haha man I've tried to keep my negative running attitude out of here, I wanted to do it for charity and since it was fun but...

A) I have to train hard for it despite being in excellent shape for a sport
B) I have to buy different shoes, because my current ones that mimic the shape of the human foot will give you stress fractures

fukkkk this!

(this is all tongue in cheek btw, I appreciate the help guys!)

I'll go for a run with my minimus and see how the pain level is, will most likely look into a good pair of runners. I would rather spend $80-$100 than break my foot.

Trust me on this. I run 10Ks regularly, and have run the Army Half. Do not run in those shoes. Go get fitted for proper running shoes, designed for your foot and gait.

Hey Dabears,

I sign under what everyone else is saying here. I used to be a couch potato, now I run an average of 40k a week and did 2 half marathons in the last year. My 0.02$ are:

1. Get proper running shoes and don't be cheap. Do the pronation and impact tests.
2. Get a training plan going. Here is an example of a 10k Plan http://www.bupa.co.uk/running/traini...beginner-10km/ If you are busy with your current training, I would suggest running 3 times a week - 2 HIITs and 1 long run. the HIITs can be done on the treadmill but you gotta feel the tarmac at least once a week.
3. Just run man

Hit me up if you have more questions, would be happy to help!
P.

I personally wouldnt go buy new shoes for that event. I've run 15 miles in my Minimus. If you wear them to train in and slowly increase mileage you shouldnt run into any problems.

So I went for my first run!

Despite advice against it, I decided I'm not willing to invest in a good pair of running shoes for a charity event. I only have 4 weeks to go... I'll take my chances. My choice and my risk!

Had a running partner, shes very fit and an experienced runner so it was good to have her with me. Did a 1.5K run which involved a set of very (and i mean very) inclined stairs up a cliffside, we jogged up them. Those were brutal

After that we walked back to the starting area, and jogged a 3.5K route that was a trail going along a large river that runs through my city. Awesome scenery, and I enjoyed it.

Turns out I'm in great shape for running apparently without ever doing it... I was fine. (At least for a 3.5K after some exertion).

BUT the one thing that was setting me back was the fact my "thunder thighs" which I blame squatting for were chafing... I thought that by going commando in shorts was smart... yeah no. My thighs were burning with horrific pain.

My partner said I should get some compression shorts and wear them under my shorts... I instantly thought of spun and greg lol. Should I invest in some? Or is there a cheaper alternative (even though they are only $35) to eliminate thigh chafing? As stupid as it sounds I'm wearing really short "euro style" shorts so I don't want longer than that compression shorts. I'm thinking there isn't many alternatives after googling...

To meet my retarded "costume" requirements could I flip up the shorts so they wouldn't go down my leg too much? Or would this cut circulation

Or these look decently short...

Lol. What size shorts do you need? I'll see if we have anything unsaleable that you could cut down.

Thanks man, based on your sizing chart I'd need a medium (6 feet, 171).

I need a pair of those green socks too so if you do have something I can place order ASAP

Ran the 10K...

53:14 minutes. I only ended up going for one jog, so I'm happy with this. Wasn't as difficult as I thought, but there was about a ~2K portion that was directly uphill.

I ran with the minimus shoes, but I tied them too tight and my right foot/ankle went numb for majority of the race.

My left foot is fked up, on the outside between heel and ball of my foot. It feels more like a strained tissue than a bone issue... but may have got a stress fracture. Gonna monitor its recovery over next few days. I knew the risks after reading this thread... but I was cheap and didn't want to pay for proper running shoes. It didn't hurt until at least an hour after the race. Not really any pain unless I flex it a certain way, or put weight on it. Hoping for a quick recovery so I can get back to barbell training.
