Camaraderie Rules ;o)
trail shoes - got some Mizuno x10s last yr but tho seem really comfortable gave up with then coz of endless blisters - even after just 30 mins if trying to push it. trying again this yr with compeed as prevention rather than cure and success so far - but not been further than 7 miles in them yet.
will look out for inov8 etc but usually when i ask for shoes size 4 in the shops they look at me like i'm an alien !
Nothing like a shoe debate - one man's platinum is anothers laudanum
To many people to thank for all this off road info......but loving it going to use an old pair of my road shoes for a little foray in the hills me thinks tomorrow and find some mud!!!! Then when I get paid next week will invest in a proper pair of off road shoes!!!
Couple of 5mile runs for me this week plan on doing a 10miler Sunday some at half mara pace ready for next Sundays conwy half
May? Are you sure? It'll be hotter than ever, then.
Haven't been out running - got an achilles tendon issue at the moment - don't know what that's all about.
It's funny how the mile or three of offroad on this one gives this thread such an offroad emphasis. What about the 23 miles of road?? That bit seems to get ignored!!
Nurse Gladys - nice of you to pop in. Did you run SNOD10 in the end? My blisters may be legendary, but it's fame I'd rather do without! Going to be doing a lot of experimenting over the next year or so until I've eliminated the problem. I've got lots of long runs and challenges I want to do and that one issue is hampering progress. I'm planning to do HP40 btw so see you there!

DM ....i think it would be fairly easy for me to talk myself into the marlborough 33 ....i dont even seem to need any help and as for Snod ......you know you want to i mean who wouldnt
Lets do it .... Marlborough that is... sounds like a reasonable distance to me. I've sort of promised a friend I'd support him doing Great South Run which is the same weekend as Snod next year.... but his friendship isn't that important lol!
(((Brer))) What a bunch of assholes!!! My friend had his caravan nicked from a park too.... total tosspots!!! sorry...but it just makes me mad!
DM - you always make me laugh, thank you
RWMS-you and me doing a May marathon then..almost wish I had gone for Stratford now, it's just I liked the look of Windermere one cos it has nice views of hills!! Don't know what it is like otherwise.
NQ-map reading, that is what puts me off the dark side too..at least on a road marathon you just keep following the tarmac and signs.
Hope all recovery runs going well, just done 12 miles in wind and rain but feel so much better for it, been a crap old week but tis over now-nobody died!!
Yes, best to take one even if you don't know how to use it lol
It may yet clash with something else I do in mid-May time which sadly doesn't involve threesomes.
NQ2- get orienteering compass if you can. Oh, and don't follow T Rex whatever else you do Seriously though, map reading skills such as using tick off features are likely to be of more value to you than compass skills- unless you're planning on going over open country through thick clag....
7m for me tonight- the furthest I've been since Snod
