Hi everyone, since starting C25K I have used my old faithful Reebok trainers, which I have had for years. Last week, I decided as I was close to graduating (just done week 9 run 2 tonight) I would treat myself to a pair of decent running shoes.
I went to my local running shop, stood on a thermo heat type thing which apparently said which style of shoes would suit me and ended up with a pair of Asics Gel GT-1000 at £89.95.
I did the park run last saturday in them, and have done 2 runs this week (Tues and Thurs - week 9 run 1 and 2)
After each run, the balls of my feet feel tingly, a bit like pins and needles. My heels are fine, and otherwise the shoes are fine. What I wanted to know if anyone has any opinions on what is happening, as I didn't get this with my old trainers and should I hang on in there and do you think it will get better with time.
I know a lot of people have said in some posts that running shops will take shoes back if they aren't suitable, but I didn't even think to ask if the shop did this when I got them.
Any advise gratefully accepted.
