Hi Gkoop, I'm glad you spoke to a professional. this is quite an old post and I cant remember the exact injury (ive had my fair share of injuries since, 2016 has been a particularly tough year). On reading back this looks like my version of shin splints, in my early running days they would have been fairly severe as I was heavier. Nowadays I'm a lot lighter but I still get shin pain when my shoes need replacing. Most people say change after 500 miles but I don't record it, I just know its time to buy new shoes when my shins start to hurt, if I don't then after a couple of weeks I end up with what sounds like above.
Are you sure you are in the correct shoes and that they are not worn out?
been using start fitness for a while now, bought my last 4 or 5 pairs of shoes there, i think the service is excellent, prices are usually good, freebies are nice and delivery times are always as stated.
As per wilkie above I rcently ordered a pair of nike lunaracers. i went for the older cheaper model in a lime colour which i didnt really like but went for it as they were cheaper than the newer model. What arrived was a nice blue pair of lunaracer +2 (the newer ones) , result!
plenty of people have had a look but no opinions yet. just to let you know that i bought a pair and ran with them this morning, and as per the reviews i read they get a thumbs up from me.
My run included sprints, stairs repeats and hill repeats as well as a slowish jog back home and the earpods stayed in place perfectly. they are very comfortable but they are not a perfectly snug fit and felt like they were going to fall out on several occasions, but they never did. i had the cord tucked down my shirt and a few times i felt it tugged on by my collar etc, these slight tugs would have easily removed the old ibuds from my ears but the new ones didnt budge. its probably this that made me feel like they might fall out at any time so it may just take a little getting used to.
Sound quality probably isnt perfect and they dont drown out surrounding noise but as a runner that is probably a good thing. i would agree also that if you want to spend £100's then there is bound to be better out there but they are probably the best that £25 can buy.
totally agree with everything hungry consumer says above. get the right shoes first and foremost, running jacket, proper socks, hat and gloves and although not totally necessary for you just yet, my garmin watch is probably the best running investment ever!
unfortunately i am not due to upgrade my iphone for a few months but i like the look of the new earpods. the original apple ibuds are crap and just wont stay in my ear while running. I have seen a few online reviews that say these new ones stay in place very well, even while at the gym/running etc. They are £25 to buy and apparantly decent for the price, though there seem to be much better out there if you want to pay the money.
I'm not mad about having absolutly perfect sound quality or about interference from street noise etc I just want to know if they will stay in place during a fairly fast 10k run?
