I am going to buy a new pair of 'proper' shoes today. Found a Running shop called 'Up and Running', never knew it existed! I will get a gait analysis done and get a good pair of 'Brooks' if at all possible as I seem to like the sound of it. We will see.
I spoke to someone in the shop and asked a question. I wanted to know whether I should wear the shoes for while before doing a Race in them and he said that I don't have to. I asked few of my colleagues who do a little running and they said that the salesman would say anything to sell his shoes!
I would like your experience please though, have you bought a pair of new shoes and run a race without using it for more than thrice? I will have 3 days to use them before doing my RfL.
Please help and I would be ever so thankful!
