That’s what I get for upping my cardio drastically (not gradually) and wearing old shoes. I won’t even tell you how old my shoes are. They were still comfortable, but appears they were not doing the job. So, I got new shoes today (see pic below) and even though I think they’re ugly, BOY ARE THEY COMFY!!! They have a wide base so they help to stabilize my supination (maybe?) from my extremely high arch. They are the Brooks Glycerin 8.
I usually wear Lynco L400 arch supports (and have some still) but decided (at the recommendation from the guy at Sports Spectrum) to wait and see if I like the shoes without rather than preemptivley buying $52 inserts if I don’t need them in these shoes. We’ll see….I think I’ll go back for a new pair!
I’m icing my shins after my workouts now. I’m going to try the fibula (maybe?) exerciser at the gym also. We’ll see how I feel this time next week.
Oh, and I’m caving and taking my RX motrin that I was given for my wrist and my back. I hate taking meds but Nikki’s right…I need to take them so I am. (They still hurt though, even with the meds…..I’m limping they hurt so bad.)
