Change in trainers

Hi,

Training for the London Marathon and got a new pair of trainers - out for a long run tomorrow. (weather permitting)

Only got trainers on Thursday - I wore them the other day for 35 mins on Friday and my calf muscles were quite tight.   Should I wear my old ones or try these?

Or stick with a long-ish run on the treadmill instead?

Thanks

You need to break in your new trainers over a coupld of rshorter runs until you dont feel that calf tightness any more.

Stretch your calves after your run too, whichever trainers you wear.

This is something I always forget to do, but it makes all the difference.

Thanks all.  Especially re stretches after running.  I'm very naughty about stretches in general really. Keep meaning to get better. Must start this week.
