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.
