I have been trying to run a more efficient style by mid foot striking instead of heel striking. So I bought Vivobarefoot evo 2 and trail breath ( as both were just £25 each on sportsdirect) this seemed to be going ok I had sore calves for few weeks but that cleared and i did a few runs feeling great, but now my feet are sore including a pain accross the top of left foot which is sore even when walking.
I know i probably pushed to hard and i am wondering wether i should try a more cushoned shoe but one that still encourages mid foot striking. I have been looking at nike frees, Sacauny KINVARA 3 and brooks pure flow. I don't want to spend more money than needed and also I want to reuce risk of further injury. What are peoples view on this. Are the vivo's too extreme for me just now. I feel i am must still be doing some heel striking and my cadence is no where near 180, probably closer to 100-120 ( although i have not tried to test yet, this is just how it feels.
