The last pair of sneakers that I purchased are very high in the back, and rub the back of my ankle. This has caused an issue with my Achilles tendon. I walked this morning, but barely made it around the block with the dog (our block takes 30 minutes to walk around). So, today I was shopping for a new pair of walking/running shoes. I need to buy men's sneakers, because my feet are so wide. Years ago, I took a running program at our gym at work and found out that the women's sneakers I was buying weren't wide enough - it should be 2 fingers wide or less across the laces.
I found a pair that I think will work on both the roads and trails, so I'll impatiently wait for them to arrive. I also ordered some athletic socks, since the socks I buy locally are not thick enough.
Off to kayak for the last weekday for the year. It's getting dark too early for me to get to the lake after work.
