brooks hyperion is a racing flat, no? you know you love lightweight shoes when 6.4 ounces is "heavier" than what you're used to!  :P
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

Ordered a pair of those last week, expecting them by Friday:

Pretty fast and light for a boost shoe. Was tempted about racing flats / minimal shoes but I want my cushion, running when you are above 40yo and 190lbs demands that lol.

This is the specific color i chose, well to be accurate this specific color was off 50% so it was easy to choose them :D :

ya lol. hyperion is one of the lightest long distance racing flats around, and it feels heavy af to me. no idea how people run fast in these kinds of shoes. truly boggles my mind.

nice!!

you love that boost.

get some minimalist shoes if you have an area of nice hard packed grass/dirt around :D good way to go minimalist but have more protection due to the softer surface.  :ninja:

Yeah, i love boost with passion! Feels like the good old zoom but better, softer and firmer at the same time, that foam is magical!
As for minimal shoes and surfaces to run... there is an actual track and field stadium right next to where i live. But i am not sure i'll use it for now, this running around the neighborhood seems much more interesting, less boring. Its a seaside neighborhood, not many buildings, it is at the edge of the domestic block, just park and trees and sea all around for the most part, it is really lovely to run at that scenery.

ah that sounds like a great place to run.

as for the track, if you started focusing on trying to improve overall speed etc, it would be used more for intense/specific workouts, so like 1x/wk after you've been running for a while. so mostly enjoyable scenic runs, and one hamster wheel day. track surfaces are still pretty hard. definitely not as hard as roads/sidewalk, but way harder than grass/dirt. harder surfaces are a huge difference to me now. Getting very used to grass/dirt/mulch, absolutely love it. It's all I want to run on now :D Need to enter more XC races. :ninja:
