I've just started the C25k plan, done my first 2 "runs" and found it ok so far. I'm trying to get my fitness back after years of illness so thought I'd give running a go and found this plan, it seems great so far. The first thing I did was visit a specialist running shop to buy shoes, as I have Plantar fasciitis in one foot I thought I should start off with good shoes, they are great, they are comfy like slippers but like I'm walking on air. My husband bought me 3/4 length running trousers and tops for my birthday so I look like a professional, ha ha! not running like one but I'm sure that will come.
