I was running in old Puma shoes with Orthaheel sports insoles. It was after moving to new shoes without the insoles that I start poking the toe through socks and upper. Maybe it's to do with slightly flat feet and lacking the arch support. The Orthaheels didn't feel right in the new shoes but I'm going to try them again.
A gentle 4.1 miles done today, to heart rate. This is part of a cunning plan to pick up the mileage. I usually run three days a week but the idea is to insert short gentle runs on a couple of days in between. Today's was a bit longer, a route malfunction on my part, was intending to do about 3 miles. I used to run a steady 6 days a week but that was back then ... Maybe this will do as a halfway house to that, see how it goes.
