I've run for over 18 months in my ASICS Gel Kayano 18s - which suit by running gait very well. Since they're are pretty expensive to replace (but are now getting close to the end of their working life after 1000+ miles), I don't know whether just to replace them or whether the 19s are an improvement. Does anyone have any experience of comparing their performance, please?
I keep getting adverts for the Speedcross 3 & 3CS. I do a lot of trail running on mixed surfaces, often with quite a lot of mud & water, but also on hard lumpy surfaces. I'm in my early 60s & have problems with my right heel & back of the ankle and left ankle. I'm currently using a Salomon XA Pro 3D ultra, which is great on heavy ground but I can feel my heel/ankles on hard ground, and Asics Gel Trail Sensor 5 for when the whole course is hard, but not when it's muddy. I'd welcome any views/experience on whether the Speedcross might help.
I get some - almost always from passing motorists, who i ignore. When I'm doing cross country, walkers & dog walkers are usually always polite & friendly. But just occasionally it goes the other way. I was running on Monday after a break for holidays and about half way through my 10 miles, feeling absolutely rotten, when I heard a car hoot. I looked up and saw the driver of a white van give me a friendly thumbs up. It made me feel really great. i could actually feel renewed energy going into my whole body. I can put up with a fair amount of stupid (& usually unintelligible) comments for the occasional piece of encouragement.
