I've just started to embark on a lifestyle change to get fit after 15 years (and 2 pregnancies) sitting on the sofa I'm now 34. (As background I used to do a lot of sport in my youth!)
I have managed over the last 6 weeks to comfortably run 5km in under 17 mins and am looking to move up to 10km with the goal of entering a 10k run in October thats local to me. (Its unlikely that I will try and run any further than 10km in the long term)
At the moment I am running in a pair of £10 trainers from Sports Direct and I am after some general advice on shoes that can offer better support and any other equipment that experienced runners consider essentials! (light weight rain coat maybe??)
