Big news today, people…
I’ve been cleared to RUN again!
Short distances, very slowly, but still…a huge victory for me today!
My physical therapist did some tests, observed my form, had me do lots of silly movements, gave me some tips, and now I can proudly say she believes I should move forward in my training. I am beyond thrilled that my injury isn’t worse than it is.
SO, here goes! You all know I ran five glorious minutes yesterday. Yes that says “minutes”, not miles.
Today, I did some back and forth jogging at my PT appointment, as well as a couple intervals of walking/jogging on the treadmill. That only lasted about ten minutes; I was a little sore from a sports massage and didn’t want to push it.
Apparently, I have feet that a “shoe manufacturer dreams of” because they are a very typical width and neutral arch. I’m overly normal. Or something. I do get blisters on my toes often, which leads me to believe that I need a shoe with a slightly bigger toe box. My lovely physical therapist also gave me a list of shoes she thinks would fit me well:
I’m pretty sure I tried the Asics Cumulus shoes on once but they didn’t work for me. I’m intrigued by the others though.
Has anyone tried any of these shoes? What’s a good shoe with a wider toe box? I’m sick of blisters!
