W7R2 "Shoes" :(

W7R2 "Shoes" :(

Today is my slowest run ever. Even that didn't happen before this programme. So that's something.


25 minutes of painful ankle.


Recently purchased a pair of formal black shoes from Primark. I might as well be wearing non stick grilling pans. What a mess of a product. It's looks like a shoe, it says shoes on the label too yet I am pretty sure that's the plastic cover that came with the shoe I am wearing and not the shoes I paid at the till.


Been wearing it for the last two days and it definitely has done something to my ankle. Not to mention the blisters. Oh god it ruined my feet.


With every step I can feel the pain. I had to take it slow and steady for 25 minutes.

My distance and halfway point has been drastically reduced. I was shuffling slowly after all.


I have to try and get the money back. What a mess.

  • Ouch..😯 and well done😊

    Look after your feet ..you need them for running. xxx

  • Oh dear... get the feet and the ankle, sorted before you head out again... there is no way you can run with sore feet!

    Take care!

  • Cheap shoes are a waste of money! I'd rather buy a decent pair of leather shoes from a well known shoe shop, obviously a decent looking pair, and wear them all the time. But that's me and not the most fashion conscious person on the plant!

    My local doctors surgery recently held a workshop and there was a podiatrist giving a talk. She gave some excellent advice .

    1. When buying a pair of shoes, wear them in the house for a couple of hours before wearing them outside so that you can take them back if they rub etc.

    2. Before buying a pair of shoes, stand on a piece of A4 paper and draw around your bare feet. Cut out the shape of your feet. Put them into the shoes and walk in them. Then, take them off, remove the paper. If the edges of the paper go up around the edges, the shoes are too tight.


  • Those are some excellent tips!

    Thank you!

  • Oh dear - I feel your pain (although you made it hard not to giggle at the thought of you walking on non-stick grill pans). That and the cartoon.

    Wishing your feet a speedy recovery for W7R3.
