I am new to this - but loving it!
I have lost 6 stone in 5 months speed walking - but still weigh over 20 stone.
What I need to know is, can my faithful brooks road trainers that have got me through the last 2 half marathons do the job for beacy head? or do I REALLY need trail shoes? or do I go the full monty with walking boots? does weather conditions make any difference. I have an extra wide foot, so spending out another £150 on a pair of footwear for a one off event doesn't thrill me. also, I am walking up and down hills to prepare - but they are road paths. Do I have to train off-road?
thanks in advance - I appreciate the community support!
