Hope everyone is fine and dandy this evening. Not posted for a bit as I have been busy doing my 3 runs a week consisting of the C25k plus podcasts.
Just back from doing stepping stones which went ok but had the strangest cramp and pins and needles in my left foot which I haven't felt before. Did the usual 5 min warm up/ warm down etc. Not sure why this is bit it lasted a good while and was quite off putting.
Back.home and done my post run stretches which I found difficult too.....surely I shouldn't be feeling this stiff immediately after a run?. I could honestly hardly bend my legs! Not helped by a frisky border terrier who thinks it's time to play when I get on the floor to do buttock stretches lol.
Maybe just having an off day today let's hope it doesn't reoccur with my next outing.
Also, thinking of investing in some mid range circa £50 -£60 trainers, is gait analysis a must? Been doing some research which suggests I am a moderate over pronator so require support trainers and a wide fit I guess. Do you have to go for the next size up too?
Sorry for all the questions thus far I have been wearing my son's old karrinors size 8 and I take a 7, no complaints but suspect my achey knees would welcome some extra support.
