Do you stick with what you know or chop and change?
What colour are everyone's current shoes then?
Mine are white with black and gold bits. They don't match any of my running gear.
I prefer my red and whites, but I can't wear them anymore since they have no cushioning, and I'm really paranoid about getting injured again.
Maybe I'll have to buy some gold running gear to match the new ones
Silver with a bit of black and yellow.
D2D, never gave a thought to the possibility of my gait alltering to tell you the truth. Like I say, I'm new to a lot of the technical side of all of this, Just reading some of the threads on these message boards has been good learning.
just a little question for anyone who might know, how long does it generaly take to get over the initial blisters with the asics? The pair that I had were every bit as comfy as my mizuno's for the first mile and a bit on runs but then turned to hell there after.
which marathon are you running Fizz?
I'm aiming to do my first next year. I've got my sights set on next years edinburgh, just depends if I get a place I suppose.
FoC - Just talking from personal experience, it takes me max. 2 weeks or so to get over the blisters (I'm talking until they're fully healed and the skin's back to normal - so you don't need plasters anymore) Any longer than that and I wouldn't even entertain the idea of trying a pair on.
Also, if you're just getting into running, I'd HIGHLY recommend going to get your gait analysed (if you're thinking of upping mileage/getting more serious about running). I learnt this the hard way, I've ran for 5 years and because I'd never been injured, I stupidly didn't bother. Then I got a bad injury and had to take 6-7 weeks off running and use a crutch for a while. It wasn't much fun, and even more annoyingly, it could have been avoided if I'd have had more knowledge on my form/gait.
Ah, nothing major. Just put a plaster on it and sat about for 7 weeks.
Yeah I know.
Better than breaking your leg though eh?
Foc I am having a go at the helsinki marathon in 5 weeks . Probably should get my shoes really sooon as I think the recommendation is to have about 150 miles broken into shoes before you run a marathon in them. I have been using these since my first marathon in April .
Acutally , thank you for reminding me...I will be in dublin in a few days and there is a shop there that analyses gait. Brill.
I am on my third pair of Nikes. Originally I used Nike Pegasus and they fitted like slippers with no need to break them in. However, due to a period of self indulgent laziness I put on weight and I am currently running in Nike Vomero, 'for the heavier runner...' and they are superb.
I have hear a lot of good things about Asics, but I had a bad experience with them a few years back so I have been reluctant to retry them. In all fairness it was the idiot in JJB Sports who sold the wrong model to me, but it has stuck with me. But as people on this thread have said - if it works why change, so I'll stick with my Nikes.
Winking - who sold you these? How did they measure your gait?
I may head to RunOxford this weekend. They've got proper treadmill/thermal imaging gait analysis, whereas I've only had 'run up and down the shop' analysis so far. Shocking for 5 years of running really.
