A trip to the podidatrist a few days ago due to a foot injury landed me in a discussion about proper footwear for jogging/running. The injury had nothing to do with my shoes (that I know of), but I would still like to make sure that I am wearing proper footwear when I start back on my c25k training in two weeks.
Basically, the main thing the podiatrist said about shoes was that they need to not be extremely flexible; he doesn't want them to bend much when one tries to push the heel and toes upwards towards each other.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a good running shoe? I'm not really an avid runner, but I would love to get to where I CAN jog the 30 minutes that the c25k supposedly leads you up to being able to complete. Before my injury, I had finished up week 2, which is jogging for 90 seconds, walking two minutes, back and forth for 20 minutes plus a warm up walk.
