Do YOU put on totally different Operating Footwear for Totally different Sorts of Runs?
I do! And that’s one of many questions from this week’s @RunEatRepeat Q&A. I’m sharing a number of the solutions right here so I can hyperlink to extra data as wanted.
Query: Favourite Operating Footwear? Do you put on totally different ones for various working aims?
Reply: My favourite trainers are whichever ones I’m carrying that day! My all time favourite trainers are the Brooks Tie Dye Operating Footwear from some time again. I believe that mannequin was tremendous widespread and stayed round for some time however I don’t see it obtainable now. I’ll hyperlink to my faves under.
To reply the second a part of the query – Sure, I put on totally different trainers for various kinds of runs. However I ran a number of half marathons and full marathons earlier than I began rotating my sneakers. So, I don’t assume it’s obligatory. You’ll be able to run in ONE pair of sneakers – simply be sure you get a brand new pair as soon as these hit their max mileage.
Additionally, trainers are costly and the costs appear to be going up quicker than the costs of different gear. (I believe that’s due to Nike promoting $300 trainers and different corporations realizing they will improve costs and other people pays.)
When you don’t have a number of pairs of trainers – not less than have a pair of sneakers which can be JUST FOR RUNNING, and a pair of sneakers that you simply put on for strolling, cross coaching, errands, and so on. This manner you don’t put additional miles in your trainers and so they’ll last more.
When you’re working for normal health, weight reduction or to coach for a race with a aim of ending – you don’t want various kinds of trainers. It’s good if in case you have 2 pairs of your fave trainers to rotate, however they don’t must be differing kinds since you’re most likely not doing quite a lot of difficult velocity runs.
When you’re targeted on endurance and/or ending a race and your plan is principally miles with out speedwork – you don’t want various kinds of trainers, however 2 pairs of your fave sneakers are nice to rotate.
When you’re coaching for a race and doing speedwork, lengthy runs and straightforward runs – it’s possible you’ll profit from various kinds of trainers you possibly can put on based mostly on the kind of run you’re doing that day. (Once more, it’s not obligatory however is nice for those who can afford it.)
My Favourite Operating Footwear for straightforward runs are snug and sturdy. I rotate these quite a bit simply relying on what I’m feeling that day/week. I put on these for lengthy runs too. My go to run sneakers on this class are:
Altra Rivera Running Shoes – These are so snug and have an incredible vast toe field which is nice to keep away from black toenails throughout marathon coaching.
HOKA Running Shoes Bondi 7 – These are probably the most cushiony and light-weight sneakers ever. I began carrying them (once more) after I broke my foot and wished additional cushion to guard it. They’re so mild I put on them for straightforward runs and strolling Diego.
My Favourite Operating Footwear for lengthy runs, speedwork, tempo runs, races – are often a impartial shoe, cushioned and light-weight. These are my most versatile trainers. When you solely have ONE pair of trainers I’d recommend or not it’s one thing much like these:
My Favourite Operating Footwear for speedwork are designed for velocity runs and infrequently mild, extra minimal and have the next base. Some examples are:
And for strolling Diego, cross coaching and life I put on retired trainers or one other pair of sneaks that I don’t put on to run.
