I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! We certainly did! It was so great to just relax and enjoy time with family.
I was going to run the Jacksonville Bank Half Marathon on Sunday but I wanted to wait til the last minute to sign up to make sure I was feeling okay and I'm so glad I didn't. I ran on Tuesday and Thursday and my leg was killing me. I'm pretty sure that I've narrowed it down to the shoes. Last time I got fitted, they put me in stability shoes, even though I'd always worn guidance shoes. He assured me it was the right fit. It wasn't. Now my ankle is bothering me and I'm worried about a stress fracture in my upper shin. I got new shoes today, Asics 2002 2. I'm planning on walking around in them for the next 2 weeks but I'm not sure I'm going to run in them. I want to rest my leg as long as possible. I hope that's the right decision!
