Following this thread with much interest! I bought a pair of Adidas Kanadia (women's obviously) and would agree that they are probably ok for about a mile on Tarmac max. I actually don't like them very much and am looking for a new pair of off-roaders. I've heard people rave about their Salomons and Inov-8s but I wondered what you lovely folks would recommend.
(I am a mild over-pronator on one foot and neutral on the other...don't ask!)
Been looking on the US RW forums and found this explanation:
Blood flow changes to keep you warmer (more to the surface if you are a little cold, switching to mostly to the core if you get REALLY cold). Muscles tighten up, and if it is cold enough you do not produce energy as quickly.
Seems feasible...any scientists out there who care to elaborate/ comment?
Not sure, cougie...we've been doing mid-late afternoons and the light has just been wonderful (we're very lucky in that we have the most fantastic scenery where we live), but I suppose the general reduction in daylight hours and intensity may be having an effect on our brains.....
