Stronger Feet Make Faster Marathon Runners, Part 1: Skips for Height & Distance



Yesterday I did a 3 hour 20 min run in the hills at an easy pace 65-70% of max heart rate, well it was meant to be easy but my legs were still a little stiff and sore from my epic 2 hour midweek tempo run, so it seemed like a really long run!!!

I was wearing my modified Nike Free's, they feel great on shorter, faster runs BUT i could really feel the hammering to my feet and quads after the first hour, I made sure i was running with good form, but nothing really helped, I'm thinking I need a shoe that is light flexible but with good forefoot padding for my really long hill run, any recommendations?

Yes rob I used the Newton in my last Marathon, but I find them a bit on the heavy side, but yes they might work ok on long runs!
