I've been trying to go on a run all week, but have failed miserably. I keep telling myself that I will go for just one mile after work at least one day, but I never made it. I think I need to take my running clothes to work and change into them before I get home so I have no excuses!
Today I managed to drag myself out for a long-ish run on the bike path. I was uninspired to run by myself, and not thrilled about venturing into the woods alone given all the bears around. I figured I would stick to somewhere that I knew there would be people.
I felt really good for the first couple of miles, then I got tired and it started to suck. I've been having some shin pain (the souce of which is my super collapsing right arch), so I have been running in an older pair of more supportive shoes (I'm so sad, I love my Brook's Cascadias and my NB Minimus...but apparently they do not love me). The shoes made my shins hurt less, but my ankles and feet hurt more.
