Hi. I've just started running and want some advice about keeping it up.
I'm 35, 6'3" and over 20 stone. I'm in the gym fairly regularly lifting weights but cardio bores me to tears (treadmills - what's the point?) - and I find it difficult . That said, I know I need to change my diet and exercise regime so I've started a circuit around Wandsworth Bridge to Battersea Bridge and back. The route I take is about 6km - I've done it three times this week and I feel pretty good about it. Legs are sore but I'm improved already from my (admittedly terrible) first time...
I'm going to invest in some running shoes. I've checked my wet foot imprint - it's not flat but I definitely over pronate. Given my weight and running style, can someone please recommend a decent shoe? I probably won't spend more than £100 (and would rather pay £60) and I've got a thing for Adidas if I'm allowed to be picky.
Cheers. I hope I keep it up.
