I am in training for a couple of spring marathons (as always seems to be the case !!) ... I seem to be getting through shoes like there's no tomorrow...
I had a gait analysis (neutral) but need a fairly cushioned shoe because of my overly Gimpy knees !!..
I have always stuck by Asics Nimbus and love the last 13`s and like the look of the bright 14`s...
The problem is after only about 100-150 miles the outside heel and toe push off area) is so worn down that I feel it affects my stride and the knee then begins to complain, leading to me favouring the left one and it all goes to rats... I should point out that I'm not an overly big fella ...5'10"...11.5 stones...ahem!!! .oh alright then 12 stones...!!!
So ..are there any comparable shoes that are maybe a little harder wearing than the Nimbus?
I Hope you aren't too sore this morning ... Well done to everyone who took part and I hope you all achieved what you wanted to DESPITE the heat!!
I don't know how the race went for you all but my legs felt heavy from about 6 miles !! and the heat certainly didn't help.. Got Cramp a mile and a bit from the finish just as we hit 'La Rambla'.. but just managed to sneak in under 4hours at 3:56... I`ll take that after last weeks knee pain.
2nd Barca' Marathon for me ... and as always I said " no more !!"...
see you all in London and Next year back back at 'The Magic Fountain of Montjuic'..
