As a runner I've usually run in what I call cheap shoes and recently
decided to step up my running to supposedly get a better pair of shoes. I
went into a local running shop and purchased the Pegasus and have 50+
miles; I run 11 miles MWF and 7 TTH so I got most of the 50+ miles in the
My problem is during the first 1.5 weeks, 50% of my toes have blisters,
developed mild shin splints and now have pain on the outside of my left
knee that kicks in and stays with me for duration of the run. I just had
to take a rest day - don't usually do this mid-week; that's what weekends
Anyway, after reading of the Air Max problems, am I mixing apples 'n'
oranges assuming that maybe Nike has some problems making their recent
shoes? or am I just facing leg fatigue?
Been running these distances for a while so I believe that my legs are
not the problem.
