Soo I have only recently started c25k and have a few questions!
I am running on a treadmill just now but am fairly new to running of any sort? What do people find best-indoor or outdoor? Am I better mixing it up a bit from now or should I work up to running a decent distance before running outdoors?!?
2nd question- I have been just trying to work out what speed is best for me. Tend to do my walking at 6 or 6.5km/hr and running at 10km/hr but I decided to add couple of minutes to week 3/3 in preparation for next week but near end of run had to drop speed down to 9km/hr which is prob what i will stick to for week 4. I know it's just everyone's personal preference but was wondering what speed anyone who also uses treadmills runs at. Want to make sure I'm not overdoing it!
3- for first couple weeks was getting sore ankles,mainly up outside of my ankles. I know the trainers I was wearing weren't running shoes. Recently got a pair of asics gel running shoes and can instantly feel the difference in the amount of support I have in foot and ankle but last 2 runs I feel my shins a little sore. Not so much when running but after. Even now 24 hrs after run they are sore if I press over my shins. Is this shoe related/how I'm running/need to stretch more??
Also - anyone recommend any particular running shoes?!?
Sorry for all the questions! As I said I'm very new to this and definitely have the running bug, just want to make sure I don't have to stop due to injury or anything!
Any hints appreciated
