Third attempt at W1D1 of C25K. Still didn't complete it. I got new running shoes which are way better than my old ones, they don't make my legs ache, but they gave me blisters even though I wore them all day to try to break them in. And then I had to jog past a few neighbors mowing their lawns. Cut grass is one of my biggest triggers. At least now I'm not super sore like I was the last two times! I was looking at treadmills the other day- does anyone know anything about manual treadmills? Do they work well, or are they just a big hassle? I'm thinking of saving up for one, but since I'm super crazy broke, every dollar is important, and manual treadmills are cheaper. At least on a treadmill, I won't have to run past the things that trigger my asthma.

Hm, maybe the blisters are from your socks. I found that my feet are very sensitive to socks. I found the best for me are very thin but stable socks that don't rub at all. Try different kinds to see which work best. Sorry, I can't help you with the treadmills. I don't know much about them. - TamiPoppins  47.5 #4878 8:58PM
My friend who runs marathons told that she buys " double socks" to run in. She gets them at a running store. She says they are one sock with two thicknesses of fabric. The fabric rubs on itself instead of your skin. She says they really work for preventing blisters. - vernswifevickie  400.5 #563 5:39AM
Yeah, go to a running store or REI and ask about socks :). I can't help with info on a manual treadmill, but have you thought of a gym membership instead? I just thought that it might be a cheaper option for you, and you'd have access to all kinds of different machines. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 7:49AM
