Going shopping in your favourite running stores is sure to cheer you up when you get injured! Well, it did for me - here I am guilty as charged:
It has started to get cold around these parts, so a new pink Adidas t-shirt and black Nike capris were needed. And I picked up a couple more pairs of Experia socks as I have been loving the turquoise pair I bought recently.
I bought a SPI belt because I think it is really handy, and chose the reflective version as sometimes I have to run after work and it starts to get dark by the time I get home. I also splashed out on some pink 2XU compression socks, and some dumbbells because I thought
I have been trying on shoes for a while as my others really need replacing and are probably the cause of my injury in the first place. Shoe Clinic kept steering me into Mizuno Wave Riders so I finally stopped procrastinating and bought them too:
They are very comfortable, and I like the way the sole at the heel tapers - I always felt this part stuck out too much on my Supernova's. I've heard a lot of comments from runners who love their Wave Riders too.
So there we go - a bit of retail therapy to supplement the physiotherapy. Now all I need is my IT band to get better so I can use them!
