I have to find my toe spreader blocks and start using them again. I giggle almost every time I put them on that I bought them from Oprah/o dot co

If it works, it works! I swear by the socks now for any long run or trail run.

I’ve always felt my body does best with about an 18 hour fast, I simply don’t run well if I have much in my stomach. My problem has always been keeping on weight so I try to balance eating well and running. I know at 57, I have to be careful of not overdoing it as far as mileage goes.

Any HOKA ONE ONE wearers on here?

I was in the market for a new pair of road shoes, and saw they had the Clifton 6 on markdown, so decided to splurge and order a pair in LUNAR ROCK / NIMBUS CLOUD.

Have heard good things about them for flat footers and supination, so decided to give them a shot.

Current daily shoe is a Brooks ghost 12. Have had them for about a year now and love them!

I'm a shoe nerd but I've never tried these, but I do know people that recently switched to them from other shoes and do like them. I'm a little nervous of the high stack height, but the forefoot to heel drop is kind of in my wheelhouse of what I like personally.

Stack height worried me as well. The cushion is actually really nice. Put about 9 miles on them this morning and they feel great!

Going to give them a few weeks to break in, but so far so good.

Good news! Yeah, most of my running is trail now days so the stack height makes me irrationally fearful of ankle rolling on rocky surfaces. I [socially distanced] trail ran with a buddy of my yesterday on a pretty rooted and rocky trail yesterday, he just added Hoka Trail Goats to his rotation and loves them.

I really should get into trail running, easier on the joints.

Not to sound like a bitch, but I hate snakes and other critters. And Living in central Florida they are EVERYWHERE, so I have avoided it. There are a few nice trails around here though, but I've only biked them.

Give it a shot!

I like the variability of it so there is a lot of different muscle engagement you don't get with road running too, plus as you mentioned it does seem to treat my body better. I find there's a nice sense of nature and isolation on a nice secluded trail, but at the same time there is some mental engagement that comes from planning lines, terrain obstacles, foot placement, etc. that I take enjoyment in.

Trust me, often times I'm a nervous thinking about snakes so I understand. I'm in the DC area and the venomous snake list is probably way down compared to Florida. Luckily, I haven't had any encounters with timber rattlers or copperheads here, but I've been told by a herpetologist friend that they've likely been all around me haha...super re-assuring.

Sorry for the late response, I usually run 12-15 miles a week and do intervals. I find that running 6-8 minutes and walking 1 works well for me.

Jordan's World what is the update on those kicks bruh? One of these days I'll actually get a decent pair of running shoes. Right now I just rock the nike pegasus 35s, they're solid, but as we all know Nike is not known for their running shoes.

Nike has had quite a turn around in the last 2-3 years.

I prefer a light shoe to run in, probably because of my Track and Field days. I have a neutral stride and like the Nike and Adidas offerings but would like to hear others opinions.

ON Running Cloudflow very good shoe and favorite running shoe presently.
Like to alternate shoes on run days my other being New Balance Beacon which came with the worst insert.

ON Cloudflow no hotspots very comfortable on 10+ mile runs.
I'm Neutral my On's are normal width and feel perfect.

My last Adidas was an early Adizero years ago. ON is just another different level.

I'm loving the latest Altra Escalante Racer, super comfortable upper and light. I have a pretty big rotation of shoes going right now and they've become my favorite normal day shoe. They are zero drop though, if that's an issue.

https://www.altrarunning.com/shop/me...E&gclsrc=aw.ds

I typically rotate between those, Nike Zoomfly's, and Nike Vaporfly (4% and NEXT%) for fast ego days, but I like the Altras for a more normal low stack height shoe. I wouldn't mind giving On's more time, I've briefly used Cloudflows on demo runs.

cotmfk or anyone else who uses RunKeeper:

I just don't understand my updates.

Time, 6:02 Distance 1 km. Average pace 6:02. Current split pace: 5:20.
Time: 12:10, Distance 2 km. Average pace 6:05. Current split pace: 6:50
Time: 18:18, Distance 3 km. Average pace 6:06. Current split pace: 7:02.

WTF is happening with split pace calculations????? I'm pretty much picking them up and putting them down the same as before.

You're not wrong. Something is wrong with their calculations for sure. I've used a stop watch (old school handheld) when trying to actually calculate split times instead of relying on the app.

Edit: Just thinking about this now - maybe there is a way to edit what they define as a "split." Maybe you can say for it to calculate 100m, 1k, etc. as the distance used for the split. I'll have to look into this... (currently not running -injury since late July).
