A whole lot it seems. I have been working at T for about 3 months and have been wearing my new balance athletic shoes. All has been fine. The first day or two I was a little sore for um being out of shape and just general working hard, but today.
ah today. I worked my normal shift in the WAY TO EARLY FOR HUMANS TO BE MOVING hours and then was scheduled to take a shift for someone coming back at 4pm. I was asked at the last minute to switch that and stay until 2 on the register.
About 12 I realized I had stretched my back about 10 times and could not seem to get comfortable. Standing. Those don't seem to fit in the same sentence... I stand on a mat but its not at all helping. At 145, I left my register and hobbled up the stairs to clock out wondering if I wasn't better off doing flow and truck unload. At least there I know what my pain is from, but since I have turned in my water bottle note which states I have a 20lb weight lifting limit (um my kid is 30...) there is no going back.
So off to find new shoes. I would prefer not to spend $100 (since I don't have an extra $100) but want something that I can be in for 8+ hours straight and not feel my whole body groan when I move. I know I am pregnant so that is a tall order but if you have a recommendation please fess up now!
