So I am going to be coming back from an injury (knee) that has sidelined me for the past 7 or so weeks. I got an MRI and x-ray and the doctor said that there was no tears or damage and that it was just an overuse injury and he has cleared me to run. Well since I am going to be coming back to running slowly I’ve decided I want to try minimalist running. Having read a lot of articles on the benefits I think it makes a lot of sense. I was looking at the Nike Free Run+ and am wondering if any of you have used it and what your experience with it is. I have also thought about just using my racing flat (air zoom streak XC). What do you guys think would be the better option, keeping in mind that my transition back into running is going to be nice and slow anyways.
Spark Notes: Coming back from a 7 week injury and am going to be gradually starting to run again. Should I use Nike free Run+ or racing flats for a minimalist experience.
