Yep, I took a photo of my shoes for Wide-angle Wednesday. They totally deserve a whole blog post b/c I'm running and with no heel pain!!!! I suspected that my minimal Brooks Pure Flows were aggravating my heel bursitis/achilles area and decided to go back to typical 10mm drop trainers. I chose Brooks Ghost 2 based on a bunch of research and reviews. I had gone to the minimals to alleviate Plantar Fasciitis, so I was nervous (and still am a bit) about this switch, but I wanted to make sure that my heel/achilles issue was able to heal properly while still being able to run. I'm a bit sad to not run in my Pure Flows, I really love them, but I've run twice in the Ghosts now with no pain and they feel great! I'm still keeping my mileage low because I can feel a tiny twinge in my heel sometimes when I'm not running and want to make sure I allow it to heal completely before my mileage starts going up for half training.
In other news, today is 149 days until we leave for the PHM trip and the girls made a countdown chain yesterday. It was fun, I added my long runs on it. Even though 149 days does not sound like a lot, it looks like a lot more when it's in paper chain form!
How's your week going? Have you ever had to change shoes because you felt your shoe was causing an injury?
