I got my new orthodics on Monday, and tried them out yesterday. I only ran 2 miles in them. They just didn't feel right. They felt as if I was running in high heels, and it bothered the ankle & I felt a bit of shin splints.
Guess I will be talking to Dr. Foote, and getting them tweaked.
My 7 mile run was back to the old inserts. Better safe than sorry. I ran an out and back in Mercer County Park. It was downright balmy out, compared to the last week or so. The temps had to be in the mid 30's.
I had wanted to get a 10 miler in this week, in preparation for the Chilly Cheeks 7.2 mile trail run this Sunday. Well, I guess a long run of 7 will do.
I did a google search for the Chilly Cheeks run in Reading,Pa. and as much fun as it sounds, it's going to be tough. It seems to be rather hilly!
The shins were bothering me a bit, guess it was a byproduct of yesterday's run. I felt good, but can tell the drop off in the wind & legs at about 3 miles in. While I am faster, I need to gain back the endurance I have lost.
