Having settled into the whole C25K thing and being on W3, I decided it was time to invest in some proper running shoes instead of the ropey old trainers that I had been using.
I visited Fit2Run in Abingdon just south of Oxford and they couldn't have been more helpful. They did the whole gait analysis and let me try out numerous pairs of shoes on the treadmill, videoing each one so I could compare them.
I had been a bit intimidated at the idea of going into a proper running shop, but they were really friendly, and not at all pushy.
I came away with a pair of Mizuno Wave Paradox 3, which I'm very happy with. So comfortable and SO light compared to my tatty old pair.
Can't wait for tomorrows run now
