I know it will vary from shoe to shoe but I was wondering at what point you should change running shoes?
I have a pair of Asics Gel Pulse 3 which have now covered about 500 miles of road running and are about 7 months old. They are starting to show an amount of wear across various areas of the sole and heel but still feel ok when in use.
Craig - if you want to try a well organised event - some to look forward to next year would be Northbrook 10K & Stratford Big 10K (or anything organised by Threshold Events or any of the Coventry based Athletics Clubs) these were very well organised and run this year and I will be taking part again next year. I have to say this event caught me off guard as I expected something better for an organised event.
Hd - I agree with you that the event was poorly run and right from the off there seemed to be an air of not knowing what was going on by the Marshalls. Not the best organised 10K event I have done this year and guess there will be complaints made from other park users about this event which I hope does not get mistaken with Parkrun which is far better run than this event today.
Did you clock it at 400m too long? My Garmin had it at 120m too long.
