Once upon a time, I used to run. And please understand that when I say "run" I mean "jog". It's just that running sounds so much more athletic to me than jogging. Especially the kind of jogging I do. It's more like bouncy walking.
At some point, after Wiggle Man was born, I did something awful to my feet. Perhaps all those workout tapes I did barefoot had something to do with it. Whatever the cause, I found myself unable to run without severe pain in my feet, shooting all the way up my shins and calves.
And I missed running. Ten Minute Trainer--you are my friend, but you're no substitute for getting out of the house and just running.
I tried new shoes. I tried inserts in the new shoes. I tried the inserts in the old shoes. And then I gave up.
But in the past few weeks, I've noticed that when playing softball, my feet didn't hurt when I ran. Hmm. So, I worked up the courage, and very, very slowly started jogging down the street.
No pain. No agony. Just...running.
So, hello old friends. I've missed you.
