W4R2 done & new trainers

Got new trainers yesterday - motivation to keep going if I needed it! Went out this morning and not even the slightest twinge in my feet, hurrah! My old ones were a 'piece of history' according to the guy in the shop.

I felt really good this morning. Found the first 2 runs the hardest (might have been the hills involved) but was surprised at how smooth it was. Even went further & faster than before according to runkeeper :-)

Looking forward to run 3 and even week 5.....

Wahay!!!! You can do this! Great news on the shoes. Makes all the difference with the wind in your heels, that only new shoes can provide. LOL

So, to run 3 of week 4. Piece o' cake. Take care, have your rest day, look after that bod and you'll be fine


Surprising what a difference good running shoes can make. Good luck with the third run of the week. Best wishes.


Well done gingerbreadman. Sounds like the new shoes really gave you wings!
