NEW SHOES TO THE RESCUE!

I have been thinking about eating all night!  I feel asleep thinking about eating a big salad a la Hungry Hungry Hippie and then actually dreamed I was eating one!  I clearly feel like I should be eating more veggies!

But not for breakfast!  I had oats with coconut milk, chia seeds, and almond butter with a side of grapetastic grapes!

I got some good advice yesterday about my achy joints after my long runs on twitter.  I was informed by Running Mastery that achy joints on long runs can come from too much mileage too quickly or worn out shoes.  I feel like I’ve done a pretty good job slowly upping my mileage BUT my shoes are old and busted — as in, I got them over a year ago and the inserts date back to the early part of the past decade!  Okay, so I hadn’t re-vamped my running shoes in a while.

Luckily, Kellen came home yesterday and said he had just gotten a brand new pair of soccer pants to tend goal in.  I quickly shot back, “I need new running shoes.”

“Well played,” he replied.

So today I’m off (hopefully) to John’s Run Walk Shop to procure a new pair of shoes and inserts.

I’ll let you know how it goes with updates later!

Happy (FAT) Tuesday (the most productive day of the week — look it up!  It’s a fact!)

    If your bones/joints still hurt after 2-3 of days w/ new shoes & inserts, please see an orthopedist (an MD who specializes in musculoskeletal systems, including feet, of the body). I went through the same thing in the 70s & early 80s & found that, after being evaluated by an orthopedist, I needed special orthotics made from molds of my feet. Those last almost 20 years until I wore them out. I wish I could remember that doctor’s name because he was absolutely wonderful…he performed surgery on one of my feet also after you were born. He was also a specialist for the athletes at UVA.

  2. I will! Hopefully the shoes will help — at least it’s not lingering pain — it’s always over after a nice long bath 🙂
