I haven't been at my best for the last week or so, but somehow I still managed to loose 1.2 pounds on my weigh-in this week. Mostly, it's just busy family life making exercising harder to squeeze in, but birthday parties on the weekend had led to me being really, really bad. I was quite surprised to see a lower number on the scale this morning, in fact, I had almost decided to skip the weigh-in until next week!
Back on the treadmill tonight though, Couch to 5k, Week 3. I had to change the second
three minute run to two 90 second runs as my ankle was hurting. It was still the
same amount of time though, but I will repeat day one next time.
So here's what I need. . .I need advice on runners. I
under pronate when I'm running. This causes pain on the outside (smaller area)
of the foot and leads to ankle pain. I have tried several different runners and
just when I thought I found the best one's, the pain is back! So if you have
been (or are) overweight and have started or are well into a running program
yourself, have you found a truly comfy pair of shoes? I'm especially interested
in other people who have problems with underpronation.
I have ordered a pair of Sof Sole Stable Trac Insoles. I do hope that these will do the trick. I found them recommended on Runner's World after I ordered them so I'm really hoping they solve my problem and maybe I can wear those new Nike's that had been hurting my feet. I have to wait for them to arrive in the mail though! Patience, they're coming from the U.S.
