The last few days has been filled with leg pain. It hasn’t been severe but it’s enough to take a break from running. Hence, the lack of new postings.
On Friday night I went for a run on the t-mill and I had pain all up both of my shins, my ankles, and my knees. I had to come home and rest them with heat and ice. It was not fun. I don’t have a lot of pain when they are resting but every now and then they get a little sore.
So, I was really on a mission for a new pair of shoes during my forced rest days. I really wanted to get the New Balance 860’s because I loved my 760’s so much and everyone loves an upgrade! So, off to the New Balance store I went. When I got there to see the 860’s in green, pink, and blue I was so excited to have options! But it turned out none of them were a size 5! Wah! And none of the New Balance stores in TO had a size 5 and I would have to get them specially ordered! Waaaaaaah! Just my luck. I ended up having 2 options for new shoes. This was one of them:
You can tell by my attractive face that I was not impressed. I can’t even remember the style number of them. They were SO heavy and five year old boy coloured. Needless to say, they got put right back into their box. I want a sassy fun, and lightweight size 5! Is that so much to ask for?! When the next box came they ended up being a size 5 1/2. I put them on, took a test jog around the store and they won my heart.
Which style did I choose?! You will have to read about it tomorrow when I test them out at boot camp tonight! Muahahahah! Hopefully they heal my knee pain!
For now you read about the playlist I used on my 8K the other night that hurt my legs quite a bit. Whoops!
