Ok, history. Did the C25k last summer but for various work related reasons stopped until Boxing Day when I restarted and yesterday did 30 mins, not very elegantly mind. I bought new trainers but they have been giving me shin splints and lacking my knee joints hurt: I have very flat feet.
When to a running shop today to buy a new top (have Raynaulds so struggle with controlling my body temperature), and get my new trainers looked at. Anyway, got my new top but have been told I am not a natural runner and my legs aren't strong enough, and that really I should stick to walking.
I'm hoping to go out tomorrow in my old trainers which seem to support my feet better (the new ones haven't been helping as they haven't yet softened enough to support me adequately), but frankly wonder whether I should bother.
I have no support and only 1 person knows I have been jogging, and they laughed because they run for 2 hours and wear only shorts and a T shirt whatever the weather. So much for other runners being supportive! I also got nipped by a dog last week and yesterday when I was out, another dog went for me.
Part of me really wants to jog and I enjoy it, even in the rain, but I clearly am a crap runner and probably not cut out for this physically. So disheartened.
