Woohoo I got new running shoes for my birthday yesterday! I went to the Running Room and actually got fitted for them :o) Very odd, I always thought i had weak ankles and needed extra support that way but apparently I actually walk on the outside of my feet especially my right foot. It was weird to feel the middle of my shoes only on that foot lol.
Took my new shoes running on the treadmill then outside yesterday. I must say I really like them, I just need to be careful how tight I tie them. On the treadmill run the top of my foot hurt, then the ball of my foot and some toes starting going numb lol. The run outside went much better - no problems that way with my shoes loosened. Here's hoping this cures my knee problems!
On Saturday I am doing the 3k Walk for Valour Place in Edmonton. Valour Place is a home away from home for injured soldiers, veterans, RCMP and their families while they are in Edmonton to get medical treatment. I have raised $325 so far! My 12 year old son is doing it with me - I'm impressed he wants to :o)
