I said from day one that if and when I completed W4 I would treat myself to new shoes. I decided before I set out that if I did it, and felt ok by the end of the last run I would try to run a bit longer to a max of an extra 2 mins (like last week). This was suggested to me last week for the last run, and I did it and it helped to alleviate doubts about the upcoming week.
It’s a grey murky day here today, but not raining so that was a plus. Did the pre run stretches as per, toddled off, and managed to do it plus the extra 2 mins. Legs very achy, but post run stretches helped with that.
So husband is taking me to Decathlon in Sheffield on Sunday, and I’ve told him to bring his wallet! I’ve never been before, but many people on here talk about their running gear positively so I’m off to check them out. I know gait analysis will probably be recommended and I’ve read the post and other stuff online, and as I’m buying trail shoes I’m just going to try some on and go for comfort.
Sorry for the long post.......
Track of the run: Dynamite - Taio Cruz......need to create my own playlist 😉
