yesterdayni went to my local running store and purchased a new pair of shoes for running. I brought my first pair last year (same make) for running on my treadmill. I had a chat with the girl in store and another customer and today I christened my new outside shoes.
There is a park near to where I live that I often use to sit in my car with my laptop on, doing work and it has a very nice loop around the lake. I had previously walked pRt of the route last year but never attempted to jog or anything.
The path is mainly tarmAc with a little gravel in places. I put my fleece and gloves on and too of at a nice slow pace. I have jogged and walked my way round the whole thing. All 6km in about 50 mins. I walked when needed, or when dodging ice puddles or going slightly uphill. Had encouragement to keep going from another jogger.
Tomorrow I am going to invest in a jacket and some tops as what I have was not really appropriate.
My legs are feeling a little tender. Mainly around the knee to be honest, which i am a little worried about. My shins are okay which had been a problem on my previous attempt at playing outside, although will know more in the morning.
Recommendations needed for appropriate jacket and top wear if you can help.
Happy. Yes. Tender. Yes. Going to go again later in the week. Yes
The plan is to get ready for a 10k in August.
