How do I relieve my aching feet?
As a racewalker my feet take a light but steady pounding—especially during events over 5K. How might I best relieve the resulting soreness? I’ve heard that I should soak my feet at night in hot water; I’ve heard that I should soak my feet at night in cold water. Some say both. What about topical anti-inflammatory ointments? I’m 69 years old, 125 pounds, and 5’ 10”. I have flat feet and wear full-length orthotics.
