My first day of work for this year started just right with a good feeling of enthusiasm and in the best of moods. Gone were the “oh, no, not again” feeling. The fact that the ground outside is a mixed of snow and ice haven’t restrained me from going up early. I knew it would be ice on the ground after the fall and rise of the temperature these past days so I asked hubby to buy me shoe ice-spikes, which I haven’t any idea what they are, how they look like and how they’re used. I’ve just read about it in the newspaper and how they could hold a good grip on an icy ground and would keep one from gliding or falling off. I thought I needed those kind of things. And just as I expected, the ground looked like this when I went my way to the bus stop.
It was my first time to wear ice-spikes this morning and it wasn’t comfy at all. But my boots had a good grip on ice everytime I stepped on it. Somehow, it gave me a feeling of confidence not to fall off. Slipping and falling incidents made the orthopaedics busy and full at this time of the year, that’s why I was precautious to have ice-spikes.
It’s not comfortable to walk with them on floors, I don’t think it’s allowed so I took them off at work.

I wonder if they will also allow this one at soccer games/field soon. LOL. Kidding.
Hahaa, I don’t think so…the spikes would be a hindrance to run.
Nagsusuot din ako nang spike noong tumatakbo pa ako. Malaking bagay kc ang spikes para hindi ka madulas sa pagtakbo lalo na sa laban… pero ang spikes pang yelo… hindi ko pa nasuot… wait ko pa mag snow sa pinas.
Iba naman ito kasi matutulis ang nasa ilalim para mahigpit ang kapit sa ice. 🙂
