A bit of background, not sure if its helpful or not... Recently got into running as I've not been playing many sports for the last several years and really feel the need to get back in shape. Though I'd never say I was a 'natural runner' or 'fit', I've always said I was very active playing Football, Basketball, Badminton amongst many others. I've been running for about 4 weeks now. Started doing 1/2 a mile in just under 4 mins (hanging on for dear life at the end), but to 1 mile in 7mins 30 secs and 2 miles in about 17 mins now.
I decided I need to get some decent trainers as I'm currently just using some Nike Air Max ones. I went on a treadmill to check for over/under pronation - and I'm a neutral runner. I'm keen to get Nike trainers as they fit me really well and I always have one of those Nike+ things which I'd like to use with there app.
After going into a running shop in town the guy said with being a neutral runner I should get the Nike+ Pegasus or the Nike+ Vomero - the later may be better they said I tend to run on my toes more and the Vomero has more cushion throughout the trainer. I'd be interested to get people opinions on this?
I found a pair of Lunar Swift which I like but I'm not sure if these will be suitable incase they're for under/over pronation though, which I think they might be?
Apologies for my newbie-ness - I just don't want to get a pair of trainers incase they're not suitable for me or could cause a bit of an injury in the long run - hope someone can help!
Thanks in advance, Steve
