jodipaige2004: I saw the foot dr yesterday about my orthotics. He made a small tweak and told me if I am feeling ok on Thursday, I can start running! I asked about what I should do for shoes and he told me that since the orthotic is designed to "fix" any issues, there isn't a need to get the expensive shoes. He said the cheaper Asics I got at Kohl's were fine since I was adjusting to them.

That being said, I have heard that now from two different doctors, but I still wonder if I "need" the "real" running shoes. I may still go by the running store to see if there is anything that just feels amazing. I do know I do not want to be in any type of stability shoe with the insole. That is part of what started some pain before. The running store said the insole and shoe were working against each other.

Good luck with your orthotics. Once you get adjusted to them (I was told 3 weeks for the first follow up), then try putting them in shoes. My biggest issue is the shoes get tighter with the orthotic in them, so shoe shoes get ruled out as soon as I slide my foot in.[/QUOTE]

So, when you say "adjust to them" do you mean in the current shoes I am wearing to run? Like run in them for a few weeks in my current stability shoes? My orthodics will just be for running, not everyday wear just to clarify. I am assuming I will just take my current shoes in when the orthodics come in as I don't have neutral shoes and am hesitant to go buy some without the orthodics to try in them. I would really just be buying blindly since I have no experience with neutral shoes. My dr had suggested trying them in the shoes I have and then moving to a neutral shoe if needed. This may be a stupid question but how do the orthodics stay in the shoe? Do you glue them or do they just slide in? I am wondering if I could take them to a running store and try them with a few different pairs of neutral shoes.

You've got a lot going on - the list is so not a priority! Some days just plain suck... but they pass.

Congratulations!

This is what I use:
Thanks for the roller info. I found a video at runner's world during my lunch break and finally I am starting to understand what everyone is talking about

I threw in the towel and came home early from work today...feeling so crummy! Too many set backs in the last month...this does not bode well for Tinker Bell and Princess . I've missed too many long runs and I can't imagine how I'll get through 9 this weekend! It's looking more and more like ill run Tink 'for fun' like I planned to do Princess.

Maybe I'll just try for 5 if I'm feeling up to it this weekend...I'll have 9 scheduled the following weekend again anyway so hopefully I can make one of them work.

Sorry you are feeling so bad. Hopefully this weekend will be better for you. Remember some of us haven't been sure we would be able to avoid the balloon ladies till you encouraged us. You'll be fine.

I've got the ick too. And also changing my game plan on Tink. That one may be a "training run" for princess and princess for time. The opposite of what I planned! Did my long run last week so I'm very glad I can recover a bit this week.

Feel better soon!!!

I wondered why I wasn't getting any updates for the thread..Ha, now I know!!

So, I haven't booked my ticket for Florida yet because I cannot find airfare for less than $500!! (Flying from Phoenix.) I'm really nervous about paying that much money for a ticket. But I don't want to miss out on running this race. Any tips for me to just bite the bullet and book the flight?

Try the Bing flight predictor and see what it says.

I'd never heard of that before, thank you! It tells me to wait but it doesn't say how long to wait. Guess I'll keep checking SW every day.

If only it could predict the future that well! I've had success following it in the past, especially for tickets around holiday times. I've been curious and checked again even after buying tickets, and the only time they got cheaper were by about $2.

We finally booked ours today. Fortunately one of the flights we wanted came available for purchase with miles so we only had to pay out of pocket for one. The one was still pricey though...$330. The good old days of $200 fare to Orlando for me are gone...so sad...it wasn't that long ago! I hope you can find a good deal soon!

I was also going to recommend bing.com. You can check back every so often if the prices fluctuate but unfortunately 500 sounds about right . I'm flying from Tucson, but I used credit card points for my ticket. I think it was like 573? Best of luck to you, fellow desert princess!
