leg strain issues
I currently run in Asics GT 2140, which is good for general short distances, running at a slow pace. The moment I increase the pace and run longer distances I get leg strain. So much so, that I have to stop for a few days. It is my belief that it is the shoe. Has anyone experienced this problem? Is it the shoe or me? Can anyone recommend an alternative shoe?
Define "leg strain". If it's just sore muscles then it's perfectly normal to get that if you run further or faster.
If it's something more serious then... did you get your running gait looked at before picking those shoes?
I ran about twenty years ago and never had these problems so I definitely think it is the shoe.
