So, I don't think I've really mentioned that I've been running pretty consistently. And it usually feels pretty good, until the end. And then, my feet start falling asleep, and my shins start KILLING me. I am wondering if I need new running shoes...I'm trying to remember when I bought the pair that I have, and I'm pretty sure it was when I was home over J term my freshman year of college...which would put me at Winter 2005. Wow. I didn't realize it had been that long! Does anybody know if old running shoes can cause shin splints or the feet falling asleep thing?
I just have such a hard time shelling out the money for new athletic shoes--it seems like they are all so expensive! I have been lusting over these Nike Shox, but I just can't bring myself to buy them. And they're online only...I wish that they had them in-store for me to try on! Plus, I'm not sure how much more running I'll be able to do until I replace these puppies.
Anyone have recommendations for a good moderately priced running shoe?
