    I don't think the Zeros will have another try at my feet. They were light and speedy, but as mentionned in the article posted by digrar my right foot feels like a log, straight and hard. I had a look at them right now, and frankly the the mid-cushion looks like a slice of battered spam. The outsole looks ok, but that is normal given I switch between track, tarmac and treadmill. So very little grind.

    On the subject of running shoes, anyone tried Newton Running Shoes?

    Nope and I seriously think about acquiring Saucony's Ultras. Now there is also a "bundle offer" from Reebok two for 150 euros at the store here.

    Pink, yellow and orange runners are not really my thing. They are very hard on the eyes.

    Yes, they might not look very good, but the technology behind them is what I'm interested in. Look at this:

    If it can reduce chances of injury and increase run times, I'm interested. A bit pricey though...

    I follow this http://www.100pushups.info/ program. It is easy, max 30-40 mins per week and tougher then you may think.

    I can do 80 sometimes 90 in under 2 minutes. My APFT is looking good right now, around 290.

    Eh... does yellow, tangerine and black suit your eyes better? The guys at Saucony have chosen those wonderful colors represent their "new collection".

    I'm interested as well, it's a bit of a drive to one of the stores from a place that I call home. I usually go through about two pairs of running shoes a year and I run upwards of 20 miles a week...well not right now...but I was before I got to France. Nike seems to be my brand, but I'm a pounder...that's what happens when you have a football player hitting the track because he likes to run.

    Well I did a ct scan on my left knee, turns out it's kinda screwed, got slight subcondral esclerosis, traumatic lesion in the menisc, a bit of free fluid etc
    Now I am waiting on the next doctor's appointement so I can show him the results.
    You guys think it would be ok if I did some gym work before I see the doctor ?
    I wont be doing any leg exercices, mainly chest, arms etc...
