I am just about to do Wk8 run 1, and my knees hurt first one and then both. I spoke about it and realised my trainers were starting to look a bit worn.
Off to the local running shop, did not realise they existed, and had a fitting. Mmm the lady was very friendly and polite, however it was clear my trainers ASICS were not running shoes, yep there is a difference folks. In fact she also said they were worn out, even if they were not running shoes.
30 mins later and I nopw have a pair of shoes that were described as "spider man shoes" when I got home.
No this was no cheap, no it was not the cheapest place to buy the shoes either, however
1) They feel great
2) They actually fit me
3) They took videos of me running on a treadmill
4) I arrived at the end of a busy Saturday, the service I got with multiple pairs to try was great
4) They suggested a run up and down in the street.
They gave me lots of leaflets on different topics which are useful.
As they were so helpful I asked some questions about stuff I might not have done.
Thank you Up and Running in Horsham, they have shops all over the place.
