Need a new pair of shoes.


Wednesday, October 10, 2012

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.

    Love the ambition for kayaking after work! I imagine it's a great workout for your upper body. I wish you lived somewhere were you could kayak all year!

Good luck!
