comment When is it time to buy new running shoes
It's not me. If somebody like Jon Vonhoff, who is the most well regarded expert on feet and ultras and who volunteers at Western States, suggests it then I'm good with it. If an ultra-runner who does 100km+ a week wants to do it then why not. Sure it's unusual and not generally advised.

@IvoFlipse It's not always possible for some people.

Shoe soles, yes. Shoe uppers, not necessarily. There is an excellent book, Fixing Your Feet, which recommends cutting the uppers on brand new shoes to fit your feet - if that is what your feet require.

comment How to accurately measure muscle mass versus body fat?
The body fat measurement scales give you body fat as a % and your weight in kg (or lb). Hence, if you see your weight going up you can see if you're adding it as fat or muscle. Vice versa on the way down.

comment Why don't my thighs hurt?
It scales roughly linearly. 45 mins of hill work sounds about right. You should do 5-10 minutes warmup before hand and 5 ish minutes cooldown afterwards. This just means running at a quiet pace. When doing the hillwork run the hills hard on the way up but coast on the way down. (Unless you're specifically training for downhill running.)
