So I've just started jogging, managed 4.8km today :) and I suppose it's time to invest in a pair of specialist trainers?? Do you need I really need them, it's not like I'm running a marathon, although my aim is 10K.
The ones I've got are just £20 no brand trainers, they look like running trainers, feel comfy, but I have no idea if they are supporting my foot correctly, etc. I do feel my knees after a long run (4km is long to me), I say feel as I cant say they ache or are painful, I just know they are there and have been worked!
As i have no knowledge in this area, I suppose a visit to a specialist running shop is in order. But I am a bit scared that they'll blind me with science and take my money and run! Lol. How much should I expect to pay for a first pair of trainers as a beginner training for a 10K?
I'll have to go to Cardiff, there are two stores 'run and become' and 'mymoti', any recommendations/comment on either store.
