Hi all,this is a first time post and I apologise in advance for it being long winded but want to give as much info as possible! I also thank any in advance that get through!
I'm a fairly new runner in that I took up running in march after tipping the scales at over 18 stone after a few years of inactivity due to giving up my chosen exercise,( Football) through age/injuries. I am now over 3stone lighter and getting towards my target but won't to continue to get back to my old healthy self.
I'm 38,6 foot and of a large frame,(at 15,my neck was 17" and I was pencil thin),and have settled into a routine of approx 6.5 miles every other day. I'm a moderate over pronator and my shoe of choice was the Asics DS 17,obviously I am finding it hard to locate due to it being superseded and so need to find a replacement model. The newer version just doesn't work for me and neither does the Brooks adrenaline GT 13 and so I'm edging towards the Nike Lunarglide 4.
The Asics weight,fit and support around the upper were the main reasons for it becoming my preference and after trying the Nike shoe briefly on a treadmill it seemed just what I'm looking for but just wondered if anyone else had a similar experience with it or indeed a replacement for the DS 17 that might be a better choice?
I run predominantly on roads but most of my routes have a grass alternative alongside that I use when my shins play up,(this is infrequent and becoming more and more so.)
I appreciate any advice people may have,
