Hi everyone - I'm a newbie to all this having reached my personal 'enough is enough' point in my life re my weight and (lack of) fitness - I'm 52, short of stature and feel 'as wide as I'm tall' at the moment 😕
I'm currently doing a minimum of 2 x 1.5 mile power walks a day with my dogs but want to bite the bullet and try running now. I've downloaded the app but am wondering if my current trainers are up to the job of moving from walking to running? Especially as I'm conscious that when power walking I tend to land more on the outside edge of my right foot than the heel.
There's a specialist running shoe shop I've been recommended that does 'gait analysis' - has anyone else had this done? Or can anyone recommend a good 'newbie running shoe' that isn't going to require a second mortgage to buy?
