3rd run, week 2, improvement to kit!

I've finished week 2!

It's not much easier, but I'm still going, and the main news is new running shoes and a pursebelt thing for my keys and mobile. See pic! I found myself in Oxford Street at the weekend, and spotted a massive Sports Direct. I would never have gone in there in a million years before, but now I definitely see the appeal. I feel like I have got good value for my new shoes and belt and know where to go if I need anything else.

I've gone for the budget end of the scale, due to being on a budget, but tried on a few styles and picked the one that felt best. And after running in them this morning, it's definitely easier on my feet running in these, and I'm sure there is a benefit for legs, back etc. too. Also it's a sign I'm really committed to this now. Bring on week 3 :)

  • Pretty shoes! I've got that belt too, I really like it, it doesn't wiggle or woggle about x

  • Same shoes and belt as me! (Oops CG - see I couldn't stay away ...)

  • Yay we have the same shoes! They're good! I was sure it was possible to get something good and cheap. The guy in the shop said I needn't worry about anything more technical just for doing up to 5k. And CG the belt is really practical, and solves all my worries about zippable pockets etc :)

  • No me neither! Just got in from changing my shoes, promise I'll reply to your message later xxx

  • Wow keep up the good work.
