>Cross Training>Shoe recommendations (Not for runnng)
So I'm starting this HIIT class tomorrow. Circuit class with some cross fit type exercises, but without the "lifestyle" attitude. Should I just wear my regular running shoes (Brooks Defyance), or would some other sort of shoe be a good idea?
Race Plan: 8/21/14 - Saunders at Rye Harbor 10K - Goal: Sub 60 ** 10/26/14 - Loco Half - Goal: Sub 2:15 (cutoff)
Old Lady PRs: 5K 29:25 10/26/13 *** 10K ~1:01:30 4/27/14 1:05:37 1/1/14 *** HS-CC PR: 5K 22:28
I have cross training shoes for strength training. Cross trainers tend to have more lateral stability, which running shoes may not have. My cross trainers also are less cushioned than my running shoes. That said, you should be ok in running shoes.
thanks. first session was this morning. Mostly the running shoes seems ok, though during some of the side to side moves there was a little slippage. Might just need a half size smaller for the class.
