Compared to your plush and reliable everyday running shoes, a lightweight, energetic trainer like the Launch 3 can really make you feel light on your feet when your training program calls for an uptempo run or a track workout.
If you run in the same pair of shoes multiple days in a row, your kicks do not benefit from “rest days.” Day after day, the midsole of the shoe is compressed, and requires 36-48 hours to fully recover back to its springy self. By having more than one pair of shoes in rotation, you will give your shoes ample rest, extending the life of each pair. (Your legs will notice the difference!)
A recent study showed that runners who consistently rotate two or more pairs of shoes reduce their chance of injury by almost 40%! There are lots of variables at play, but the most relevant is that different styles of shoes will require you to engage different muscles when running.
Just like it will give you a boost on your harder workouts, the Launch 3 can help you put mind over matter on race day this fall, whether you’re lining up for a neighborhood 5k or the New York Marathon.
