Ok so been out for some long runs over the last 2 months. Built up to 6 hours of mountain running, constant ascent and descent. Even spent 2hrs running road, never again if I can help it. After using minimal running shoes for over a year don't think I can run in anything else now. Cushioned, supported and raised heel shoes cause me pain and feel uncomfortable and heavy. Tarawera 100k is 3 weeks away so it's time to taper. New Balance are supplying me with their new Minimus trail shoe, a shoe developed with Vibram addressing the need to get back to near as barefoot running.
