I was in my local tech running store (Achilles Heel) on Sunday looking for shoes to correct for my over-pronation (more pronounced on the left than the right). Quick background: Was prev running in Nikes and the pronation on them was terrible (didnt used to overpronate, only do so now after leg injury).
In store, I ended up choosing Mizuno wave Inspire 9s which were comfy when wearing/running in store and correct my pronation well (it is my understanding that these are moderate stablility).
Due to ITBS issues i have yet to run in these, however I have worn them around my office on the advice of the physio to get used to stability shoes, and when walking about.
I am having one issue with them- the outside arch of my foot on left only is feeling a little pressurised/bruised in them by the end of the day. Obviously this worries me as to how they would hold up over a whole run/training. Is this something that will decease as I get used to a stable shoe/as the shoe becomes more fitted to my foot or should I go back into the store and consider swapping them for something else? Any info?
Sorry I didnt mean at all that you were talking codswallop, i meant that whoever said "Someone said that 10k in under 40 mins would make someone an "average club runner" and worried the original poster was talking codswallop
Not sure why you thought I was directing at you specifically :/
I was meaning that a club would definitely accept the original poster!
I call codswallop. I run for a university team and am frankly a totally average runner. Our club spans from 59 minute 10k ers to 30 odd minute 10k ers. The right club would love to have you with them. Most of the guys who run for us are 40-odd 10Ks from about 42 to 48.
