Quick update did my W5R2 this morning, second run since my restart after my Knee and cold virus problems. The run went well managed to keep going for the two 8 minute runs so hopefully I am keeping on track. Don’t want to count my chickens etc. I did that before just before the knee problem.
Second run with my new Nike trainers to correct my overpronation. Now for all you experienced runners out there please don’t laugh, well not too loudly, I noticed when running in the long grass trying to protect my joints from the pavements that my toes felt wet! Sure enough when I got home wet socks around the toes. My new trainers did not seem waterproof, so I rang Sweatshop and the nice lady explained that all running shoes are not waterproof they are designed to stop your feet over heating/sweating too much so therefore as well as letting air in they let water in. You need trail shoes if you want waterproof shoes.
Last time I ran a lot as a kid/teenager, which was many moons ago, we had plimsolls or early sport shoes not these new designer type running shoes so didn't know they were designed to let your feet get wet so hopefully I’ll have happy knees but slightly damp feet on my runs from now on.
