I've been hitting the treadmill pretty hard for me as of late. This is mainly due to the 7lbs (+/-) I gained since vacation in August. I use that reference since after vacation, I may have went to the gym, which is only 3 minutes from my house, 3 times! When I finally returned to the gym, along with the hoards of humanity on January 1st, I find the best personal trainer I have ever had has left! Buh bye, barbell barbie :( She was the fourth trainer I have worked with so you think I could, I don't know, work out on my own by now, but I'm not really a self motivator. Oh using 12lb weights are just fine, forever! There's no need to increase!
Anyway, back to the treadmill....I have probably ran about 17 miles in the last 2 weeks. One of my little toes began to hurt and later turned blue! I contacted the organizer of the running group I joined on facebook, (but have yet to actually run with) which is affiliated with the local running store, Johns Run/Walk. Shocker! He said I probably need new running shoes! ThaKing made fun of me when I immediately ran out and bought those new Nikes! He will rue making fun of me when I leave him in my dust in this year's Shamrock Shuffle! That's right... rue!
