Back to Nike Vomero 5
I guess the answer is one of each. Alternate between the shoes. It's better anyway to have two pair of shoes. Giving the shoes a day off, allows the cushioning time to expand back to the original shape. This helps the shoe to absorb impact. The shoes can also thoroughly dry between runs. All these little details help, especially during long distance runs.
Oh, one trick to help you extend the distance you run. Always finish the mile you started. If your planning on running about 3 miles and your at 3.25 go to 4. That last three quarters of a mile is a bonus. Think of it that way and it's easy!
Another thing I like to do, when running longer distances on a track, is run the far outside lane. On my track the inside lane is .25 of a mile, the outside lane is close to .3 of a mile. Every four laps is 1.2 miles when running the outside lane. Meaning you run fewer total laps while still covering the same distance.
