So I asked a question yesterday about whether I should attempt run two. Thankyou all for your answers- I decided to go for it! I read the answers saying it might be my trainers, and I realised with a jolt I hadn't worn my orthopedic insoles on run one..
My trainers are ok, they're not the best, but I didn't want to invest before I'd got into running..it didn't seem worth the expense. I put my insoles in, and gave run two a go.
It was much, much better! I actually found it a lot easier- I have hypermobility syndrome, and I think I lost a lot of energy in run one because of my gait, whereas this run I was much better, and completed it easily, feeling I could do more.
My shin on my left side got a little bit sore around run 5/8, but I persevered gently and it was ok. It's a little bit sore today, but not all that bad. Looking forward to tomorrow's run! Really can't wait!
