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'm taking part in the Dopey Challenge at Disney in January 2020, its a 5km, 10km, HM, FM one day after another. I have really started to up the distances I am running and am in need of some new trainers, this is the best place I can think of for honest suggestions and opinions...
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.
Had these for 9 weeks, used them for running/walking and covered 246 miles in that time.
I'm 15 stone male, in HM training.
Can anyone tell me that the wear on these shoes are normal for the life i've had them, and also if you think there is more life in them, or should i be changing them?
