I didn’t run as many miles this past week because I have midterms coming up, but I am still working out regularly. I am encountering a problem though. I am getting HUGE calluses on the sides of my big toes. Everything I have read on this says that I am wearing the wrong size shoe. This BLOWS because it’s not like I have a money tree in my back yard and can buy a brand new pair of running shoes when the ones I’m wearing now are only six months old.
The calluses only really hurt when I wear high heels, but I wear high heels ALL THE TIME! There is no way I am going to let running interfere with my shoe hobby. No. Way. Not to mention the calluses are making my feet look even more deformed than they already are (Chuckles has always been creeped out by my long toes)…so I need to get this fixed before summer comes. I would feel way too guilty getting a pedicure right now – nobody should have to touch my feet.
There is a place by Green Lake called Jock and Jill that I want to check out because they analyze you while you run to determine exactly what shoes you should be wearing, which is apparently what I need. Anyway, if I have any extra time in the next month or, for that matter, money just lying around just dying to be spent I’ll be heading to Jock and Jill to be told what shoes I should be wearing.
