Newtonrunning's Forefoot running shoe tech pt. 2......
so owners of newtonrunning.com running shoe. You know....the shoes for elitist specialists triathlon/runners like us?
*major running snob vibes*
Anyways, so its been a few months since you've owned your pair.....hows your running been like lately?
Since I start my thread about this months ago I am happy to say I am a regular runner now. I train whats considered light at about 20 to 30 miles a week.
So far I am extremely happy with the product. I even went ahead and ordered a second pair a half size larger to take care of my freakish right foot (it being larger than the left).
I love the barefoot style of running where you run on the forefoot or the balls of the feet. It protects my knees and heels from any pain. And yes, while it definately gives other muscles in my legs a workout not normally stressed for running I'm ok with it because those muscles were already strengthened through guess what?..........bicycling.
Any newton owners out there? Do any of you know if this product is comparable to say the..... asiscs gel stratus?
Anyways, my dream of someday doing a triathlon may one day come true. Although, I did chicken out of signing up for any of those amateur 5k races. I have to actually start doing those if I really want to do a big race in the future.
But its hard for me to overcome my fear of finishing dead last in a race behind grandma.......ya know?
