I've decided this year to do away with all support and cushioned shoes etc, and simply use a pair of Nike Vaporfly's to train in everyday, and throwing away all my expensive other shoes. I've had nothing but niggles for over a year now with these supposibly perfect running shoes that I keep getting recommended, pulls, strains all the rest of it... so thought, right lets let me feet and legs do what they did as a kid? Run without any interference.
Was speaking to my Dad about it and he's ran 32 minute 10k's in the 60's... and hardly suffered from injuries... this in a rubbish pair of trainers, no physio's, no fancy food or protein shakes...
So, the question is, do we now worry about things to much instead of just chucking a pair of trainers on and running?
Food intake, water intake, recovery, protein, gels, special shoes, iPods etc etc.... Ron Clarke Or Zatopek, did they use all this malarky?
Just seems to me, we're all getting a little bogged down in schedules and comfort wear etc...
DO WE REALLY NEED IT ALL? AND SHOULD WE JUST GO BACK TO BASICS?
I know one thing, it'd save alot of money!
