I’m still not ready to start any speed training yet. My Achilles is so much better but I know it’s not quite right so don’t want to risk it especially with the whw training weekend coming up.
I went out for an easy run at lunchtime around Pollok Park. I was surprised but happy that my legs felt fine after yesterday’s longer run.
While I’ve enjoyed wearing my Hoka’s for all my runs over the last week or so I feel it would be better to buy a new pair of road shoes. I was given a voucher for RUN4IT so decided to see what they had. I wanted to buy a pair with as lower heel to toe drop as I could.
I was told the Saucony shoes have changed all their shoes to an 8mm drop so I thought I’d try a pair of those. As soon as I put them on they felt very comfortable. I had a go on the treadmill with them. RUN4IT have a treadmill which has a screen showing your feet running.
It was really good to be able to watch your feet running while you run. I was pleased to see that it was really clear that I was landing on my forefoot. The shop assistant even commented on it.
I bought the Saucony Progrid Ride 5. I’ll let you know how I get on with them over the coming weeks.
