I have had a stop/start experience with C25K because I have had a lot of foot and ankle problems and niggles: plantar fasciitis, tight, niggling achilles. I am ok at the moment and about to begin week 7 but can feel some tightness in my right achilles. I really want to complete the programme this time and so stave off any injuries. I feel that I have had more problems since getting some new sneakers last September. I got them from a specialist running store here in the USA and they are the same brand as before: Brooks stability, but 1/2 size larger and a wide fitting. Although I am wide across the toe area (bunions) I have narrow heels and feel as though I have to tie them very tight so they don't slip. I am thinking of going to a running shop in the UK when I am back in a few weeks to see what shoe they recommend. In the meantime any advice on exercises I could do would be very gratefully received. Sorry for the long explanation/question. Many thanks, Beth
