Since starting on C25k I've gradually upgraded my running gear. There's no doubt that good trainers and technical gear make it more comfortable. However as I walked back to the house after my run this morning I did wonder if there was more to it than that. When I first started on this programme I would go out in something which looked like normal clothing. Basically I wanted people who saw me to think I was going for a walk and I would only run when I got to the woods and people couldn't see me. Now I don't mind and walking home red-faced in my gear says "I've been for a run" and I'm happy about that. Also I realise no-one actually notices runners.
What do others think?
