    I second that. I've trained in Puma XC spikes for years and recently came back to them as my heel started to ache during the last season. They are much kinder to your feet; that's for sure. And to be honest, I can run about the same speed in them as I do in pure sprint spikes.

    Ummm. Achilles issues with a superstar wonder woman at this level hey? Wow - zer!

    And blaming it on the spikes? I love that too. Ms Elaine T is not only FAST like the tornado winds she knows what she is doing on the marketing front or she is truly has feet issues.

    Nike must be loving all the attention she is getting albeit their spikes are not as elite as Ms. ET.

    I get that ya all might be getting issues with your feet and achilles but do you really think Ms. ET is not getting the right therapy for her feet and massage and somehow this surprises me big time. Or as I originally suggested the media attention has been worth it suggesting flats when she knew darn well they were not FLAT.

    I dont think she called them flats. I think the media did.

    Yeah she called them flats straight after the race, then everyone jumped on the 'trainers' etc

    I think it maybe a nice financial ploy (if she isn't injured) being that the new elites and plate are Nikes new prime marketing tool and selling bucket loads for anyone to cast shade on them wold hurt, now for to wear them in London and win, win big! would be a massive thing that maybe she could boost her sponsorship funds!

    Obviously if she is injured to her Achilles etc then I agree a distance spikes does wonders, and one of my guys (older, bad shins history) is always in distance spikes and sprints (he is a sub 11 runner in these spikes)
