As yesterday was an enforced rest day, I went over to Teddington, to The Sweat Shop (http://www.sweatshop.co.uk) to buy some new running shoes. Concerned about an injury so soon into my training, I realised I was going to have to invest in a pair that were designed for my style of running.
Well, thankfully there was no obvious sniggering in the shop, and I left there, some 40 minutes later, considerably lighter of wallet, albeit with some fetchingly pink shoes that match my running outfit perfectly. Shallow, moi?!
I was still a bit stiff and sore today from my session at the osteopath, but as I had her permission to run today, wanted to keep to the C25K plan. Thankfully the run went without incident, and the hip pain I felt on Monday did not recur.
Hopefully the new shoes have helped in that regard. And hopefully they have dried out enough for my next run, on Friday!
