After the hail and monsoon type rain we have been having during this fine British summer, I came face to face with an ankle deep puddle from a lake bursting its bank. Cant go over it, cant go under it, have to go through it, splish splosh splish*. The upshot of this is I have very dirty wet smelly trainers which I have been rinsing off and putting on the radiator to dry as soon as I get in. This is not what the manufacturers would encourage as standard care or maintenance of the trainers. I assume trainers (they are nikes pegasus) are reasonably roubust?? Anyone been through this and found there trainers falling apart or packing their bags and leaving home due to the abuse the feet were putting them through.
I have tried different running routes but always seem to find huge puddles- I must be a water magnet.
Keep on plodding
