New shoes ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

When I started C25K I pulled on a battered old pair of Salomon trainers that I'd been wearing to the pub for a few years. To be honest they've been absolutely brilliant - I've had no foot problems at all. Garmin Connect has been keeping track of the distance I've run in them ever since I got my watch as a graduation present. We've covered a lot of ground together!

However the soles are getting very worn now, particularly under the ball of my foot which hits the ground first every stride, so it must be time for some new ones. I run on a mixture of tarmac and mountain trails, so I chose Salomon Wings Flyte as theyโ€™re a hybrid road / trail shoe. Here's to the next few hundred kilometres ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฃ๐Ÿ˜€

Lovely ๐Ÿ™‚ I had a pair of hybrids- Brooks Cascadias. My fave shoes ever. I was gutted to have to bin them I did absolutely miles in those babies

Good luck with your new shoes. Taking them for a spin today?

Check them out Mike! โค๏ธ

Iโ€™m off for a gait analysis soon - keep postponing it. My current Asics appear to be perfect (my *touch wood* dormant PF was caused by a different pair), although Iโ€™d prefer to have that confirmed.

Those look mighty smart. Will look forward to hearing how their inaugural run goes! ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ
