anyone else had problems changing?
I've been running in Brooks Adrenaline for a number of years and they have really helped with my overpronation. Unfortunately the new pair I bought recently resulted in me having very bad blisters which in turn altered my running and gave me further problems. I have returned them and I'm now running in a Saucony pair suitalbe for overpronation. The jury is still out on these! I was very disappointed as I loved my Brooks!
I got 309 miles out of my GTS7's, 403 out of my GTS8's and after just 98miles in my GTS9's I'm wondering if I should ditch them. I'm getting bruising on the top of my left foot (my smaller foot) just a bit up from where the little toes join the foot, bruising along the outside bottom edges of both feet, I've lost almost all of the skin from the ball of my right foot with bruises on the ball of the left foot and on the inside of both heels. And during a 16mile run I locked the cuboid joint in one foot and have seriously bruised it on the other. My last two runs (which to be fair were both quite short 3miles) were in my GTS8's and the bruising has gone. I've got a podiatrist sorting out insoles to sort out some general problems with my gait but I'm wondering if a new pair of GTS10's might be the answer?
Running causes overuse running injuries, not shoes.
The longer people go on not accepting that fact, the longer they will continue to suffer niggles and injuries until the day that they finaly realise that maybe, just maybe, they are in control of what happens to their body and they are able to change things themselves.
... ok, that may not always the case, but is sure as hell is in 99% of cases.
Snap Pegg, I've had a week (4 runs) of my old GTS8s and my dodgy piriformis doesn't appear to be that dodgy any more *fingers x'd*. Could be coincidence but i don't think so.
