Should I wear lighter shoes only in races?

Runner's World (UK) - - TRAINING -

It’s wise to do some of your train­ing in them, too. You may ex­pe­ri­ence more im­pact fa­tigue in a race if you’re not ac­cus­tomed to shoes with less cush­ion­ing.

Wear­ing lighter shoes will also help to get you in bet­ter race shape by en­abling higher qual­ity train­ing. A lighter, more re­spon­sive shoe will slightly de­crease the en­ergy cost of run­ning. This should en­able you to quicken your ca­dence, which will boost your race prepa­ra­tion. Use them only twice a week, on non-con­sec­u­tive days, for your speed/in­ter­val work.
