HSS - forget about it?

Basically I would like to use fill flash with a Nikon SB700 or third party (Godox TT350 or 860 ) at HSS for controlled action (runner) shots with a 70-200 2.8 lens at F 2.8 or 4
I started this thread at the Nikon FF forum https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/61051497

But then I read that the flash loses at lot of power in HSS mode. Are regular flashes simply to weak for my scenario?
Should I forget about the whole thing, or maybe just take a chance with the regular 1/200s sync speed and hope motion blur won't ruin the shots.

Thanks for any input.
