You asked for it...well, actually, you can thank JojaJogger for this one, 'cuz he asked for it!
Here is a fancy shmancy (no, not really) picture of my toes, three weeks post RDL...
These tootsies of mine are actually feeling even better now that I've gotten a couple of runs in. Weird, huh? I can only tell I have dead toenails when I point my toes all the way, then it's a funky 'stuck' sensation I get but totally painless.
Oh, and I got new shoes yesterday! I told myself I had to wait until I was running again before I would try on new shoes. Geof and I headed over to Running Away Multisport in Bucktown since they seem to have the biggest selection of road shoes in town, and I decided on the Asics Gel Nimbus 12s. They are a cushion lover's dream :) I've been looking for something with a little more room in the toe box, and while I'm not sure these are any wider, I definitely am digging the fit so far. My foot feels locked in place and the shoe feels very sock-like, it's that comfortable. The cushioning is beyond awesome...and I thought my Brooks Glycerins were the Queen of Cushion. Move over Glycerin, there's a new queen in town!
Now, I just need to get re-acclimated to my morning running...I am sufficiently beat after a spritely 3 mile run this morning! You'd think I did a long run with the way I've been zombie-ing around the office today :)
