Today marked my first day of the third week of my C25k training. Week three consists of the five minute warm-up walk, then one interval of 90 seconds running followed by 90 seconds of walking, then a three minute running interval. This pattern then repeats once more before the final cool down walk.
The training started off pretty good, well less for the discomfort with my new running shoes that is. Right away, the new shoes felt heavy and bulky. It was a weird feeling to say the least. I think I must have started tensing up my legs because I started to have some shin pain during the rest of my workout despite my attempts to relax my body.
I pushed through the pain and discomfort and completed the workout, as I was not going to give up. It was just too bad that my new shoes didn’t get any more comfortable on my feet. Hopefully, this will improve in the coming days. Overall, it was a good workout despite the cold temperatures and uncomfy shoes.
