Hello again! Posting two days in a row may be a record for me recently. Maybe it’s a sign that things are finally settling down after a crazy spring/early summer?! Well they are a little bit for now, but not for long, so I might as well take advantage of having a few minutes to think out loud!
Lately I have been thinking alot about shoes. And injuries. And feet. (No surprise there!) I am excited but nervous to say that my foot has responded very well to the little bit of running I started adding in. I have also been trying to figure out which shoes feel the best for work. On Tuesday I wore these black flats that happen to be Dr. Scholls. Pros: The are flat, with a little support and cushioning. Cons: The toes are tight and I would rather be wearing sandals in the summer.
New con that I discovered as I was wearing them: Apparently they cause a blister on my heel. I never had this problem before but I don’t think I usually wear them in the summer so I’m sure my feet are more swollen.
The fact that the air conditioning in my office wasn’t working didn’t help matters. Out in the hallway it was cool, the other floors of the building were cool, just the section I work in was hot. I’m in the basement, so this didn’t make sense at all. Hopefully the problem gets fixed soon or it’s gonna be a long, sweaty summer!
Ok, so back to feet. I went to see a PT on Monday. Even though my foot was feeling better I still wanted to get to the root cause of the problem. We have a theory, so now we wait and see how I progress. She taped me up, and don’t even ask why I have tape on my right foot. This is a part of the theory but I’ll need to figure out how to articulate it in a way that makes sense because it’s still kind of confusing to me!
Ever since I bought new running shoes last month I haven’t been able to stop thinking about the Saucony Kinvara’s. I like the Brooks Launch (that I bought last month) but they have more of a drop than what I am used to. Both shoes have a wide toe box, but I think as I start running again more regularly I will feel better in the 4mm drop which is what I am used to. I think I will be able to wear both, but I couldn’t turn down the great deal on Running Warehouse. With the coupon code FB15D they were only $41!!
How in the world did I mange to break my nail like this? The broken part is so low, and it catches on stuff. I guess that’s what happens when I try to not get my nails done? Seeing this picture makes me want to go get a manicure right this second.
One more thing for today. I was driving down a street in my neighborhood yesterday afternoon and saw this little family of deer walking across the road. The baby deer were moving SO slowly but luckily all the cars nearby saw them and stopped. It was definitely strange to see at that time of day!
If you work in an office, what shoes do you wear to work?
Ever break a nail in a strange way?
Do you have deer or other animals living near you?
P.S. I have been noticing when I have been commenting on other blogs lately that some of my comments seem to be disappearing (I am assuming they are going to spam). There have also been some issues with my comment replies too I believe. I’ll try to figure out what’s going on this weekend but please check your spam folders for both comments and E-mail replies!
