A while back I started doing the c25k training. I did really well for the first few weeks and then traveled with my running shoes and a pair of sandals, going back and forth between the two.
During the trip, while squatting down to take a picture my arch started hurting. I kept running anyways and continued to have pain while running.
I got insoles. The top was leather. When the weather got hot, I started to get blisters.
Last week, I got a new pair of shoes. I haven't taken them out, but I've worn them a bit inside and I'm not sure if the arches are good enough for my stupid feet. :)
So I tried running with the old shoes/insoles and slathering my feet in deodorant and baby powder and no blister-y issues!
I need to try the new shoes out inside some more and decide if they are going to work or not.
But after all the set-backs for running, I'm now running more like once a week and I'd like to be back to doing it 2-3 times a week.
Any advice on how to re-motivate myself?
