A little over a year ago I was on the first day of the second month of insanity and felt something "snap" in my left foot. It hurt like hell for a week and has remained an intermittent pain ever since.
I despise it because I can't seem to do any training and have put on a lot of weight. To be frank, I hate the way I look and, since I've also been balding for the last few years, my social anxiety has gone up tremendously and my self esteem has dropped down SO much. I hate photos of me. I hate videos of me. I can't even talk to women anymore. I mean it's just really, really pathetic and I know it.
Anyway, I'm trying again. I bought new weights, new running shoes, compression socks(which have helped tremendously), I've changed my diet and enrolled in nutrisystem. I've been getting at least fourty five minutes of cardio and half an hour of weights in every day.
My problem is that, though the compression socks help a great deal, sometimes when I wake up my foot hurts really bad and it takes a few hours for it to feel normal enough to even consider jogging. This is an issue because I like jogging in the early morning and evening honestly because there's virtually a zero percent chance of anyone seeing me on the trails.
Are there any exercises to help with the pain or any recommendations that may assist me to alleviate the tension in my foot in the morning? I'm sorry for the length of the question, thank you for reading.
