I went to the gym today which was tough because my husband works for little debbie snack cakes and their gym is only 3 dollars a week for a family membership, its a really great gym with a aerobics room a weightlifting area a track, treadmills and bikes and stuff then a walll ball area and a pool. well you have to check in at the reception desk and the first thing i see is a platter of free snack cakes!!! I was good and didn't get any but the whole time i'm working out its all i smell because the gym is connected to the plant and i could smell them cooking.....sooo tempting.

anyway about the shoes, I don't have good running shoes and I ran on the treadmill today my feet were hurting really bad when I got home so I took my shoes off to see why and I have a huge blister on the bottom of each foot!! So until I can get some good running shoes I think I will be sticking to yoga/pilates at home

shoes are VERY important...i have been so cheap i keep getting shoes from Ross or on sale and they end up feeling tight later...or my Ross sneakers when i do workouts it hurts my big toe on my right foot, why i don't know and it's always the same spot. Feels like there's a metal plate lol. I still need to buy some good shoes, i am 0 for 4

and I have no excuse either~

oh definitely, especially if you are going to be running... and if you run a lot you should be replacing your sneakers at least every 3 months (dont' quote me on that, it's been a few years since i've been out of the Army). Tonya or Teresa might know a more accurate time frame.

I don't think it's quite 3 months to replace shoes. It depends on how much mileage you put on them. I want to say it's every 6 months, but if you are high mileage sooner than that. Good socks make a difference with blisters too. You can also try foot powder. That helped me a lot with blisters, but good shoes definitely make a difference.

Good shoes and thick socks are definitely the key. My favorite are New Balance. If you go to an actual New Balance store they can scan your feet (for free) and tell you what inserts to get too that will make them better for your individual feet. I won't wear any other tennis shoes now. In my aerobics certification we were taught to change them every 3 months, but personally, I wear mine everywhere so I end up having to change them every month. It gets expensive, but it is so worth it to not have problems with my back, neck, hips, and knees, not even counting the blisters.

Do you have to use shoes when at home? I had not even thought to wear shoes and use my bike bare foot.

I won't workout without good shoes because I've had knee surgery twice, scoliosis, a broken ankle, a dislocated sacroiliac joint (in the hip), and two herniated discs in my upper back. Not to mention the arthritis from all those injuries. LOL I have to have good support whenever I do anything so I'm not in pain afterwards. That being said, a bike is non-impact, so it won't be as bad on the joints as say walking on a treadmill or doing aerobics. So, it really depends on what you are doing. If there is impact of the feet to the floor or other surface, wear good shoes. If there's no impact, you can get away with going barefoot.

I bought a pair of shoes that were a brand I had never worn before. After a day they were uncomfortable and didn't support me correctly. I ended up tearing my tendon two days later. Anytime I wear the wrong shoes I can feel the pressure on my tendon.

If you like New Balances you should visit these website that sell them a lot cheaper.

http://www.eastbay.com/

http://www.final-score.com/

We buy our shoes there. To begin with, because they had large sizes and DH wears a 16 wide. We got a pair for 20 once and found the same pair in the store for 80 a week later.

I like Brooks shoes a lot, but my current shoes are New Balance and I like them too.
