Im slightly overweight after spending the summer recovering from a knee op. Ive had meniscectomy on both my right and left knees. I am really enjoying my running since beig able to doso again but about a week and a half ago I pulled my calf, not too badly but will probably take another week or so to be OK to start again.
I have been looking at minimalist shoes and was wodnering if they are a good idea? I have a fairly neutral gait and run in Pegasus 28's. I am 'heavier' being about 87kg just now but once I lose my injury weight I will be about 84ish.
Question I have is whether minimalist shoes would be a good idea? I have been looking at kinvara as they seem to have a good write up and there are some decent deals on them. I have read about using them sparingly at first and building up but with my knees and weight are they a good idea?
Any advice or recommendations would be much appreciated, thanks.
