Took me about an hour to run to the builder's supply stuff an 8' stud and an 8' pressure treated 4x4 in the FJ and run home and throw this together. I even took the time to drill pilot holes and screw everything together with 3" grabbers.
After 5-10 minutes of popping on and off ollieing and popping on/180'ing off I think I'm going to die. My calves and feet are burning and I'm sucking wind like an old man...
The legs and my shitty cardio I understand. But the burning feet concern me. It was along the outside edge of my arch. I'm thinking this is caused my a lack of support from the insole? I don't want to be on the mountain for 30 minutes and have my feet hurting so bad I wanna bail. Guess it's time for new insoles? Anything good off the shelf? Am I overreacting? Should I find a place that does custom insoles? I've heard of local shops doing heat forming of insoles. Not sure if either of my 2 locals in Terrace do or not. Should I go see an podiatrist? Not sure if I wanna shell out the dough for custom orthotics and in Canada (especially remote Northern BC) that could take forever. The season could be half over before I ever got in.
I can so relate, I got winded fast when I 1st started on this.
Don't forget as well your popping and slamming all your weight on to that beam. When you are riding the forces you will be applying are different and may not cause this type of pain in a real world situation.
