MaisieMooI would like to get back into running. In my student days I was a regular fell runner but life has got in the way and I finally got back into running 12 yrs later after 2 children and a very sedate lifestyle. I started running this summer and even completed a couple of the park runs. however, come the dark nights and work commitments I've done hardly anything. I am looking for advise, I've decided to really try hard to get back into running more seriously but have been looking at a few websites and they recommend you start with visiting a decent shoe shop and invest in a 'proper' pair of trainers. Is this recommended? The shoes I use are quite old but I don't want to spend a fortune on new ones. Will it make a huge difference to me? What do people reccomend doing? Would be good to hear people's thoughts.

BaronessBLWelcome - There is a good beginners thread on here which will probably answer a lot of your questions as you go along.
I would strongly recommend proper running shoes suited to your gait - they don't need to be the most expensive but you are more at risk of being injured if you run in unsuitable shoes.
