Has anyone else been tempted by a pair of racing shoes or lightweight trainers in the hope it might make them a little faster.
I've been running in my Adidas Supernovas for a while now and am satisfied with them. However whenever I open a running magazine or go into a running shop I can't help looking at the shoes that runners world says are for speed merchants only and wondering what difference a pair would make. Would I get faster or just end up injured - or both?!
At 12 and a half stone I am (according to most shops) heavier than most runners and apparently I do pronate a bit - so I should probably be sensible and stick with something like the Supernovas - but in truth I know that I wont really be satisfied til I've tried something lighter and got injured.
Has anyone else suffered the same temptation, did you give in to it, what happened?
