Shoes tend to be at their best for 500 miles so as long as you've done 60 miles or so in them I reckon you'll be fine for the 1/2m. That probably means you'll need to be wearing them at least 3 weeks pre -race.
At the moment I'm doing about 12 miles a week. Obviously that is going to increase as I progress through my training schedule. However on that basis it would probably take me almost a year to run 500 miles - someone told me either 500 miles or 6 months?
It does actually I had an uncomfortable run this morning only managed 2.6 miles in 30 mins. My left leg feels 'awkward' and I keep getting shootings pains up the front of my thigh. My shins are a little sore as well but presumably that's normal after a run???
Sorry to hear you had a "bad 'un" this morning.
Sore shins are not unusual at all. I have got used to running shin pain off though that may not be the best policy. It really depends on how long the pain lasts during and after each run.
Hopefully your other woes will be just one offs and you'll be ok to run tomorrow or Thursday. Try stretching a bit more and walking with long strides before your next run.
My next 1/2m is in 3 weeks so I feel as if I need to have a good couple of runs in the next 2 weeks to get anywhere near my target! An 8ish miler planned tonight....just looked out the window...it's pouring down and really windy!
I bought a pair of Asics a couple of months before my Half Marathon, I was on average running about 10 - 12 miles a week. So I reckon I mustered 90 ish miles with the new ones before the bid day arrived.
I've never had any problem with these shoes, would recommend then.
I have a problem with my big toe wearing through the top of my running shoes. First "proper" pair of shoes were some asics. Lasted < 30 miles before they had a hole in the top. Sent them back.
So I went for a pair of KSwiss with a pretty thick top area. Really comfy, been happy with them, but...
I took up running last year and was progressing really well with 5-10k runs in a time I was more than happy with.
I live on the Isle of Man and wanted to get into the country a bit more to enjoy the scenery rather than running around town.
I bought a pair of salomon speedcross 2 to...
I currently run in Brooks Glycerin with custom made orthotics. These shoes are fab but have thougt about changing to either Brooks Ghost or Hoka Clifton. Anyone had experience of good shoes with orthotics.
Hi running community

My burning question is “which racing shoes should I purchase to help improve my racing times & even my training??
