I loved my pair of GTS10s and they got me through many many runs long and short. I was really hoping that these would be the same.
They really weren't/aren't in my opinion. The ride is a lot firmer and theres not the support in the arch that the 10s gave me.
Needless to say I bought them at the start of december and despite getting me round a 16mile run having worn them in a bit they contributed heavily to me getting symptoms akin to shin splints. Which promptly disappeared after a couple of weeks in the old 10s.
I too am trawling the net for recommendations as to what could replace them. Though after another pb today i think the 10s might have a few miles in them yet.
Agree with you Jwheezy, one of the reasons why i feel in good shape this year compared to others is that ive got a lot psychologically stronger and think for most runners the 20ish mark n beyond is where this strength can help shave a bit of time of a pb.
Good luck to everyone tomorrow!!!!
Weather looks quite favourable too, was worried for a second we would have torrential rain and mega strong winds to contend with. Luckily for most of the race it is forecast sunny intervals
