My running partner and bestiest friend has just been diagnosed with arthritis of the knees and he is dessamated to say the least. Im looking for some advice regarding running shoes. I feel that at 54 years of age, comfort and a good fit are more important than runners gait,under/over pronation etc so can anyone recommend a really good quality, comfortable, shock absorbing shoe for my mate.
I stand corrected Mr Puffy.My time was 1.38.08 and my training partner was 1.38.02 so the difference was 6 seconds.............just had a thought!!,my training partner had both envelopes containing the timing chips sent to his address,the organisers have put the wrong timing chip in the wrong envelopes so I was wearing his and he mine,that can be the only explanation,really pissed about it
Just wondering if someone in the know can explain something to me.Ive just run the GSR.My training partner started the race a good 5 seconds in front of me,we ran the race together and crossed the line at exactly the same moment but our timings say he beat me by 600th of a second.So what happened to the 5 seconds he started in front of me,to my reckoning my time should have been quicker than his cos we crossed the line at exactly the same time,am i making sense lol
