I know that part of the problem is I have flat feet. I should probably go to a running shop and get proper advice on what shoes I should wear, which is a shame cos my social anxiety was really, really hoping to avoid that.
I'm also thinking about taking up yoga. At home, of course, but there are plenty of online tutorials and I'm hoping that it'll help with my strength and flexibility and make me less injury-prone.
Part of me is wondering if I'm just not meant to be a runner and should just give up now. But I don't want to give up that easily. I still think it would be good for me, health-wise, and I'd rather not have to walk the whole 7k that I'm doing in May.
