Seems like I'm ready to go at it again. I tested out running on pavement today with Altra Olympus and didn't have any pain for five miles. The new shoes seem to be a winner, good cushion without the problems that Hokas had. I'm anxious to try them on the trails. I think I just about ready. Being careful.
Afternoon run on true trails. The Olympus shoes worked great, looks like a winner. All my complaints about Hokas are gone in this shoe. I'm hopeful.
