Procured a new pair of Nike running shoes yesterday from the local Sports Authority store. They weight about half of what my old shoes did. The last time I had purchased running shoes it was technically a different century. The old ones pretty much had only been used during sporadic lawn mowing sessions. Our last yard was pretty small. I could now it with a push mower in about 15 minutes.
At the time of the purchase the Sports Authority store was pretty empty. A nice college age employee told me all about the different shoes. Apparently, that particular employee really liked the new Nike Free running shoes and the arch support insoles. Before I went to the store after work my coworkers told me not to get the insoles, but it seemed like a good idea.
This morning after warming up and wearing the new shoes the plan seems to be achieving the desired effect. No shin splints today. That’s pretty awesome in my book. After a month of working out it appears I need to better manage my exercise routine.
