Yesterday I went into town and had my gait analysed at the local sports fitness store. The computer said I need support shoes (I have collapsed arches in my feet) so I went ahead and bought a pair while I was there.
Today's run was done this evening instead of this morning as I went on a
day trip to St Helen's with a friend as soon as Paul left for school. I wore my new shoes while I was out to help "break them in".
The run went well, though the pace was slower than the previous two runs. I think it was due partly to having new shoes and not being used to running in them and partly because I changed the time I ran. Normally, I run around 10am. Today I started at about 6:30pm. The good part is that during the run, my ankles didn't hurt at all and at the moment, they seem to be in good shape. Hopefully this means that the shoes are doing their job properly.
I'm resting the entire weekend from running, although I'll probably get some walking and weight training/resistance bands in at some point.
Week 2 starts Monday!
