Targeting a spring race? Steve Smythe is here to answer your questions!
I am really struggling with my footwear.
I am taking part in my 3rd Marathon in April and having been through an injury last year, was advised to stop wearing my orthotics and change to a mid/ forefoot shoe which I did.
I am up to 14 - 15 miles as my long run at the moment and am really struggling with calf and achilles tightness. It is not actually painful when I run but I can certainly feel it the next day.
I am looking to run under 3.40 this year and really need to get my shoes issues sorted before the monster miles kick in.
Any advise you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
