i,ve decided to jump off the fence about heel striking and forefoot running. Researched and read everthing out there on Newton Trainers, Unfortunatly mostly Newtons own bloggs/forums. Gone and spent what i consider to be huge amount £120 on the Newton motion 2009 trainers, but thats still a fraction of what a pair of Laboutons heels would cost, tee he.
I,ve always been a heel striker because, thats how i was told to run by my P.E. teacher, daft isn't it being told how to run because if a hungry tiger was after you, you certaintly wouldn,t hang around for some to tell you how run, it,s instinctive, but i do wounder if my P.E. teacher hadn,t been so intent on yelling rember JT heel to toewould my style have been any different ? ? ?
Newton trainers has given me the option to explore a whole new running style and an interest on improving my form, i,m still in the transition period of alternating between my support nike,s and the Newtons, all the hype is right ,i.m running for longer with less fituge and making some new PB,s. My nike,s will soon be used for walks and scruffing about in and my Newtons will be in pride of place.
There seems to be very few reviews on this product,so i hope this helps any one on that fence, two gripe's,the laces are short and not's let forget the price .
