So i recently joined a running club and i now have access to an olympic grade athletics track, something which i have for a long time wanted to do is get some 1500 and 5000 meter times in at a very solid pace, i do all my distance running on the road, track running is boring at anything over those distances,
My question is about spikes, i've looked at a few middle distance track shoes, and even the long distance ones, and they offer little in the way of cushioning compared to the big old road shoes we wear, i'm thinking this wont be too much of an issue as tracks are not as harsh as the road and the distances are significantly lower,
But has anyone else done any mileage in track shoes? did you feel like your feet were spoiled by big road shoes? any issues? what spikes were you using? pyramid, needles, compression tier etc.
any tips on adjusting running style?
