But I am over 400 now so I'll see. I'll poke my dad about it actually, see what he thinks. He's been running for 40 years or something.
100 miles would have me need 6 pairs a year.
Well. My dad runs at least double of what I do each week. And he's got shoes around 5 years old. He only replaces them when the rubber bottom is starting to disappear. So he'll to over a thousand miles on them I think. One thing he does do is rotate multiple pairs of shoes. I shall try this when I'm fully recovered.
Speaking of which. Managed a 15 minute run without knee pain this week. Next week will feature two such runs and the following a half hour run. *fingers crossed*
