I was anxious about run 3, so far everything had been going ok, but to jump from 8 to 20? As much as I trusted the programme, I didn't believe many people made it, but I just did! I am sweatier than I can ever remember being, EVERYWHERE, but I feel good.
My calves and ankles were a bit sore for the last couple of minutes and I'm wondering if I need new shoes? I wear (embarrassing) cheapy £7 trainers from tescos to run in, with a arch support in as I have flat feet. I sometimes run on grass, around a sports field, but that's a bit boring so I also run 1 or twice a week on the pavement.
I know I probably need proper running shoes, before the slight aches and pains that I'm beginning to get get worse, but I've heard that the proper, gait-measured shoes are from £80-£130 and I just can not afford that. I like running because it costs me nothing, I've not spent a penny on running 'gear,' still running in a old pair of leggings and hoodie or massive polo t-shirt.
