Monday: Planned 6 miles. Decided since monday was a holiday that I didn't have to get up at the butt crack of dawn and run. Even at 7:30 the humidity was still 95%. Bleh. Robin joined me and honestly, we had to do some walking even though the temps were low. Doesn't matter, we got it done. 6 miles wearing blue and remembering those who have fallen defending this great country we live in!
Tuesday: Planned Strength and Dr. Needles visit #3. I was very adamant that I did not want any needling done. I feel bad because I think he was pretty excited to poke my foot again, and even had a student observing, but I just couldn't handle another session, especially without my "support staff "as he called them. He was able to get a similar response by digging in his fingers as hard has he could, so there is that. I am sure the needles are way more efficient, but even as I type this, I get super nauseous just thinking about the pain. I have read that most patients opt to have a numbing solution injected first for procedures in the foot, but I am not sure that he can do that since he is a chiro and not an MD. I had another ultrasound treatment and some manual manipulation, which was pretty painful in itself. Maybe I am just a big baby, but I digress. He was not pleased with the shoe I brought him. If you remember back, he had done a ton of research at our local running shoe store and found a shoe that he really wanted me to try. My local running store didn't have the shoe he wanted in women's, but they had another version (New Balance 870s), but it wasn't up to snuff in his opinion. I was able to order the shoe he wanted me to have and in a wide version, which is what I suddenly need. I can't wait to get them and try them out! I did have to order a 6.5, which is what i have worn for years, but recently haven't been. I have been in anywhere from a 7-7.5, but the running store kiddos think that was because I needed a wide. It's kind of odd, because I have had many measurements lately at both my local running store and in San Diego, with varied results. Yesterday I measured a 6.5 wide, whereas I had been measuring a 7-7.5 regular. Who knows. At least I can send them back if I need to.
