Happy Feet and 5at5 Day 4
I purchased some quality sport shoes today. There's a small shop about a mile down the road from us called 26.2 Running Company. I am so happy I went. They video taped my running and analyzed how and where I plant my feet and at what angle. From that they know how much support is needed and where. They also know a lot about plantar fasciitis.
Feet feel great.
Did you know we shouldn't wear our training shoes all day? we should put them on just before we work out to maximize the benefit and protection our shoes give us. The cushioning system/padding gets compressed from our weight over time and needs a decompressing period.
I stayed up way too late again last night. I started getting up this morning and felt horrible. I rationalized that there are two 5:00's in a day, so I'll just take the later one and went back to bed. (I know...)
I also wanted to wait and get my new shoes.
