Been running for a while, just got a new pair of shoes fitted from a running store. My first run tonight, had shin splints and the bottom of my right foot hurts. These were expensive, is this suppose to happen when you first buy new shoes?

Whats your current 2 mile time?
Mileage?
Goal?

I think your long run should be about double that if you really want to see results. But I need you to answer those questions first before I can give you a more specific answer.

No, they shouldn't do that especially if you don't normally have any pain. The heels on those shoes is built up more than you normal running shoes causing you to heel strike and send the shock up your legs. Is this correct? I can't say for sure but thats what I'd guess. Also running shoes don't need to be broken in. They should feel fine right out of the box. In fact, I feel better when I get a brand new pair and run in them. I always end up running faster than normal.

See if you can exchange them?

Yeah, I'd clean them off so they don't look like they've been worn outside. I know my local running store back home with let you exchange them if they don't feel right when you run in them. So long as you didn't wear them a bunch of times or get them all dirty.

They'll likely be pretty understanding.

I just recently started running and my knees have been hurting, what's the best way to avoid that?

I run 2 miles on a treadmill twice a week (not consecutively), hike on the weekends, and swim or bike on most other days. I wear some nike trail running shoes so I don't know if its the shoes, or if I'm doing something wrong.

Part of your problem is that they're trail running shoes, which typically have less cushioning than a traditional running shoe. Trail shoes are going to have more support and be a lot stiffer because of the terrain.

Treadmill running also takes time to adapt and get use to. People often shorten their strides because they run really close to the front of the belt. Couple that with the extra bouncing and breaking you experience when you're running inside on a treadmill vs outside.

Both of those are going to have an effect on your knees hurting.

Thats how long it took me to run three miles

So, besides losing weight, how do I knock this down to 24 minutes? 22 minutes?

Yeah I'd recommend getting some good running shoes and take a little while off. At least until your knee stops hurting and then start running again. 2 miles twice a week is low enough you should be fine starting up at that amount again.

Alright cool, I stopped running about 2 weeks ago because i didn't want to **** up my knees, so I should be good to go when i get some good shoes.

Anything specific I should look for in shoes or just arch support and that they fit well?

Whats your current mileage?
How fast have you been training?

I'd say that upping your mileage alone should get you to drop that down several minutes.

Go to a running specialty store if at all possible and have them analyze your foot and gait. They'll be able to tell you what your arch is classified as as your pronation. Both of those will play into what shoes you should wear, support/stability, motion control, and neutral. Those are going to be the 3 main types of shoes.
If I were to just recommend a shoe without knowing anything I'd suggest some sort of support stability shoe as it can't really hurt.

increase your mileage slowly, don't start doubling it every week. Maybe add in an extra 3-5 miles to your weekly routine and you should see results. i wouldn't worry about any speed workouts at all at this point

Yea, I was 12 flat at the half way point. Didn't even think I slacked off that much on the way back . . .

Yeah you're going to probably need to hit the 1.5 at around 10 minutes. Most people don't hit even splits so even if you don't think you're going slower you probably are unless you are working harder.

What was your mileage and pace for your training runs though?

It'd be better but you need to take into account how many races hes done. Mentally its a lot tougher to keep a consistent pace because its not a consistent effort. By going out faster and holding on hes not really going to deal with that. But you're right it'd definitely be more ideal.

Anyone try those Reebok Hex Rides? The claim to have good cushioning, which is a plus for an underpronator like me

Oh cool a running thread. I run a little over 4 miles every other day. I'm trying to get 100 miles before spring break. I would also like to be able to get it done in under 35 minutes (I know, pretty slow for most of you, but I just started running a few weeks ago). So hopefully by March I'll be at that level. Gonna go run now actually.
