i kno i can tell a difference when i wear crappy shoes as opposed to my main runnin shoes. thats what the gel layer in asics does, spreads the shock threw out the shoe instead of hittin a hard surface and havin it jar up into your leg. granted it wont take all of it away, but some is better than none.

Really? Cause studies show that runners with more expensive shoes are 123% more likely to be injured. (Source)

Don't rely on your shoes to prevent knee and foot injuries, because they won't. Work on form.

freshman year of cross country i ran in some dr. shoels shoes (idk why, id always ran in asics before and never had a reason to switch brands) and got shin splints like crazy. changed back to my asics and bam, went away. every time ive run in a different shoe, spike, whatever, my legs have hated it. asics does the deal for me. ill get a pair and run em till the souls peel off. wore em threw basic, ait, and majority of all my track and cross country seasons. ill never run in any different shoe. they got me sold on their product. my opinion from experience, you get what you pay for in the line of shoes and boots.

I might have to hit the treadmills at the gym. Never been a fan of treadmills (If I run, I want to end up somewhere different...)
I can really only run on roads/sidewalks around here (city). There's a park, but I'd just end up circling the soccer field over and over (though that would work).
I also really don't have money to spend on shoes (especially not $100+). But thanks for the glucosamin tip, I couldn't think of the name of that stuff. I'll see if GNC has it next time I'm by there.

As for the 300 workout itself...I haven't gotten by the gym in a couple days thanks to being on the brink of sickness (like, I'm just about to be sick, but sitting around doing nothing aka "resting" has kept me healthy). I'll try again tomorrow.



Running on a cement road is better to me. I hate trails because you have to worry about holes, and sticks and other crap on the trails to trip on, Im a very clumsy person..

I just spent 40 bucks on a pair of champions. They are awesome. Shoes are shoes, as long as you have good support and it breathes well, thats all you need. I wouldnt even spend $100 on my hair, and i like my hair ALOT more then my feet.

The glucosamine tip came from Ghostinthewood. Give the credit to him. He listened to me cry and complain about how bad my knees hurt because i wouldt listen to him. lol

a light, good structured pair of shoes are important to me cause i run competitively. to me, a good pair of shoes is like a good marker. settle for some cheap shoe is like settlin for some kind of cheap marker. works if dont run for competetion (or play leasurly in your back yard for the pb reference) but if you run competitively (or play competitively) youll want a shoe ( or marker) that can stand the abuse.

I prefer not wearing shoes. Feet stand the abuse way better than shoes ever can.

just had a flick through the topic and everyone says how hard it is to run on the road, trails etc, last year when i was so incredibly unfit i was the same so i started heading to the gym and running on the tred mill, i found i felt like i was gonna die after running for 5 mins, however there was no pain in my feet or legs as most modern tredmills these days have a cushion under the belt, so i set myself a goal of running for 5 mins comfortably then 10, then 15 and so on

what im trying to say is to set yourself mini goals with running when you start, dont jump into it thinking you are going to run a marathon without breaking a sweat, also break up your cardio between running and exercise bike, you will need to condition your body to the strenious exercise to run comfortably

i am now running lengthy distances comfortably and started doing interval training where you sprint for 30 seconds, rest for 30 seconds etc etc for 30 mins, i have no noticed that my running speed is slowly increasing and my stamina is building too.

recently i did the 10km bridge to brisbane in 56:42, my goal was to do it under an hour, next year my goal is to do it under 50 mins
dont make people a priority, who are only making you an option

Chocolate milk mile this sunday. To run, or not to run? Only thing that is keeping me right now is a sprain on the outside of my left foot that comes and goes.

Running is awesome. My form needs improvement though, or so I feel. I started doing it a few months ago to get in shape, now I run at least two miles a day and I don't think I could stop if my life depended on it. So addicting, and finally something that is good to be addicted to. I can't wait until the snow clears up and I can start running some trails.
