Indeed XX1, and I appreciate that's one reason most people don't feel they can really offer any advice.
Anyway, been to Simply Running in Hull today ( no Up & Running in Hull, nearest is actually York) and got great attention and advice from the owner, who is obviously a keen runner himself. Have got lovely shiny new Brooks Aduro, having had my gait checked ( pretty much what I already knew - neutral with only a hint of under pronation), and then tried on and compared several different makes & models of neutral shoes. These own hands down as they just felt "right" on my feet as soon as I put them on. Looking forward to getting back out there
Slightly disappointed that that the same shoes are £10 cheaper on the shop's own website though
There are a lot of threads re running with glasses by folks who are short sighted and need them to see where they're running etc, but I am long sighted and now without my glasses I can't read my watch / GPS, even with a big display. Has anyone found any glasses designed for running for long sighted peeps? My everyday varifocals would be too annoying to run in, i.e. they would bounce and annoy my nose etc., if they actually stayed on at all.
Yellow, huh? So that's where I've been going wrong all these years!
Yeah, I know I need to get myself to an actual shop, just wanted some idea of what I might be looking for and therefore be able to look at potential price range before I went. Happy to pay for good shoes, but hate the thought of being talked into more expensive shoes than I really need!
