Lately, I’ve had lots of trouble with my aches and pains in my Achilles tendons. One of my coworkers told me about a store called Road Runner Sports, so last week I decided to go there. Road Runner Sports has this special test that they give you where they take information about how you stand and how you run. So I took the test and they basically told me that I don’t have enough arch support. So they made me some custom insoles ($79.99) and I bought some running shoes ($139.99). These shoes also have a stability section which will should help when doing balance exercises.
So far, it’s working out. I’ve used the insoles and shoes for a week and my Achilles tendons feel so much better than they use to. Normally, they would hurt for an hour or 2 after a workout. Especially if I do a lot of running. I will admit that I do still feel it a little while I’m running, but after the run is over, I barely feel any pain. I plan on trying a longer run next week to see if this is really fixed or not.
