The rain is back

Yesterday I declared that I was going to do all my runs outside the rest of the week and then the rain came back. The 5 day forecast calls for Rain, Rain, Showers, Showers oh and a little more rain. I hate running in the rain, hate, hate, hate it, but I will do it. I know that I need to do it so I will just have to run it out.
Yesterday I completed my 10 miles and I have 2 more runs planned this week both 6 miles. I may try to get a 2-3 mile run in there also just to keep my legs moving. Besides that I want to do some yoga or the XStretch DVD - I feel like my body just needs it.

This morning was rough getting up, I went to bed about 9:30 last night and when the alarm went off I wanted to stay in bed. The inside of both my ankles are hurting. The left one for an unknown reason, maybe my shoes and the right one since I rolled it yesterday.  I was already thinking my shoes were not providing enough support in the arches for the longer distance.  I have had them for a while, but I have only put about 160 miles on them with running, but I think with my weight they are just breaking down sooner. They still look in great shape, but I can tell they are losing their support.  Tine to look for some new shoes.


  1. Good call on the shoes. They make SUCH a difference.

  2. I'm in the same boat with shoes! I'm overweight and put a lot less "running" miles on them, but I made the mistake of using them as my everyday work shoes too. I bought a new pair that I'm only using for running and still using my old ones for every day. Wish I had known to do that before now!
