Buy Newton running shoes to improve speed/ impact on heel ? Which one?

Newtons tend to be narrow which defeats the purpose of shoes designed for forefoot running.

Just carry my phone on weekend long runs.  Mainly for the Husband Tracker app.

Could you had me please?  I will be wearing Vibrams so shouldn't be hard to spot.  Mile 16 was where I started to lose it back in 2013 so good to have a boost there.

I use vivobarefoot shoes for work.  They are zero drop, black and look like normal shoes.

i also use their brown shoes for casual.

Ibuprofen is not good for long term use and evidence shows that it slows bone healing.

Entered for it last week.  Will be my first half in nearly two years. Is it hilly or flat?

Roads are much better than treadmill.  As well as being boring always very hot and stuffy in the gym.  Plus outside surface is much better for your feet.

Suggest you follow your GP's advice and rest it for a week.  I had a bit of pain in the top of my foot a few months ago.  Gave it a week's rest then gradually started running again.  Rolled my calves a lot and avoided compression gear.  Fine now.

Don't go to AE.  If you check the news they are busy enough at the moment without any more time wasters turning up.  A & E's are for EMERGENCIES only.  It's in the name.

Probably just soft tissue injury that can be cured with a bit of rest.  If you are concerned go to your GP.

Lightweight Road Trainers?

Although they market themselves as being for natural runners, Newtons tend to have a narrow toe box which isn't good for forefoot landing.  You want something light with a wide toe box.
