Sunday Morning I decided to do a little trail run, so I looked for a pair of shoes for the run:
- Maybe 5-fingers KSO
No not today
- Montrail Streaks
- My old Montrails
- What about the Montrail Rockrigde
- I've even got a pair of Salomon Wings
He tried to tell me he wanted to use them for 'Tail Running' (chasing your tail) but I told him they were for 'Trail Running'. The shoe in Question is the new Hi-Tec V-Lite Infinity
After getting the shoes off Peanut I headed to Silvermine... My run was a 9.5km loop up to the Dam for a swim and back to the car. It's a great little loop to put the shoe though their paces. Only problem was me, The climb up was slow and I didn't feel as if running was possible, but that was me...I guess I was feeling the effects of Saturdays race. The shoes found the path and it didn't seem to matter that I had no energy to find the best footing, the shoes enjoyed having stones under them.
The run back was a different story, as I had loosened up and with gravity on my side I took off. Leaping over rocks and swerving round the corners I felt like a real trail runner again...I think I'm going to be doing a lot of running in these shoes...
That's quite a collection of shoes. I just got some Vibram 5 Fingers (the same black ones at the top), but I'm a little hesitant to run in them. Right now, it's definitely too cold to take them outside, but I do like them for rock climbing (indoor rock gyms).ReplyDelete
Start by trying them for a short easy run on the treadmill... who know you might enjoy them.ReplyDelete
