i love my nike frees, i have a pair i run in 2-3 times a week at the moment im doing 5 miles as my longer run and i also have a pair for work and a pair for just casual wear,they are the most comfortable shoes ive ever owned and ive owned a few ! you will need to build up slowly, you will feel it in your calfs but once you are used to them there is no going back.
hi camilla mouse, i do mainly run on roads and i live in the chilterns so am surrounded by hills! i never run on consecutive days thought that would be enough rest and i have joined a gym and do a lot of work on my legs maybe its time to dig the bike out and give it a spin thanks
ive been running in my nike frees for about a year now ive changed to a more forefoot strike rather than the heel strike that was giving me so much trouble, its probably taken me a year to feel comfortable to overcome my original injury, strengthen and adjust. Im now hoping to enter a half marathon this year so ive been upping my mileage ive got to about 8-10 miles and i find myself with calf problems and shin pain, im wondering if the frees are up to the longer mileage ? should i be getting something with more cushioning for a longer distance ? i love my frees, i love the lightness of them, their flexibility, is there a shoe that can give all that as well as some extra support ? ive been looking at the nike lunar eclipse does anyone have any suggestions ?
