This might betray quite how badly equipped I was on my 1st run...
Today I tried wearing some old trainers instead of the converses. They're not strictly running shoes but at least they have arch support. I felt a bit of a spring in my step, a taste of what it might feel like when my body gets more attuned to running. Proper running shoes are definitely on the list of things to get.
I wore my lightweight rain jacket which was not too warm. Zip up pockets meant I didn't have to worry about my keys and phone falling out. The jacket was definitely a solution of sorts, but it's too small for me and could become too warm. So I'm on the lookout for a lightweight breathable top with useful zip pockets too. I think I can stick with my old track suit trousers for the time being though... These legs are not designed for shorts!
Lastly I wore headphones so I could hear the 'run', 'walk' etc, and not have to be visually checking the app on my phone. But my email alerts kept coming through, which was distracting, so I'll have to change that bit to silent next time... The headphones also kept my ears warm.
Running hot bath and stretching hamstrings right now, then getting on with my work
