FEELING THE PAIN
How do you know when its time for new running shoes? For me, its hip pain. Not the kind I've had with ITB, but pain during and after a run. It eases with stretching and icing, but its there, nagging at me day in and day out, a sure sign its time for new shoes. I've been to the chiro recently but haven't had a massage in a while. Still, I'm sure new shoes are needed.
Got that birthday gift card just in time, and this weekend will be scouting around for my favorite pair of shoes, Brooks Adrenaline.
I've been wearing these now for a few years and they seem to be a good choice for me. And the good news is they haven't changed much year to year. How much longer they'll make this shoe is anyone's guess. Hopefully I can find my size at the running store! It would be great if they were actually on sale too!
I doubt I will be able to wear them for my race this weekend or the Toronto half next weekend, but they certainly will make the runs in between more comfortable. It almost amazing how once I get a new pair of shoes, something that's bothering me goes away almost from the first run.
I'll be reporting on my success in finding the shoes and having pain free runs again!
