The age old shoe question! Help for a beginner

Posted: Yesterday at 16:49

road shoes are fine for those sort of conditions i'd suspect, you really can do a lot of running in "normal" trainers.  It just means you slip a bit in mud or have to walk through the mud puddles, and kicking a stone hurts more than with slightly protected trail shoes

As others have said if you over pronate a lot go to a shop and get them to help you. FYI in the Asics range the shoes for over pronators are the gt range with the gt3000 being i think for the more extreme over pronator.

There are a few sites with lists if you hunt around, for example


eat whatever works for you test and test again. personally I find savouries work best, certainly early on then maybe sugary sweet later on. I have things like sausage rolls and chicken nuggets, and pepperami. 

Leicester or Nottingham Marathon?
