Hi, due to injuries I've not run in quite a while, but really want to get back into it. In the past ive alway used Asics Cumulus, as they have a natural wide fit and can take my orthotics, without pushing my foot up thought the laces. I'd love to got out and buy a new pair of cumulus, but finances dictate otherwise. Can anyone help with suggestions for cheaper alteratives? (neutral/cushioning shoe)
I managed to do the 6k today, and apart from my calf feeling sore when I walk, it went quite well. The only downside, for me, was at the 3k mark. I slowed to walking pace, and that killed my legs, but stepped it up for the last 2k, and finished well, (for me that is). Now, the only thing to see is, what my recovery will be like, as my condition/injury, (spinal problems) does make my recovery times longer than most. If all goes well, i'll be looking forward to next year, and running in sunner weather.
Hi folks, I'm taking part in the St Andrews 6k this Sunday at Strathclyde park, and I'm nervous as hell as it's my first event since last November due to injury. I'm looking for advice on how to keep relaxed, and not worry that I'm going to injure myself. Any advice, no matter how weird most welcome.
