So here is my Christmas present from hubby - lovely running shoes! This time last year when I was just a few weeks into C25k I thought about getting some proper running shoes but instead set myself a goal that if I was still running in January 2017 I would get a pair of new shoes in the sales. So I continued to run in a pair of shoes a friend had given me. ALL year I continued to run and was loving it. So today was the day that I realised my goal and was rewarded not only with a great feeling of achievement but also a rather lovely pair of shoes!
A gait analysis didn't show up any issues so I was advised to get a neutral shoe. I run on a variety of surfaces so opted for a trail shoe. I tried on three pairs but preferred these - Asics, Gel Fuji Attack 5 (I wonder how they come up with names for the shoes?!). They felt good on the treadmill at the shop and I love the colour! Looking forward to trying them out for real later in the week. Happy running everyone.
