New purchases for me...
New Balance 1080's and some running socks.
Got a proper gait analysis and tried out multiple pairs of trainers at Up and Running in Milton Keynes before plumping for the NB's. Best shoes, and they look great too.
The new running socks are great too.
Only question is why didn't anyone tell me to do it sooner!!? It's like a whole new running experience!!
Would highly recommend getting proper kit to anyone. Bye bye Adidas JJB specials (4 half marathons done), and generic sport socks. You are now for gardening only!!
Of course by "best shoes" i meant for me, based on the feel of them and the video evidence.
Other sports shops and running shoes are available...
I like NB shoes - and they have outlet shops up in the lakes !
I dont really do the technical socks - any thin sock seems to work for me - but definitely shy away from the 4 pairs for a quid thick white socks.
Did 21 miles yesterday in the new combo and feet are absolutely fine.
Previously i've had epic blisters after 10-13 mile runs...
However, my shorts did split yesterday (bulging muscles). Nike shorts suck... Need to buy some new ones before next run!!
