Newbie of 2 weeks.
After a long, slow run 4 days ago, I developed a stiff neck/ pain between the shoulder blades (like a sore vertebrae or something). I sometimes get the same thing when I have been stood on my feet too long or walked too far. It normally clears up after a nights sleep, not this time!
I've had a couple of easy runs since. The runs loosen up the stiff neck quickly enough, but it returns the next morning.
Could this be due to my shoes? Maybe I need more cushioning.
At the moment I use bottom-of-the-range ASIC Gel (no specific Gel model), cost me £40 from JJB sports.
I've been thinking about some NB 751 trainers.
