I recently purchased a new pair of Brooks Adrenalines, and I plan to track my mileage closely with this pair. Historically, I have usually replaced the shoes around 400 miles, but maybe I should be doing so earlier?
According to a recent article in the NY Times, I could be risking injury by not replacing the shoes more frequently.
Thanks to a run club friend for finding this article!
When to Retire a Running Shoe:
Ryan Hall, one of the world’s best distance runners, used to pride himself on wearing his running shoes into nubs. No more. Now he assiduously replaces his shoes after running about 200 miles in them. He goes through two pairs a month.
