Hi everyone,

So I enjoy running and cycling and lifting weights (the last in a pretty minor way--only once or twice a week).

I've recently been having problems with one foot; got new orthotics and it's getting worse. The podiatrist told me to give myself 6 weeks to adjust to the new inserts before coming back...that's in 2-3 weeks.

In the meantime, I'm actually having trouble walking and so am not running much. So here's my question:

Besides cycling and swimming, any thoughts on good cardio workouts that don't involve much or any footwork? I suspect the answer's no, but thought the collective brain might yield more than my solo brain. :)

Thanks!

I would say yoga personally. It helps stretch your foot, well entire body, and you can work up a good sweat. I know yoga helped when my heel was so tender I was walking on tiptoes to get around

Rowing. If you push hard it is good cardio.

Thanks everyone! I'll try everything but the rowing machine...I used to row in an actual boat and so the machine is too horrible to contemplate again since I know how good the real thing is. :)

Yoga is great. You could find a place with nice and soft grass and run on it - I'm having foot problems myself and running on grass is really great, strengtening your feet and ankles and no knee pains at all. It's all natural.

Elliptical? I've had collapsed ankles (overpronation) for years so have avoided any impact cardio and just stuck to the crosstrainer. Foot problems are horrible, hope it sorts itself.
