I can do this! 2 sessions down :-)

Have been reading posts and feel very inspired. I went and got fitted for proper running shoes on Monday which was a great start as they found a pronation in my left foot which might explain why normal trainers were horrible for running. A tip from a newbie who was unsure about trading up her shoes - I think they are a must.

I did my first session on the treadmill but braved outside on New Years Day (hoping everyone else would be indoors recovering) for session 2.

I really want to complete C25K as I would love to run in Race for Life in memory of my Dad.

I can do this!
