Yep I had 3 weeks off due to injury and flu so I'd say that has more to do with my drop in time than the shoe but I'm still finding them hard to run in .......but he'll they are helping my knee so il keep with them . thanks again for advice .
Thanks for the all the replies I think il stick with the 1160 untill the marathon in June then maybe try out a few other options if I don't get my timing back . I've lost 4 mins over 5 miles its not much but I was really working on getting a better time when I injured my knee but getting my knee right again is more important than time . I'm hoping to do a sub 4.30 for my first ever full Marathon .
I have recently switched from Nike air Pegasus to asics gel 1160 due to a knee injury and my pain has more or less subsided but I am finding it very hard to get the same speed I had with the Pegasus , I am running at least 4 minutes slower than normal . I find the asics harder to run in even thought I was given a gait analalis and told this was the most suitable shoe for me . Should I go for a slightly lighter shoe or just stick with the 1160 ???
