As I said in the title, I consider myself a midfoot striker: I land with both the ball of the feet and the heel al the same time. We can say I land with the whole outside of the feet. This happens with standard shoes like Saucony Ride 4 or Mizuno Elixir 7, or even with the 8mm Triumph 9 (in this case, just more smoothly).
Thing is, I changed to a forefoot strike when I started to run in my Invo8 f-lite 195 (2-3mm offset). I began the transition with them some moths ago. At the beggining is was very nice: feeling of the terrain was lovely; landing was clearly smoother (or softer, I don`t know how to define it).
But after some running seassons I started to experience calf pain. Finally, I developed a plantar fascitis that has only been removed some weeks ago.
Question is: do minimalist shoes worth another try for me? or may I consider my gait is good enough to risk another injury triyng the Inov8 again? A third way maybe to start another trnsition but steping on kinvaras or brooks pure first.
Thaks for reading this :D
P.S.: Pete, I am reading your book at this moment. Very interesting so far, I mean it. Do you consider to translate it into spanish language? Here in Spain there would be a demand, and I guess in South Amenrica there will be even more.
