I got the Mizuno Riders!

I went to the ONLY speciality running store in my area today and I purchased the Mizuno wave riders. It came between those, nike pegasus (spelling) and another nike shoe. I haven't ran w/ them yet but I plan to this evening--does anyone have this shoe? Thoughts and opinions?

Today is workout #2 of the couch to 5k plan

YAY!!! I have a pair of those and love them. I use them for gym at school. If you find you need more support, try the wave nirvanas. Those are my all-time favorites.

I ran in Mizuno for a year, but I think they discontinued the model that I liked. I have not tried the Wave Riders because I personally like a little more support. They are a good legitimate running shoe though. Happy running!

Mizuno is a great brand, and that's a great starting shoe. Did they watch you run before recommending a shoe? Main thing in a shoe is that it's comfortable and you don't feel any pain during or after your run.

No they did not watch me run. The store was seriously the size of a very large hallway. Anyway, they said that I can run on it indoors or on the treadmill to see how it feels---and if i dont like the feel, i can return it and find a different shoe.

That is a good sign that they will let you return them. The only think I can think of with the Wave Rider is that it is a neutral shoe. If you tend to overpronate at all, you may need a more stable shoe. Overpronation is when your foot rolls more inward as you run. Your shoes will wear on the inside edge more. The Pegasus is also a neutral style shoe so maybe they saw something in your shoes that led them to recommend those models. If you start to notice pain particularly in the knees, you may need more stability. The Mizuno Wave Alchemy and Wave Inspire are the models with more stability. Sorry for the info overload, but my head is filled with useless running shoe information.

My knee actually did have pain while running (which I have never experienced before)..maybe it's because I'm new to running, or the shoe? Also, I noticed I did not feel much support in the heel area of my foot..

any ideas?

if you haven't run in a long time your bones will actually get sore. Also, you muscle will be sore for a week. Just work through it.

are you running on a treadmill or on a track(concrete/rubber)?

I'm running on a treadmill until I decide that these shoes work or not. I'm going to run again today, hopefully my knee feels better.

The Wave Rider is not going to have much support in the heel. It is designed for runners that don't need it. It sounds like you need a more supportive shoe. I would go back and exchange them for the Alchemy or Inspire or and equivalent stability shoe from a different manufacturer. How many miles did you run? Did you increase your mileage substantially? Honestly, having a little too much support is probably not going to hurt you as much as not having enough. Good luck!
