W2 Take 2

After a bike accident and lots of travelling I have completed week 2 again, after nearly a week without running the thought of trying week 3 was a too daunting. i am finding that repeating a week gives me a bit of a confidence boost, knowing i can do it and gently leading up to the next week. I was wandering at what stage to get gait analysis? My trainers are fairly new comfy and supportive but does running for longer periods needs better trainers?

hello! I've seen you're doing better after your accident but think this post went unanswered? Have a gander here - basically you would be best "running shoes", properly fitted, especially after the early weeks (erm I think I've read week 4 ish?) - you say you have trainers but that word could mean a variety of shoes :) .

I'd have described the pair i started in as trainers but they are more accurately planks with laces :) - I've got running shoes now!


Brilliant, thank you.
