Got fitted for orthotics last week. I’ll pick them up next week, but thought you might be interested in what my feet look like in the special molds that they use to craft the orthotics (yeah, sure we are, you bore). I also bought some new shoes.
Contrary to conventional wisdom, the pedorthic guy (that’s what they call the person who builds them) says you should buy your new shoes before you get the orthotics fitted for the shoes. So I bought some Saucony ProGrid Stabils.
These are a sweet ride. They are lighter than the Mizuno Renegades and the Brooks Beasts. Both of which I can still run in but in low miles. I’ve run in them twice and they feel better each time.
I’m in my last week of 3- and 4-mile recovery runs before training for the Nashville Half marathon. It has been hard to get motivated without a plan. I suspected as much–without some goal to work for, I feel lost and aimless. But it does feel good to run again.
