After years of being unhealthy i decided to go for it and start the couch to 5k after months of thinking about it.
First week went well, i actually managed the 60 sec (just) which was a surprise. To reward myself i decided to buy some nice running trainers, but instead of doing any research, i bought a nice shiny pair without any advice.
Week 2 run1 went fine until the last 90 sec run when i started to get a little pain.
Week 2 run 2 owwweeeee.
If i'd done a little reading on here first, i;d have seen the need to choose the correct pair of trainers. Even doing the wet foot test i can now see that i have a very high arch and so the support trainers were really the wrong idea!!
Looks like my beautiful trainers will be going on ebay and i'm going to have to save up to buy another pair in a couple of months, this time after consulting a proper running shop!!!!
