During the past couple of weeks, I have been uncomfortable. My right knee has been causing me pain and my right calf has been very tight.
Just like a trainer, I have stretched the hip and the calf most days of the week to alleviate the pain — with little to no success.
Since today was such a pretty day, I decided to risk the hip and go for a run. (Sounds disastrous, I know!)
To get ready for my run, I changed into my running shoes and walked about 50 yards to the corner. By the time I reached the corner, I realized that my hip and knee no longer hurt.
That is when it dawned on me: I have been working out in my street shoes all week. Apparently the shoes have been the cause of my discomfort.
Chris always speaks of the importance of a good running shoe. It's not that I didn't believe her, but I always thought as them as just that: running shoes.
We are going to have a burial for the street shoes. I just hope the EPA doesn't find where I buried them (although the dead foliage within a 100-foot radius may be a give-away).
