Well, since I seem to be sticking to this running lark, I thought it was time for new shoes as the pair I bought at the beginning are showing wear on the sole. I've done almost 300km in total, which is quite amazing. I hesitated about going to our local scary running shop, but having done some reading of reviews on the web, I found people are saying good things about Decathon's new own brand, so I thought I'd at least try them on. I have custom insoles from the podiatrist, so I figured I needed a neutral shoe and to let the insoles do the correction. Anyway, I tried them on and in the shop they were really comfy and felt very supportive. I figure they've got to be better than what I was using up to now (Decathlon's entry level "occasional runner" shoe.) The new ones are allegedly for people running up to 5 times a week up to an hour a day, so they should be fine for my purposes.
They are also rather a snazzy fushia and lemon design. Dunno what it is about running that makes me want to wear bright colours. Paid 80Euros, which is about 70quid I think these days.
