So I have been meaning to get new running shoes for ages now and just can't find the time to get there but still needing to go for a run!!!
So have been doing vastly reduced runs to prevent any recurrence of my recent IC experience.
Monday did a run 30 mins just over 4K but on a route I was familiar with with limited uphill/downhill (or if there are I don't notice them anymore!)
Tonight I decided I would do another run as a one off as I was in the mood but tried a different route more uphill/downhill but in the end due to our current summer weather ( raining and more raining) in Manchester I managed just over 3k in 20 mins before the rather fetching.... Not pee wet through butch thought I would stop and call it a night.
So my question to you all is once I have my new shoes do I concentrate on the old familiar route that I do to get the km up as normally I do between 5 - 6 in about 40 mins or do I do my new route to try and increase my stamina so that when I do come to a part that is uphill its not as tiring?
My ultimate aim is to be able to do 10k comfortably so I am able to enter the Manchester run in either 2017 or 2018.
Well done if you have made it to the end and any thoughts appreciated.
