- I pronate so I've been using nike lunarglide and lunareclipses and found that my knee problems arent as bad as they used to be now my foot is more cushioned and locked in at the heel. Managed a 90 min half and 3.30 marathon in the lunareclipse 2s.
- A few weeks ago I was given a pair of nike zoom streak 2's (racing flats) for free and wondering where I should insert them for training/racing. I've tested them out for a 5 and 10k training run and found I really enjoy how light my feet felt, certainly felt a bit more nimble towards the end of the run, but when I looked down I could see I was pronating, mainly I assume because the lack of support in the upper and heel clip was allowing my foot to do what it wanted.
So taking into account my times, is there a real benefit to busting out the racing flats on race day only? Or should I keep them for track speed sessions? Hopefully someone with similar times and pronation has dealt with this before. I'd stick with my dynamic support shoes on long training runs, but im obviously loosing energy and feel for the road in those shoes. Even if someone said there is a chance of an extra few seconds a mile in racing flats, that might be enough for me. I've recently lost a few kilos and seen my times go down, so im a full convert to the 'lighter runner is a faster runner' mantra.
