I'm new to the forum and also new to running. After watching the Marathon last week I felt inspired to get fit and give running a go. I've got two small children and very unfit so Im in desperate need to do something!
So far I am loving it! I did my run today, early morning before breakfast, and loved being out when the only people around are other runners or dog walkers.
I'm trying to work on my running style (I say running but it's more a fast walking pace) as I think I must be doing something wrong. My left foot is hurting along the outer side. It's not really painful, just a dull ache but I don't want to do any damage. Does anyone know where or how I find out what I'm doing wrong? Do I need different shoes?
Thanks in advance. From reading other posts I see this is a supportive community and am pleased to have stumbled across it.
