I'm just curious as to where you got your feet measured as I have the opposite problem, my narrow feet hardly fan out at all and all my running shoes end up feeling like flippers. I would love to know my 'official' size even though I don't hold out much hope of getting anything better fitting ????
I have them, loved them at first, they felt really lush and had the forefoot cushioning I was after (aging feet on the way to bunions). But now after a couple of months I'm finding them a bit heavy and clumpy, especially towards the end of long runs when I'm tired, and hopeless in races. So I'm not so sure I'd get them again esp given how expensive they are.
You've done really well to follow the programme through, many start and never finish it. Defo slow down like others have said, there's no shame in running slow and don't worry about what others are doing, slow down and enjoy it, look around and take time to feel a bit smug lol. You've also done really well to keep going during the coldest, darkest months of the year. Spring is in the air (well sometimes), days are getting longer, it's going to get better and better. I'm a cancer survivor - remember why you're doing this it will motivate you hugely - oh and a runner is just someone who runs, nothing more, nothing less. Well done on your honesty, believe me we all feel like that sometimes!
My partner has exactly these, after much dithering (and I mean for months if not years) he went for these, already had these sunglasses and paid about fifty quid in total for the insert+lenses and says they're brill, he likes that it will really easy to just get the insert updated if his prescription changes.
