I've been running weeks 1-7 on the pavement and around week 4 had gait analysis and invested in some road running shoes. Now the drier weather is here I've been running weeks 8 and 9 round my local park (which I'm really enjoying) in the same shoes, and haven't had any problems. The ground is firm and all the puddles have gone.
So my question is, do I really need trail shoes? I'll probably will never run over the park when it's wet or muddy, I'll stick to the pavements. So are they really necessary?
Thanks for any responses.
