Hello, everyone! I've been in and out of the NerdFitness arena for a few months now. I'm a nursing student and have had a lot of trouble keeping motivated, finding time, and just keeping my sanity in general. I just recently have found my inspiration and motivation to forge ahead. I was excited to come across this forum so I could connect, support, and compete with my fellow rebels. I look forward to getting to know and working with you guys! -Neeko
Hey there! Newbie here, about to start a postgraduate in nursing AND her first fitness challenge. Whoot! The problem is I'm a little worried. Earlier in the year, when I was a nursing assistant, I tried to do the fitness regimen I had in university in addition to my job (12hr shifts, yeesh!) and got Plantar Fasciitis, which is not fun at all. I'm worried that it'll come back with this course, especially when I'm on placements and I'll be mimicking the shifts that I did as an assistant. I've already got the right footwear, but I was planning on just... trying exercises and hoping I wouldn't need to amputate! Does anyone have any tips for a good workout that one could do between 12hr shifts that won't kill my foot (or any of my other tendons)?
