185. New running shoes

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.

  1. Sounds like your feet didn’t shrink… Shoes that are too small will give you the results you’re experience. I know, I ran through that for a year. It hurts. Good luck.
