New trainers

    So I bought a pair of Asics online and got them today - had previously used brooks for my marathon and marathon training but felt like going back to Asics which I had worn for years pervious. Put them on and thought they felt a little snug but said I would take them out for a spin. Did 5k and they were so so so uncomfortable. They feel like they are a half size too small. I’m kicking myself as I shouldn’t have brought then put, should have just returned them. Will in just have to offer it up and take the €180 hit and purchase another pair?

    Did you break them in? I bought a pair two years ago, went home and knew from a trip to the supermarket they weren't right. Cleaned them off and got them replaced. Easier done in normal times, though.

    First time in them was 5k jog this evening on footpath. Despite being just on footpath and road, the soles are black. I think I will just have to keep them and get a different pair which are a little bigger. I’m annoyed as they are the same size as previous pairs but the toe box is really tight and my toes squashed.
