New runner here in training for an upcoming 10k (actually, it's only a week away now [gulp!]).
Last week I bought some new shoes - Brooks of some sort, with 'moderate' stability. However, I foolishly bought them what I think is about half a size too big.
When I run, I'm not slipping in them or anything, they're actually fairly comfortable, but I can feel they are just a tad too big. I probably should have gone for the 8s, rather than 8.5s.
The problem is I have run in them a couple of times and so am unable to return them to the shop. So, I was wondering if there's anything else I can do to make them fit a bit better, without doing any damage while I'm running.
For background, I am not a runner. I did a 5.6k last year which took about 33mins. This year I signed up to do a 10k and started training about 6 or 8 weeks ago. The run is next week (Sunday), although the furthest I have run is just over 8k (in 51mins), so not great. Fingers crossed it'll all be good on the day!
Thanks in advance for any help.
