Hi all-- First off, apologies if I get my my technical terminology all wrong
I've just signed up for my first marathon in August, and as I'll need to be getting new shoes shortly, I'd love to have your advice on the following: So far, I've been running in Mizunos (now wave rider 15). They're perfect for my narrow feet (coming in different widths), and I love the fact I can feel the ground running in them. Here's the thing though: for the first 15k I land on my forefoot but as my legs get tired, I start using the mid foot as well, and finally the heel. Since the shoes offer little cushioning, I'm wondering if this can cause problems/injuries on the longer runs ahead, and if I should accept some cushioning in prep for the marathon (hate feeling any foam or fluff under my feet!). Any thoughts anyone, or suggestions for a different model? I'm a natural pronator.
