New shoes needed
My knee started hurting again on my run last night. I’m pretty annoyed, because last time it took well over a month to get back to normal. This has made me decide to make running shoes and a strapless bra my top priorities for clothes in August. Running shoes are first.
I found a site that suggested lighter runners can use their shoes for up to 400 miles. I don’t keep a log (yet) but I doubt I’ve ran that far since I got them. Still, I didn’t buy them from a running shop and I’m not sure of the fit. When I bought them, I honestly wasn’t sure how much I’d enjoy running, so I didn’t buy the high end (nor did I buy the really cheap ones). I want to go to a real running shop, have them look at my stride, and see if I’m doing something wrong that causes pain. I found one not too far from my apartment.
In the mean time, I might see if I can get an icepack to try to speed up the healing process. I don’t want to go to the doctor unless I have to, and I feel like the pain is minor so I’ll see how it plays out. [Any thoughts from people with more running experience than me?]
