Introducing the Kayano 20's!!!
I cannot thank Carol enough for blogging about her experience with The Running Company Geelong - after reading about her experience I decided to give them a go as I've got almost 600kms clocked up on one pair & 500kms on the other current pairs. They won't get me through the Marathon let alone the training!!
Bree who looked after me on Saturday was fabulous. I spent probably an hour in the shop trying on all different shoes running on the treadmill with each pair & reviewing my running style in slow motion to make sure we had the best possible shoe, giving me the best possible alignment.
Once we narrowed it down to two she had me run with one on each foot & then reverse then so they were on opposite feet to completely confirm which one felt better. The Kayano 20's were the clear winner for comfort & fit & will be perfect for the Marathon with the extra cushioning in the heel. While I'm a midfoot runner, as the distance increases & you get more tired, apparently you tend to be heavier on your heels (according to Bree - but it makes sense!!).
Tested then out this morning & ran a PB over 5kms. The felt great. I'll definitely wear them on my long run Saturday. Thank you Bree & The Running Company Geelong - you ROCK!!!!!
