Well after a few days off with a sore ankle, I went back out today with my lovely shiny new Everlast running trainers and completed all my runs at a faster pace than usual without my ankle hurting which was a bonus. Mind you, it was only week one again because I hadn't run for a few days and was more than a little apprehensive about diving back into Week 2 without testing the water in terms of my ankle/general fitness.
However, the trainers have definitely made all the difference, they're really lightweight and have spongy bits in them which gives more support so I'm going go back out on Wednesday and tackle week 2 again. Sorted out the issue with my earphones as well by buying a pair of Karrimor band running earphones which stay where they're put haha.
I will get past week 2 and on to week 3 - that's my next goal! I'm finding that breaking it down into smaller chunks for now is definitely helping me continue to keep going.
