I'm only on week 5 of C25K but am thinking of doing a run/walk Parkrun in the next couple of weeks. I figured that once I am running 10 mins regularly then I can split it into 3 or 4 runs with a walk in between. I have registered and chatted to a few runner friends who all think I should go for it. But I have just spent a small fortune on my beautiful Brooks trainers which I am using for my road runs and are very definitely a road shoe. Do I need to be buying different trainers for Parkrun?
I also want to do a local colour run later in the year to raise money for charity but have been told my trainers will get mucky, so don't really want to wear my bestest beauties so early in their running career. My dodgy knees means I already wear a orthotic insoles so a second pair is likely to be an expensive business.
Any tips from Park runners or ideas for a cheap second pair?
