Week19: Guess What ?! I was running with the wrong shoes all along!
Week 19 is not a right time to find that I was running with wrong shoes, but I was glad I found that out now. Due to the foot pain, I visited Running Revolutions in Campbell. RR takes video of the running on a treadmill and also has a touch sensitive mat to gauge your stress pattern. With the help of these, the coach fit me the right kind of shoes (neutral, size 10, 2E width) for me. I was running with stability, narrow, 10.5 shoes (meant for over-pronators). So far the new shoes are working good. But I will wait till my 20 miles to see if there is more cushion needed.
