Just completed week 2 run 1. Stayed in the woods near home to keep out of the sun. Went ok but the third run was a bit like all the motions of running but none of the speed. Think I need to buy some proper running shoes as the ones I wear are just too thin in the sole I could feel every stone and dip in the ground. Not got much money so any recommendations?

If you read the guide to the plan there is a link to buying shoes with lots of advice.

I recommend a gait analysis, but if you are going to do all of your running offroad there is no need, as nearly all trail shoes are neutral. My first pair of trail shoes were Karrimor tempos, which are cheap, but not particularly durable.
