Ive been thinking of having this done for ages and last year had decided I would get a fancy new pair of trainers for Xmas. Then for various reasons I stopped running around October/ november and have only just started again. Im on week 4 and hate the idea of having to run in front of some fit young sporty types and getting very embarrassed and flustered becuse I'm all out of breath and sweaty after only a few minutes. Quite why I keep graduating and stopping is a whole other issue , if I hadnt stopped (again!) I wouldnt be so unfit now but im getting a few twinges in my ankles and shins so I guess I really should get some better trainers. I would probably go to Sweatshop so would love to hear abour whats involved before I psych myself up and go in.
