Hi, I have just completed w4r3... I feel like I need a couple more w4, I still find the second 5 min run quite tough, but I'm happy to stick here a little while before I move on up. I am so proud of how far I've come but breathing is my biggest gremlin...I just can't deep breathe on the runs, I try so hard to focus on breathing lower down in my lungs but it just hurts. I definitely find running in the evenings easier than after I drop the kids to school in the mornings though!
Anyway, I thought as I'm around the halfway point I'd treat myself to some new trainers...my lovely everyday memory foam Skechers have served me well but I'm thinking they are probably not the most supportive for running in....but where to start? I have read forum posts, and articles and stood looking gormlessly in Sports direct at the enormous arrays... Trail, lightweight, neutral...I have no idea, and don't want to be "persuaded" by a salesperson just after a good sale!
