Memories of Running

The last time I went on a run I could barely walk for days after. My right foot hurts. A lot. And I pretty much have a high threshold for pain.

Friends told me it was probably the shoes I wore. Our company doctor told me the same thing. I wasn't totally convinced. She didn't even try to examine where the pain was.


So I did what Scud would usually do. I bought new shoes. A Nike pair designed for running.

I used it on a trial run just hours ago. For the first few minutes it felt great on the feet. But minutes after my foot started to hurt. The right foot. My friends were wrong. The doctor was too.

Time to finally put my HMO card to good use and have my foot checked by an orthopedic doctor. Wish me luck!

new shoes supposed to hurt a little when you first use it, right?

anyway, hope you'll be okay.

Baka you were not meant to run talaga, hehe. Walking na lang muna. :)

Maybe you pulled a muscle or had a minor sprain. Try a hot compress on your foot, it might help.

Huuu! Binigyan mo lang ang sarili mo ng dahilan para makabili ng bagong sapatos! Para hindi ka maguilty!

heheh joke lang!

for women, the rule about new pairs of heel is you don't wear them for a big occasion. (i break them in at home for a few hours a day). same goes for running shoes. walk around in them for a few days before taking them out for a run.

but yes, it's good to have those feet checked. you might have injured them without knowing it.

have fun running!

engel, my feet don't hurt no more. painkiller lang ang sagot.
