    Great video! I run in plated shoes (both carbon and nylon) and I do feel faster in them (but that might be the midsole component and not the plate itself). I don't use carbon plated for training regularly but this past week I did a lot of fast runs in next% and 4% fk and some other runs in nylon plated shoes (Endorphin speed and glideride) and I noticed a little pain in my arch. Could this be a product of using stiffer shoes too much? Is it just overtraining or weakness? Thanks doc!
