Garmin + sporttracks + training load plugin = slightly more intelligent running.

WKO+ sucks, BTW, in case you happen to look at it.

Like climbing shoes, there's no best shoe for any amount of money - just ones that fit and work for you and ones that don't.

Most stores these days will put you on a treadmill and look at your gait, landing in different shoes with a high speed video camera.

If you start developing strange pains in your legs or hips, you probably have a curable issue with your shoes and/or your gait. Many give up running due to these issues, generally blaming "running" as the problem.

The Brooks 'Ghost' running shoes served me well all winter. I battled the cold lung syndrome for a time, then ended up on the treadmill all winter down at the Double Eagle. Sure was nice to get back outside once spring arrived.

I added a mile every month. In March, running 5 miles every other day, I had a bout with splints in the left shin, and had to lay off for a while. Stayed on the stationary bike for a few weeks to lessen the impact, then took a two week break from everything to get healed.

By June 1st I hit 8 miles every other day, and feeling good. Those Brooks shoes are the bomb!

Now that I am where I want to be, I have to say....running would be a great, truly wonderful thing.....if it weren't for all that...running.

The good part is it takes less time than road biking.

My own cardio has dwindled to climbing approaches and eating pizza.
