As the title implies, I did my first run this morning. Nothing major at first. The route I took is about a mile and a half, and I reckon I managed to run about 2 thirds of that. I don’t suppose that is bad for a first time, especially at my fitness level. I tended to run about 400 yards, then walk for a minute, then run another 400 or so. It will improve though, although I don’t think I will be running every morning. I think I may try three nights a week, after work, and then again on a Saturday morning.
The new running shoes seem to be okay. They did not rub at all, and seemed to cushion my heel, which is what hoped for. I think the knee supports worked, I did not feel any discomfort while running.
