how my legs would be in the morning. But luckily when I woke my legs were fine.

I am not sure why I had such a bad time as having only been to the gym once in recent months I tried not to over do it and go mad. All I did was 10 minutes on treadmill (5 minutes walking at a steady brisk walk followed by 30 seconds of fast walking then one minute of steady walking repeated for 5 minutes). Then onto the static bike 4 minutes of steady cycling followed by 6 minutes of 10 seconds fast and 20 seconds steady cycling. On another day I would have done double that without these problems.

I can only think it has something to do with a glitch at the start of my session on the treadmill. I tried to program in my weight so that I could monitor calories burnt off. Instead I was programming in the speed. Of course this was faster than I could comfortably manage so I quickly adjusted the speed.
I have sent Romeo a message telling him that it is all his fault. If he was here I wouldn't need to spend my sunday afternoons at the gym as I can think of a much better way to exercise on a sunday afternoon.

Maybe it was the shoes you were wearing? You really shouldn't have been in agony from that amount of exercise. Not that I can comment...I haven't been to the gym for ages!

Me neither can't remember the last time I went to the gym, but that was a lot of pain for you to endure, you need to keep an eye on it....hope you feel better today..xx

could be your shoes, you might need inserts. go to a running shoe store, yes even if you aren't running, they are the experts of footwear, trust me.
it could be the dreaded plantar faciatus (sp?) I know I used to run 25 to 30 miles a week, can't now due to my knee and achilles.. but I know the pain.

I suspect it was the speed and the duration if you're not used to doing either. I walk a lot but the first few days when I go back to my daily regime after a holiday are always very uncomfortable. Maybe some gentle calf stretches will help...?

And another much better way to exercise is to go for a walk. It's such a con to pay to walk on a treadmill when you could be out in the fresh air smelling, seeing and listening. IMO.
