A month of swimming or bicyclling, and upper-body lift is not giving up. I bet you're a long-distance fag, and like most of those you need the upper body workout anyway.

2017-08-20 03:44:41 UTC  

I used to be a runner, too. Sorry if I my specualtions were wrong or insulting, it was meant to be funny.

2017-08-20 03:45:34 UTC  

My best Two-Mile run was 11:02. I'm still pretty pround of it.

2017-08-20 03:45:53 UTC  

Proud, I meant.

2017-08-20 03:46:19 UTC  

I'm trying to get into long distance and free running

2017-08-20 03:47:10 UTC  

And I never even got to run in my transitional shoes and my foot is already messed up

2017-08-20 03:51:48 UTC  

Some blame shoes for mankind's physical problems. I can't stand barefooting, personally. After 14 days of rest, you might try hiking. And you should look into the arcane theory of "grounding." -Which involves hiking in mocassins. SEE wwwDot.moccasinscanada.com/mens/moccasin-boots/earthing-cork-moosehide

2017-08-20 03:52:36 UTC  

Is hiking really the best option since that's pretty much the cause of this?

2017-08-20 03:53:13 UTC  

I've always felt unnatural in big shoes but my mother always forced me to wear them.

2017-08-20 03:53:57 UTC  

Good question. I like hiking, and never had the same problems from that as running. "Earthing" with moccasins gets your foot bones and muscles a little work-out.

2017-08-20 03:55:38 UTC  

I'd be up for something like that once it doesn't hurt to walk anymore. Unfortunately I can't get out of my long work shifts

2017-08-20 03:56:50 UTC  

My podiatrist taught me how to tape my feet, and ordered 500 dollar inserts. I'd suggett Spenco Total Support insoles, which are less than 30 bucks: https://www.amazon.com/Spenco-Total-Support-Insoles-Womens/dp/B008CJNTI6?th=1

@StrawberryArmada Night splints worked wonders for my plantar fasciitis. I only had to wear them a few nights and it was gone, after weeks of pain.

2017-08-26 17:47:54 UTC  

Do you know where I can get one?

2017-08-27 00:23:59 UTC  

Walgreens or cvs

2017-08-27 00:24:02 UTC  

Walmart

2017-08-27 00:27:41 UTC  

This is one I like the best. Got at Walgreens

2017-08-27 01:33:14 UTC  

Anyone online?

2017-08-27 01:33:41 UTC  

What's up brother?

2017-08-27 01:34:56 UTC  

I got a swollen bee sting. Should I just wait it out, or do something about it?

2017-08-27 01:36:12 UTC  

Not particularly painful, but annoying to walk with because it's on my foot

2017-08-27 01:38:45 UTC  

How bad is the swelling? I assume you're not allergic

2017-08-27 01:44:09 UTC  

@Helbrecht - WA The side of my foot has noticeably grown, though I can still put shoes on.

2017-08-27 01:44:32 UTC  

Not allergic

2017-08-27 01:46:25 UTC  

Benadryl would be best. It'll slow down and stop anything that could be going on. And if you know where exactly the bee sting is a baking soda and water paste on it will draw out the bees venom which will help a lot too

2017-08-27 01:47:14 UTC  

As long as your whole foot isn't swelling up and you're not having other symptoms it's nothing to be too worried about 😃

2017-08-27 01:48:56 UTC  

@Helbrecht - WA Thank you

2017-08-27 01:49:24 UTC  

No problem!

2017-08-27 02:09:03 UTC  

Aye and ice and elevation can't hurt either

2017-08-27 02:18:09 UTC  

@Deleted User Thank you too

2017-08-27 02:46:00 UTC  

All of the above is great

2017-08-28 02:13:11 UTC  

@everyone who will be going to an event any time soon? I'm going to be making small kits for the medics in the crowd, and an ambulance bag for the triage point/medic truck. For the higher ups, I think this would be the best way to coordinate the medic teams. C-ville was kind of a cluster-f for us, and I think we should focus on getting structured. This includes comms, universal kit setups, a point that all elements (security, etc.) Know where to take someone for medical care.

2017-08-28 02:37:05 UTC  

Great idea, Joe. I know we'd be interested in those kits.

2017-08-28 02:39:40 UTC  

We're working on some better concoctions to deal with injuries from bear mace, acid, and bleach.

2017-08-28 02:40:57 UTC  

Our own ambulance service would be a good idea too, with a truck/van waiting to medevac someone to the nearest hospital.

2017-08-28 09:31:07 UTC  

Would save our guys a good bit of cash too

2017-08-28 18:35:50 UTC  

From a logistics perspective if doing a big event like cville I agree Wiley.

2017-08-28 19:45:25 UTC  

@Erika can you have someone post your mace remedy in the medic lessons thread?

2017-08-28 19:54:08 UTC  

@Deleted User I'll write it up tonight and send it to whoever has the ability to post in that channel.

2017-08-28 20:03:06 UTC  

I need that dmed to me also if you can thanks! @Erika
