I bought a pair of GT2170s goretex trail, in the same size I had previously bought all my Asics GT's (road). The trail show gave me so many problems, too tight over the arch. I managed to get into an Asics store and the assistant said that as the goretex was a bit stiffer, I should have gone up a half size. I am a ladies 9, gents sizes seem to be a bit wider for me (have long thin banana feet), so to go up to 9.5 (when my 'normal' shoe size is 8) never occurred to me. He also warned about the GT2000s that I should try before I buy. I live in the middle of nowhere so going into stores that stock my size is a mission for me. I am a bit annoyed at Asics 'tinkering' so have been looking at the Brooks Adrenaline ASR9, as years ago I picked Asics over Brooks when both fitted comfortable and was hoping Brooks had not fiddled around as much but am now so confused about sizing. The store prices are also quite a bit more than online. Not sure whether to take a chance with Brooks. I guess the answer is that I have to try on in a store
Start getting it checked out now, GP first! It might be a niggle only but get it checked out in case it gets worse. I am regretting not doing something earlier so best to rule out anything you can now! Hope you get sorted out
I logged on to see if I could find a clinic in my area, had / have the same problem. I carried on running because it didn't hurt when I was active but ut eventually caught up with me. They first thought psoas muscle, then after a few sports massages, my normal massage guy said to go to GP, who ruled out hernia and other possible 'non muscular' issues. Have since been to NHS physio who thought (did not have MRI scan) it was a hip labral tear, so after lots of rest, to building up to small exercises then walking then running again, it started again. Like a stitch in the side, after sitting for a while. am now back at GP, physio and wanting to try and get an MRI scan, 8 months after it started !!! So
More on this at this website.... after reading a lot about all of this now, surgery is sounding scary, the worst thing for me to hear would be that running is a thing of the past, so am interested in hearing how people have coped? success stories? I am still going through the RW threads but the first one I found (before returning to RW) was this one, it has the good, the bad and the ugly all in one place and spans over a year, so worth a read for anyone else searching for more info on this..
