The Hoka Effect
Join Eric Orton Running Academy
Hey - thanks for the feedback!! I really appreciate it! I am looking for your opinion. I really think highly of your knowledge and expertise. I am constantly obsessing over form and wonder what i did wrong because my running was going so well. I have been working on strength but will be more diligent. Thanks again!!
Help! I had meniscus surgery for a sandwich tear. It went well and I was able to run trails and hills for an hour no pain on Asiacs Cascadias. Then I decided to head out on the pavement for 75 mins and was in such supreme pain10/10 afterwards but little swelling. Was on New Balance Pure Flow. Day 3 now and I still have specific pain only 4/10 now with certain moves. Have been cycling a bit. Looking at the Hoka Huaka shoes with only 2mm drop as I really think that for my knee - I think I need the extra cushioning for when I have to train on pavement or track. Although I won't be doing anything for a couple of weeks. I don't see anything in the video above. Not sure what I am looking for. Read The Cool Impossible. Know Eric's opinion but I need a solution. Any opinions???
I haven't run further than marathon distance, but my current long distance trail shoe is the Altra Lone Peak 1.5. It works out okay, though my foot slips around during the downhills. I've used the B2R Trail Shoe for shorter distances and it works great! I'll have to do more foot strengthening exercises before I'm ready to use my B2R Trail shoes for longer distances. Eric is the B2R endurance/mountain shoe still in the design phase? Or have you gotten to the prototype stage yet? Can't wait to see that one!
As I've mentioned earlier, would be great to have B2R endurance/mountain shoes, but my guess is that it is not going to happend in a one week ;) So which shoes (brand/model) would you recommend for this purporse?
Great discussion! I did an endurance run in shoes as thick as the Hokas and have found that the reduced proprioception is really dangerous, even on non-technical trails. And the thick shoes also make a minor leg length discrepancy due to alignment of my hips much worse! Yeah, if a fast finish time during a 100 miler is what you want, these might do the trick, but just like Gniewomir said, in the long run the effect could be worse. Think of the damage to the joints and muscles and bone. I'd rather finish a before the cutoff and be able to run more races than rather than risk future injuries just to have a winning finishing time.
Thank you Coach for the replay. Yes, that's what I am affraid of too. People rarely look ahead, just want to have the results 'here and now'.
I am looking forward for those B2R long run shoes :)
