Couch to 5K

Damn nikes

I woke with an ankle twinge this morning so I decided to pop to running form in button on Trent. (The guys were fantastic and very very helpful) I had a gait analysis carried out which was £15 and by God my nikes were killing my legs and ankles. So they fitted me with some different shoes 5pairs in total and each time I carried out the test until I finally had a pair that kept my legs and ankles straight. They feel fantastic and they even knocked the gait test price off the bill. So I am now the proud owner of some asics fitted running shoes. So Ju if u are size 11 you can have my nikes lol. Hopefully these will do me proud. Felt really good so I treated my self to a new Tom tom runner cardio gps heart rate monitor watch. Heart rate measured by some sort of laser rather than a chest monitor.

Damn I'm gripped already. I even went out in the rain last night. Just hope the ankle twinge goes away. I hold you responsible for it Alipru with all your praise and encouragement lol. It's nice to have a hobby I can do anywhere too. 6wks and 1 run to go to grad day

Yeah, get you! I don't mind running in the rain as I tend to overheat and look like a lobster within minutes, lol! I'm definitely going to have to get a gait analysis done when my Achilles is sorted. I could finally walk on it without limping yesterday but I'm not going to push my luck and go out on it before next weekend.

At least the carrots will help you see in the dark, so you don't need to buy a head torch as well.
