I use ASICS too for running about on a badminton court very comfortable.

I need to buy a pair of new road running shoes. Whic brand and model do you prefer? Anything I should consider?
Eeeek, I can't remember what brand I've had!
I sort of turn my right food inwards (overpronating, I think) so I need special shoes. I think the current ones are Asics.

My recommendation is to use a specialist shop: it was there that I did the running test and realised that thing about my foot (and why it hurted with normal shoes) and they were able to recommend a few that I tried there. Put them on and ran for a bit, on the treadmill at the shop.
It might be a bit more expensive than buying online, but it's worth it.

Yes, it's overpronation and I have it, too. There are shoes that support overpronation but it might be better to buy a neutral shoe and change the insole.

One of my candidates is Asics Gel-Excite 6, the other is Nike Pegasus 36. Salomon Sonic Ra was an option, too but it's price is much higher.

I am probably 25 years out of date here but firstly do you run on tarmac or grass? Real running shoes tend to be specific and if you run off road a specialist running shop will map your steps and make your insole accordingly although not all manufacturers or makes of shoe offer this option so it can bve limiting but i found it worthwile as it reduced the issue I had with shin splints greatly. I also used to buy a pair of shoes and after they were run in if I liked them get a second pair and split the load between them. In the UK it is wet more often than not and it was just a too handy excuse not to run if my shoes were still damp. You could also gaurentee that by the time you were after a new pair that model no longer existed.

My fain focus is trail running but I cannot practice much on trails as I usually go out for running after 10 pm (after kids sleep). That's too late to trail run. Therefore, I usually run on grass and asphalt, no tarmac atm.

I would love to wear Saucony, Brooks or Hoka but those brands are not present in Turkey. That's why I'm only limited to Nike, Adidas, Asics, Salomon and some other brands.

I have a Nordic Track inside bicycle with a decent sized screen for showing me all sorts of road and mountain bike trails all around the world. I get on at 5:15 a.m. most mornings, and find myself in New Zealand, Canada, the Swiss Alps, Turkey, and more. The bike increases the tension and even angles higher or lower, depending on the terrain and what the trainer is encouraging you to do.

It’s weird knowing that my heart meds are controlling my heart rate and this impacts how hard I can ride. You don’t like to think of yourself as limited. But there it is.

Indoor cycling/spinning is one of my favorite exercises. Im currently looking for some good training videos so I can pedal away in the gym.

That sounds amazing. I used to wish there'd be something like that, a treadmill/ cycle/ elliptical trainer that'd show you scenes from around the globe. Glad to know that became a reality, haha.  :D (Now if I just have the cash...)

Is it like a screen or virtual reality goggle? That would be lovely if I wore a VR google and look around while you cycle :)

Except for the sweat pouring down my face, I’d want it to be VR. But it’s a decent sized screen. Still, when the coach, who is riding in front of a person wearing a Go Pro in order to make the video, says “Just look over there! What a view!”, you sort of want to strangle them.

Give me sweat-resistant VR goggles.

I'm for running, against cycling.
The only time I tried a spinning class I was ready to murder everyone after 15 minutes, so I'll stick with what suits me ;)

Good to know you can do all that stuff, Jmack :)

I mean, it'd also be great if they could implement some 'interesting' situations and scenarios in these VR/ screen type of exercising. I once had an idea of maybe putting you in some zombie apocalypse VR, and I bet anyone'll will be that much more motivated to run when there are a hoard of zombies coming after your brains, hahah.  :D
