So the Cortanas offer enough support for longer runs? It will be interesting to see how noticeable the difference in drop is. I assume it's not a bad thing to regularly interchange between 4mm and 8mm drops during the course of a week...
The last few years I've been loyal to the Saucony Triumph since the Triumph 7. I've always got on well with these boys and I guess part of me thinks I should stick with what I know, however....
Does anyone have experience of the Saucony Cortana? Are these a viable alternative? I'm not quite sure where these trainers fit in the Saucony range. Are they suitable for longer distances/marathons?
I currently use my Triumphs for all running (short efforts, threshold sessions, longer runs) I race in lightweights but only for 10k distance or less. Could the Cortanas be considered an alternative to the Triumphs, or are they more suited to shorter the stuff?
Has anyone experience of both and could offer some comments on how they compare?
Last night: short speed session
Today: 30mins easy
Thurs: 6-7miles with about half at MP
Sat: Parkrun or similar
Sun: 13miles with middle 3/4 @ MP
Tues: Very short speed session
Thurs: 5 miles easy
Sat: short jog
Hopefully by then I'll have decided what pace to run at!
Bit late joining the thread but glad to see a few other will be making the trip at the end of the month!
Flying out Friday from Heathrow @ 19:25 and back from Frankfurt @ 18:50 on Sunday evening. Staying at the Dormero Hotel.
All the comments already mentioned are very welcome, so thanks for that! Hopfully the weather will be kind too.
I missed a big chunk of training in July so feel I'm lacking a decent base, but my last half (22nd Sep) and 10m (last weekend) were good so I'm hopeful of a decent time; just not sure how best to pace it! Hate finishing and feeling I could have done more, but at the same time, without a decent base it could be risky to aim for (close to) a PB and blow up at 20 miles!
