We have Copenhagen's 6 hour race coming up on Saturday and I need some advice.
I have been training in the same shoes for years...
The Saucony Grid Hurricane 7
But they are quite heavy for race shoes. They have also stopped making them and I have only one pair left.
Then I bought these shoes (Mizuno Wave Rider 12)
and after running in them for a while today, my shin splints (anterior tibilias tendonitis) seemed to come back in my left leg (but it's hard to say if it was the shoes or lots of running over the weekend).
The best shoes I have ever run in are the Mizuno Wave Ascend 3.
I could wear these, but they are trail running shoes and we will be running 6 hours on asfalt.
Should I wear one of these pairs (perhaps the one in the middle since it's so huge) or go out and quickly buy new shoes before the race?

"Children are fascinated by the ordinary and can spend timeless moments watching sunlight play with dust. Their restlessness they learn from you. It is you who are thinking of there when you are here. It is you who thinks of then instead of now. Stop. Let your children become the teachers and you the student" - William Martin
