Old Soles

I picked up some inserts for my shoes. They will have to do until I can afford to get a decent pair of running shoes. I ran with them the other day, but they made my feet feel like they were constantly being pushed out of my shoes.

They were a bit uncomfortable, but I figured it was just me having to get used to them. They definitely made a difference. My shins still hurt, but nothing like they had on previous runs.

It was suggested to me to take out the old soles before putting the new ones in. I feel like a fucking idiot for not thinking of that myself.

I’ll be giving them another try (propertly) tonight.

There is definitely something wrong with me

This morning I skipped my run and just did regular strength training. It’s me getting back into it so I wasn’t expecting too much. I also have this weird strain in my chest. Even with light weights on the bar it feels like 1 strand of muscle is being pulled from the top of my left pec. I guess for now, I’ll just make sure I’m properly stretched and take it easy on the weight used.

That’s not the problem though. The problem is that I want to run. The problem with that is I have always hated running. Hated. It’s definitely throwing my brain for a loop. Stupid brain. Stupid legs.

Spreading it out

These shin splints are killing me. I think for a couple weeks I am going to run every other day and start back with weight training on the days in between. I don’t want to drop running entirely, and I’m afraid if I stop doing something for any amount of time it will be a pain in the ass to get back into it. So hopefully running ever other day for a couple weeks will help in healing these fuckers.

I was able to run for 3 miles this morning. I definitely do not want to lose my momentum.

Slowly getting back on my feet

I’ve been running jogging stumbling on a treadmill for the last 3 weeks. I initially built a desk that I can quickly strap to the top of the treadmill in the hopes of being able to walk my way through the day. Fuck that. I am not coordinated enough to walk and work on a laptop at the same time. I only had damn thing set to 3mph, but it just wasn’t working all that great. The treadmill I am using is over 10 years old, so I wonder if it’s not as cushioned as a newer one. It was nearly impossible to move the mouse via the trackpad with any sort of precision. I decided I would rather just try and jog.
