I was training for the GNR last year and wore a pair of Adidas trainers not sure which ones and after only about 300 miles max they started hurting my toes so I figured that I needed new trainers and thats when my problems started. I have an overpronation more on my right then left foot and so I bought a pair of Brooks Ariels. A few weeks ago on my 1st run outside which was 5 miles my forefoot felt like it was on fire and so have been trying to wear them in a bit, they still feel too firm. I have tried wearing them every day and for a couple of weeks and did a 3 mile run last week and they dont feel like they would be comfy enough for a long run.
Next I have a new pair of Saucony Hurricanes which I am just wearing day to day now to see how they go. I plan to test them at the Gym tonight and do a 4 mile club run tomorrow and 3 mile run Friday in these and see how they feel.
Next I have a pair of Nike Pegasus which I thought were really comfortable but my Physio said that the shop missold me these and they are not for an overpronate. This is backed up by the fact that on my last two long runs my feet have got sore, after my LSR on sunday I have a blister on my big toe.
So the dilemma is, I have a long run on Sunday to do which is 14 miles as I am in training for the Paris marathon. Which ones do I wear?
I seem to have a real problem finding the right trainers, does anyone else have this problem or have any suggestions?
