I have my first marathon in just under 2 weeks and did not really pay attention to my trainers during my run plan. My current trainers have logged 490 miles and I have about 30 miles left of my log. After realising I was close to the gospel 500 mile switch off point ( according to most blogs and articles on the net..) I bought a new pair. After getting advice as to what to do from a specialist in a running store I am still none the wiser?
So what do I wear..
A - Old trainers that would have logged 520 miles before the big day?
B - New trainers that would have logged 30 miles before the big day?
Annoyed I put myself in this position in the first place as I know I should have been wearing trainers that were only halfway through their life! Thanks in advance!
Coming just over a week after a 5k PB of 18:07 I was certain of a sub 40. Frustrating as its a nice flat course. Think I lost about 20-30 seconds when I got stitch. Pain was horrendous and surprised I didn't stop. Next 10k has a massive hill so think I will have to wait. Great day anyway and wefond one to everyone who achieved there targets!
10k is officially the hardest distance! ( Although I'm yet to experience the big 26.2 )
