Yes I know, I am 58 and I expect to have a few aches and pains, but it seems relentless, and was wondering how everyone else gets on. I am returning to running and run about 25 - 30 miles a week, and was a 2.56 marathon runner so know about running. I am just tired of the never ending aches and pains. My hips are continual source of aching, and a few weeks ago, my foot decided to give up the ghost for 2 weeks, feeling like it had a stress fracture, but no feeling as to when it could have happened. I wear good shoes, and only cruise along at 9.30 sort of pace, so I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on the mysterious appearance of the ' stress fracture '. I am starting back, and have decided to use the local park for some of my running, as its grass, but a tad boring as its only a half mile curcuit, does anyone have any thoughts about top end shoes? Would a pair of say, Asics Nimbus help, despite already using quality, mid range shoes? I am steady in my determination to return to racing at a good level, would just appreciate any feedback if anyone has any good tips or experiences to share. Thanks.
