Hi everyone - completed W9R1 on Tuesday, due to go on run 2 this evening but got a slight problem, outside of thigh muscle in my right leg is a little sore (not bad enough to cause any problems walking) so not sure if I should leave it another day to recover or just go for it.
Over time heels on my normal shoes do tend to wear down on the outside first, so presume most of my weight is on the outside of my foot when walking. My trainers (karrimor run) are only a few months old, they are comfortable and have no sign of wear on them.
When I first started on C25K had the usual aches in legs for a short while after a run until week 7 when everything went ok, finished my runs and no real leg ache until this week.
Not sure whether I should look into going for gait analysis to see if it is my trainers or it could be the sustained longer runs and my legs need to get used to them.
I do all of my running on the pavement at the moment and did slightly change my route for W9R1 to include a few slight upward elevations (not steep enough to be hills just long and sloping). I had previously run around on a more or less flat route.
Hope you are all fit and well and enjoying the lighter evenings.
