I treated my son to new trail running trainers yesterday as an encouragement to keep him running with me on Sundays. I really enjoy his company, even if he is reluctant. I'm sure he does it for gaming time really.
I too changed my trainers, for an older pair from the back of the cupboard, and was surprised at the difference they made. A lot less hip discomfort...perhaps a bit more arch support...so maybe I'll try them again on next week's run. Week 5 here I come!
