Happy New Year all. I’m going to get the vibrant back out and start building up in them again... fingers & toes crossed I’m struggling with shin splints again and when I ran in vibrant this didn’t happen so here’s hoping....

Just been out and done 3m further than planned but I felt so good - the last few runs my right leg outer shin/calf has been ridiculously tight and almost 7 miles before it settled on my last run today a little tightness but nowhere near as bad! I do think these shoes are right for me.

still slowly slowly build up and I won’t be wearing them at Kielder this year haha.

Chrisull - re: your post in the 3:15 thread about the Zoom Streak 6. I'm thinking of getting them but the 8mm drop puts me off. What are they like? Light?

They are light yes, 186g, but more importantly they feel light. Because I rarely run in zero drop , (usually 4mm kind of thing), it doesn't feel too intrusive. You lose the proprioception as its got sort of hole in the sole, but it feels responsive and not clunky like an average shoe.

(see the undersole here sportsshoes.com , the flouro green is actually not at the same level)

I presume Chris got the Streak as a cheaper alternative to the vaporfly. Are you sure they're the right streak?

Answered my own question. They are the right ones (the 6 rather than the LT4).

Yes, they're apparently quite different (6 vs LT4)
