Yesterday I tweeted that I was going to my favorite kind of shopping – shopping for running gear! Despite a random bad experience yesterday, this is my favorite thing to do 🙂
I went to a local big name running store (which I am not naming because they didn’t let me take pictures) and went through the process of being fitted and assessed for the best type of shoe for me.
They checked my balance and watched me on a treadmill. The treadmill part of it took about 25 seconds, so I am not sure how much I trust that.
Based on the tests they suggest a stability shoe.
My first pair of running shoes were stability shoes, but I hurt my ankle while running and was told it was because there was too much support on the inside of my shoe and they caused my ankle to roll out. Since then I have been wearing neutral shoes without a problem. Kinda.
I got injured after the marathon in January. So now I’m hoping a shoe with a little more stability might help prevent my knee injury from reoccurring.
Post run I came back on a mission to make a smoothie. I finally unpacked my blender last night. It was great to be reunited 🙂
I have to go buy my books for school, have an appt with Evelyn Tribole and then find a couch today. Oh, I didn’t mention I was going back to school yet? I’ll explain later…
