Can anyone tell me what is the recommended amount of miles you have to do in a new pair of trainers for them to be ready to take on a marathon,I am not to sure as i have heard some very different views
Not many. Are you running in trainers or racers. Racers - a half would be enough to bed them in and let you know if they suit you.
Trainers a week or two to do the same.
Don't over do it or they'll be battered before te race
1 short run and 1 long run just to make sure that there are no new friction points, bruised toe nails etc etc.
If they are identical (same make, model, size, mk) probably not required.
Thanks Yellow,Fat buddha,and Sean G. The trainers (saucony grid stabil mc 5's) that i will be doing the London and Edinburgh marathons in are what i am running in now without any problems,so better to save new trainers for the marathons then.
I wear these trainers because i am a fairly severe overpronater,I get on alright with them but find them a bit on the heavy side.Any sugestions on any alternative shoes
