Sorry, it's a question on the blog posts (can't put a photo on the questions).
Do I clean my shoes or not?
This morning's park run was somewhat squishy (does anyone else give in to the giggles when running through puddles?) and my shoes came home caked with mud and soaked. Do I just leave them to dry and run the mud off next time or should I rinse most of the mud off and try to get them a bit cleaner?
Not that running with dirty trainers is a problem, you should have seen the state of my trousers after Thursday's run when I started the park run this morning. It's just that if the mud gets within the fabric it'll cause extra friction and start wearing it out more quickly. Or am I over thinking it? If the shock absorbing powers of these shoes only last 4 to 500 miles that's only a year's worth of running (3 x just over 3 miles per week x 50 weeks) then would they wear out in other areas at all within that time frame?
Any thoughts? What do you do?
