This week's runs ended with me experiencing my first shin splints.
Not fun, but I figured I'd just get through it.
My mom, dad, and sister came into town on Wednesday night and we went to Washington Square Thursday.
I had planned on finding some new t-shirts, but looked at the prices and thought to myself, "I can find that at the bins for .60", and didn't end up getting anything I could find there.
I think my old way of shopping has been ruined.
Anyway, while at the mall, I was limping all over the place from my splints.
We got into the Dick's Sporting Goods store to find something for my dad's knee, when I spotted these:
They're called "Sport Recovery Shoes"
And, let me tell you, they work!
The bottom is memory foam and they are so comfy.
The moment I tried them on, my shins felt better!
I think I'll go back and buy another pair.
Officially my new favorite pair of shoes.
Thanks, Mom & Dad!!!
I also found a "cure" for my running rash I get on my thighs!
Maybe a bit too much information for some of you, but, sadly, my thighs rub together no matter what I do or how tiny I am.
Now that I'm not exactly skinny anymore, it's worse, so I definitely need this cure.
It's a pair of spandex Nike Pro shorts that go low enough to keep the friction to a minimum.
My thighs are in heaven.
Sporting goods stores think of everything.
