What Being Injured Is Giving Me

I have to say that one thing being injured can give you is a lot of time to think. Sometimes this is a good thing - sometimes not so much. This year has been a tough one for me when it comes to injuries. The 5 month and counting hip injury really put a damper on my fitness goals this year. Then I got staph as soon as I was cleared to run. That set me back. Then the hip got super angry again, and now this (When Life Throws You A Curveball)

It's July ya'll, and I have only had a few weeks here and there this year of running consistently. It's been my worst year to date to deal with such issues. And mentally I was finally ready to run races. I had registered for both the Harrisburg and Hershey half this year. Well, we all know that's not going to happen. I'm still hobbling around in a boot. Thankfully, I was able to transfer those bibs through the registration system.

#TuesdayTidbit - Screw Shoes

Welcome to my first edition of #TuesdayTidbit. Each Tuesday, I plan to have a little #TuesdayTidbit to pass along to you. Today's #TuesdayTibit is screw shoes.

No I haven't personally tried this, but I have friends who tried it last year, and they said it totally works. I do know that I was slipping and sliding, and their footing was definitely more secure. What am I talking about? Well it's the screw shoe.

And I plan to make my very own pair this year (with Hubby's help). For easy step by step instructions check out this page from skyrunner.com. Pretty much, I think all you need is a drill, some screws and some shoes :) 

Do you run/walk outside in slippery conditions? Do you use screw shoes or something similar?

  2. I've heard of these as an alternative to yaktrax. I'll need to try out something if I plan to run through the wintery conditions this year!

    1. I love running in the snow, but I don't like black ice or slipping! :) I'm not sure about outside just yet this year either with my injury. But I'll give these a try if I do.
