New shoes seem to make a difference!! Yesh!!
Sunday, May 06, 2007
So I had done some research on the web and found that the best shoes for me would be those MBTs that cost around $250/pair. That kind of price is out of the range I can afford so I found the next best shoes. I found an article on about.com that listed the 5 best shoes for overpronators. (It is my overpronation that has led to my miserable case of plantar fasciitis so if I can resolve the overpronation, I should, theoretically speaking, solve my problems, right?) So I was a good Spark shopper and bought 2 pairs on the list from Zappos, a Spark sponsor for $95 each, shipping included. They arrived Friday evening, one day after I ordered them but UPS brought them after we had already left for the race at Richmond. Sure would have been nice to have had them before, but oh well! So yesterday, I wore the shoes all day that were designed for the more severe overpronator (Saucony Grid Stabil) and worked out in the shoes designed for the less severe (Brooks Addiction 6). When I woke up this morning, my feet felt a whole lot better!! Well, I guess that answers what are xhastedmomof2's feet wearing today!!!
Otherwise, I feel kind of bad for my hunny but he is the rabid race fan and I guess he is enjoying himself? I am referring to the Nextel cup in Richmond today. My hunny, son, daughter, and her boyfriend went to the race yesterday only to come home after midnight and leave this morning before 8 am to go back for the rain-soaked rescheduled race. The reason I feel bad for my hunny is that he seems to be coming down with a cold. So where is he today?? Not in bed, that’s for sure!
