My Mileage

Average around 5 to 7 KM per week; Road running usually. Now increasing to around 10 to 15 Km per week including also on treadmill. Using these shoes only for about 4 years now. Still going good; no injury (fingers crossed). Earlier I used to get problems with my knees. Maybe it is the shoes, perhaps now I run a bit more carefully.

I read the Barefoot Running book — Born to Run and converted to this Freestyle, basically a more flexible sole.
