I recently ran the Paris marathon and through training I ran about 400 miles (over 12 weeks). I had two pairs of adidas response stability 4 trainers and used them on alternative runs. Just before the marathon I was advised by a running coach, podiatrist and a shop assistant at a reputable running shop that the trainers were 'dead' and needed replacing. So essentially the trainers lasted about 200 miles each…is this normal? I’m 5ft 11 inches and weigh 12st 7lb….I would have assumed that the trainers would have lasted longer!
As I will be running more marathons – does anyone have any advice as to which trainers last the longest / or which ones are most durable (I know this is a difficult question to answer as running styles / weight / etc vary). I can’t justify buying a new pair every 200 miles!
