Correct Running Shoe Size To Reduce Injury!

Since seeing this video 6 months ago I've increased my shoe size!
Too small a shoe can stop your foot from fully absorbing the shock of landing!
Your arch needs to fully compress and the toes need to expand without restriction to work correctly!
Since upping my shoe size I can now run in much lighter more minimal shoes yet feel less aches and pains in my legs!
Are your shoes too small?

At 4.16 Mile Pace!

Just entered the Penny Lane 10K.
Not done this race since 2003 where I ran 35.15.
Can I match that time?

I'm with you on the shoe thing Rick. I generally go for a half size bigger than my normal shoe, and sometimes this is not enough, particularly when striding out on downhills,


Going up that 1/2 size does make a big difference, I always use to go by having a thumb widths space at the end of the shoe but this is not really enough!

The way you are coming on Rick I reckon you could do that beat that past 10K time running in your jim-jams!


Thanks Scott,
I've got a 5 mile race next week so that should give me a good idea of where we are at!
