Well after a bit of a false start (had dental surgery after my first run, setting me back a week) I am now ending week two and feeling great, already I feel fitter with each run and have got into the habit of doing some weight training in between to support my joints and muscles - hooked on running again!
So pleased to be in a dedicated mindset again.
I just wondered if anyone here has thoughts on treadmill running and the incline settings? I have learned that when running on a treadmill it must be on, otherwise running outside will be much harder (due to natural incline) and the calf muscles aren't being worked properly, but what setting should I use? Right now I am on 1 but should I be increasing this each week?
Also feel that the trainers I have are a bit worn and not giving me the support I need, I am after a nike plus pair so I have the option to track my runs when I start going in the lovely park near my house but I don't want to pay £100+. I tried the sports direct website but it was rubbish, despite finding a pair I liked the website ended up charging me double - then after a few concerned emailed they just cancelled my order without replying to my query!
Does anyone have any thoughts on where I could get decent trainers for a good price?
Many thanks - the stories on here continue to inspire me!
