So I decided that enough was enough.
Sitting on a high stool in a bar, talking about getting fit "soon", wasn't really getting me anywhere.
It was time to take the plunge and go.....running.
I found this website that promised that you could run 5k non-stop within two months of starting the program - and you didn't have to pay over any money, take any drugs, promise any sexual favours, or sign up to any religion.
Brimming with enthusiasm, I made my way to a local sports shop, and left with a pair of Nike Air shoes for €60.
I have no idea if these are the correct shoes for my feet or for what I'm trying to achieve, but I guess any cramps and blisters will tell their own tale.
I hadn't really realised that feet came in so many shapes and sizes until I had a read up on "picking the right running shoe" after I'd bought these ones. A few miles down the road and they seem to be ok so far.
Anyway, I think I've got pretty normal feet. Maybe I should post a shot in the foot fetish groups to get some wider opinions.
Now, off for that run.
