A great prize & challenge
That's Fab Paul!! only run related thing I have ever won, is Club member of the year of our running club!!!
Can't wait to hear how they all got on today!! high as a kite and kitted up to the eyeballs I should thing!
Well done Paul!!
I won a trophy in vets category once...but I was the only entry! Ha ha
Tigger/Malcs I just put my pitch in on forum 6,
Anyone heard from any of the winners yet? looking forward to them all coming on here all excited. Hope they do. I wouldn't want them to feel that they can't. They should be able to enjoy their moment in the limelight!
Personally, have got on with things after the disappointment of last week and got two good runs in this weekend. 5.7 miles at 7:48mm yesterday and 10.88 miles at 7:30mm average today with 6 at MP or below (7:17 - 7:25mm).
Feeling pleased with myself and highly motivated!
I forgot to take my watch to work a couple of days the week before last and it was quite refreshing. I might do all my recovery running that way!
4th lady without even racing - impressive!
Hows everyone doing tonight?
Thought I would check in quickly and say hi! Had a really good day today with the store day and photo shoot with the guys from Asics and Runnersworld. Hope my video was better than the one at bootcamp! Met Steve properly and had a chat about the training program that's going to be put into action from tomorrow! As soon as I have it I will post more!
Found some really interesting stuff out with regards to my bio mechanics while having the gait analysis. I've had orthotics since I started running properly some 11-12 years ago as I over pronated heavily, discovered that I've strengthened my muscles to such a degree I don't need the orthotics anymore and I am now a neutral runner!
Wow, what a day! It's been a long one but absolutely amazing from start to finish!
Seriously, everyone needs to get themselves down to that Oxford Street store - it is out of this world and the staff there were absolutely great - so friendly and knowledgeable and didn't complain once about us completely taking over their store and getting under their feet for the whole day
How has everyone's weekend been?
Alex, Ady - great to meet you guys 'properly' today!
just a word of a warning to those having a different kind of shoe to what they normally have..............be caerful and listen to your body.............
in the past the asics team have changed the shoes for all the runners and a few have gone on to develop injuries very quickly from the change.........
if you have been having problems and lots of injuries and niggles recently then it would make sense to change...........
but if you ahve been running injury free with what you are wearing at the momnet..........i would be very very reluctant to change now when you are in your peak training months.............
if it ain't broke don't fix it...............you might lose out on a shiny new pair of shoes but the physio costs and lose of training might add up to a hell of a lot.....
so if you change go carefully and look out for any problems that might occur......
i hope that this year none of you suffer from this problem............so does it all start tomorrow
39 seems very low ady.......did they explain the reasoning and research into going for a low mileage schedule as appossed to the normal ones..................even slow runners usually hitaround 50..
in the past the wisdom was that the long run never takes up more than half of your weekly total.........i am interested in the research into these new schedules and where they have been used and the success rate
Me and a fellow maltby runner before the start of the race. Unfortunately no action shots!
Sounds like you had a fabulous day guys. Really glad that you enjoyed it and have taken alot of advice home with you. Lets hope its the start of good things to come.
Hi Seren, was chatting to Katie from RW today - she was telling me lots of nice things about you
Thanks for the advice - will see how it goes in the new shoes!
Yep, training starts tomorrow - can't wait to get out there
If you've been injury free as a runner you'd have to be certifiable to change footwear strategy at this point.
Shady - what's your mileage been like for the last 8 weeks?
