Switch shoes during run (Read 140 times)

    OK. I finally get to ask this question. How can you record it properly when you switch shoes during a run? You can only assign one equipment to a workout. So it's going to have too many miles. To account for the excess, can you reset its initial mileage negative? I will try it and find out.

     

    The second pair will have its mileage underreported. In that case I guess you add the distance to its initial mileage.

     

    Switching shoes is something many people do during ultras. I always stage an extra pair if it's 100+ miles, but this is the first time I've actually used them.

        This is what I've done.

          I just did this last weekend, needed to change shoes at the 10 mile turn around on what wound up a 26 mile run. I logged all the miles on the shoe that went the longest, then went back to my log and found 10 miles on that shoe from a previous run and changed that to the shoe I started with.

            You could "split the workout" into two workouts.

             

            First, copy / duplicate the workout. Then you can assign a shoe to each workout and delete the miles that don't apply. But, if you also want summary information for that workout, it will also be split (e.g. it will no longer show up as a race PR).

             

            I suppose you could make a third copy and not assign a shoe to that one, but that may mess with your other totals. Maybe assign the two shoe workouts to an "other" activity?

              I just assign the shoe I start off in.

               

              Adjust the 'initial" mileage downwards for that shoe, and add miles to the other pair(s) used.

                Switching a shoes is not a solution, in my opinion in running you need to wear lightweight and flexible shoes, I also have many running shoes and I mostly buy from reecoupons, because I get discount from there, nowadays st.patrick deals are available there, I suggest you take an advantage from this sale, go on St. Patricks Day Coupons and buy according to your need.

                  My brother is a runner and he always got 1st position in his running competition but in his last completion, he faced some problems due to problem of his shoes so I thought he wants new shoes and I bought for him comfortable running shoes from 80eighty promo code in a very low price.

                    It would be easier to find a pair of shoes you can wear for the entire race even if you cross water.

                    Start a second activity if you're worried about tracking the mileage on your shoes for a race instead of finishing the race.

                     

                    What would resetting the initial mileage do? You'd have to know how many miles you're going to run unrecorded...which you'd need to record.

                     

                    How do people finish ultra marathons without tracking every miles for their shoes? This would be a better question to ask.

                      How often should one change shoes when sitting at a computer infiltrating forums all day? Every 4 hours?
