Couch to 5K

Woahhh week 8 run 1

Well I did it. I picked a different route this time. Was very aware of a lot more people around but cracked on. I did 3 k in 28 mins. Not sure if that is good or bad but this is all about distance for me not time. I did enjoy it but I hate my new trainers. I bought some for flat feet and I can feel that bump in the arch of my foot at the side. They just feel like big and clumsy and uncomfortable

Did you get the trainers fitted for you? Perhaps you could go back to the shop for advice about the lack of comfort.

well done on doing your run :) did you get your gait done when you got your trainers? would go back to the store .

C25K is really more about the time and progressively running more ,each week building on the last :) distance etc can come later , you only have 5 more runs to graduation :D that is a great achievement in itself :D

Hi. No I didntget my gait tested. There isn't anywhere in Middlesbrough that does that . I stood on a machine that told me I was flat footed and to look for trainers colour coded blue which I did.

There is a "Sweat shop" in the metro centre , they are very good at gait analysis :D worth a visit

Oh right. Well I'm going to see how I go with these because I can't afford anymore but thanks... If I don't get used to them I may have no choice to pay them a visit
