  • I've had a lot of issues in the past and have been working on my bio-mechanics/form for some time focusing on hip/pelvis/core strengthening as well as form.  In the case of the peroneal issues both times it came up was related to trail activity so s…
  • I have experienced peroneal tendon issues in the past.  I experienced it for the first time after running a 5 mile trail race - it took me about 2 months to completely resolve and start running again.  Around a year later I had two ankle turns while…
  • If you like Montrail's - I've had a good experience with their FluidFlex model
  • After much analysis, feedback from other runners and ultimately trying out models at the store - we went with the Precor 9.27, so far we've had it for 3 years and it has been great (and we use it daily either for walking and/or running).   I ran on …
  • Reebok seems to have a new running shoe called the ZQuick - very "Nike Free-like". Has anyone tried or heard any updates on this model? From the little I've found, it appears to be a 4mm shoe. I tried it on at Dick's, was comfortable and seemed …
  • I can't speak to the comparison (Montrail Fluidflex vs. MT110) but I can provide my experience with the Fluidflex.   They are not "stiff" at all (you can fold them/twist them).  I've used them on both road and trails (simple to roots/rocks but nothi…
  • You might still be able to find the Skechers GoBionic Ride online in selective sizes.  The Bionic ride is a 4mm drop with no bump. 
  • I had chronic calf issues for a long time.  My PT recommended another approach to how to roll the calves as well as using the trigger point tools and it has done wonders for my calves, I was a chronic tight calf person and since using the approach/t…
  • I have the same criteria myself and the Skechers Trail shoe fits that need for me.   The other trail shoes that has worked for me include the Montrail FluidFlex and the Merrell MixMaster.
  • I had to respond... the Nike Free 3.0 is my husband's FAVORITE running shoe (but he is unable to wear the latest versions).  Ever since v3 they have changed the width of the shoe (or his feet have changed) and it is just too tight for him now.  He u…
  • Did you notice any inflammation comparing the right vs left?  Were you able to narrow down the actually "pain" source/point? I ask because I have something similar that just started (feel it on the outside/top of right foot when I move my foot (circ…
  • The GoBionic Rides are my latest primary road shoe (I've got a bit over 200 miles on them).  I was in the GoRun's before that.  When I was replacing the GoRun's and I tried the GR2's they felt tighter to me and the 1/2 size up felt too loose so I de…
  • Skechers GoBionic is another "no bump" option in the Go line.   The other shoe perhaps could be the Adidas Gazelle - you could check out the review done by Pete for more info.  I think for speed work and shorter racers - it could be a good option.
  • I have both the Mix Master and the Montrail Fluid Flex.  If you haven't looked into the Montrail yet - it is a nice (4mm drop) trail shoe and the toe box is very accommodating. 
  • I decided to finally breakdown and buy the 10 about 6 months ago (and donate my old one to my husband who is now running and we were competing for it).   I really love the size (the traditional Garmin is huge on a female's wrist) and haven't felt li…
  • BryanEW710 - Bare Access 2's - no - I probably would have tried them as I did run and like the Pace Glove, but 0 drop hasn't worked out well for me so I stick with 4mm drop shoes.
  • Regarding my experience with - Adidas Adipure Gazelle's: "Do they keep your foot warm enough during winter/cold weather runs?"  - personally - no - I could feel the cold air coming into the shoe and my feet tend to numb up in the winter so for me it…
  • nine weeks from the time of the injury (I've heard of some people starting sooner).  I did a search online and found a sample plan to follow (keeping me honest and in check) I just googled and found it:  http://www.pfitzinger.com/labreports/stressfr…
  • I have similar history/background and if you want any more info on what I've specifically done let me know.  To answer your questions with my (humble) opinion: 1) How Long - with my stress fracture (foot not ankle though) I waited 9 weeks and then u…
  • There is a training plan that I was following when I thought cutting down the number of days would help with the ongoing issues I was having (before I realized what I really needed to fix).   I had read an article in Runners World which stated that …
