Well after my first disastrous attempt in a chain in London, I plucked up the courage and headed off to a local shop I didn't know existed tucked away down a side street to find some new trainers... Wow, what a difference 😀 I may have ended up spending a bit more than I'd hoped but was taken seriously and the personal service extended to spotting the hidden goth-rock metal 1980s teenager with the comment 'you might be struggling with the available colours' 😉
Fascinating to see the video analysis and found some beauties, even if they're not purple and the tread should give me better grip compared to my current pair. I won't diss my cheap adidas ones though, they've got me to week 8 without any issues but when I put one on each foot at home, the inner sole felt like cardboard in comparison!!
So as my new friend said yesterday, I should now fly to week 9... Here's hoping!
Happy running 😀
