OMG. Shin splints. What a bitch!
So, my new Brooks Dyads had me hobbling home after my one mile run. SHIN SPLINTS. Oy. I kind of forgot about shin splints. How I forgot about shin splints, I don’t know, but they are a beast.
Despite being a state of agonizing, foul language inducing pain, I’m happy to have a new pair of running shoes. My last pair were in the process of bitting the dust. I ended up going with what I had before, just a half size smaller. Apparently, my foot shrank and my arch got higher.
I also got four pairs of knee high moisture wicking socks, all of which are wonderfully colorful. Today’s pair are probably the most subdued. It was very tempting to pick up a purple glitter Sweaty Band, but I was dropping enough money for one day. Even with my husband’s discount (I love him working at a running shoe store!!), it was a chunk of change. The Sweaty Band can wait until the next pay cycle.
