As an experiment i gave been using minimalist running shoes and forefoot running since last October is been using these basically zilch cushioning and around 3mm of sole

I have built up to 2 & 1/2 hours long run all the niggles i had have cleared, my legs and running style are much stronger and am getting some good times on my local lapped route
I dont advocate switching now but post Outlaw it might be worth a punt

It would be my pleasure

Ridgeback - I definitely should have taken the dog on the run then he wouldn't have eaten my bike helmet

Today I was going to swim and do a semi long bike ride but horrible smeels from outside drains have probably scuppered everything

Swim done at lunchtime, 1500mts in 36 mins, felt good but my shoulder is playing up now. I had a cortesone jab in it 4 weeks ago and it felt great after 24hrs, trouble is I overworked it at work and now I'm back to sqare one :-[
Was intending to run tonight but got a bout of CBA'sed so sat on my arse waching a load of crap on the telly, I really should have run

well done all!

Feeling OK with just a cough today but better than yesterday?? Oh well

Just back from Uni some 12hrs after leaving home this morning and still need to plan for tomorrow as I'm losing my double free 1st thing to an intro session for potential new students. Boo hiss.

had a crap week away, but been out for a nice hour run. spending most of the weekend moving my lil sisters house out of storage and into her new place. OK think I'll be doing it pretty much on my own too. must count as training somehow?
12/04/2013 at 18:53

Only counts as training if you have to take on nutrition (ie cake) every half hour

Been having a problem with my achiles recently so am giving running a rest but doing a bit more biking instead, so 53 miles done today, hopefully do 60 odd tomorrow and then 100 on Sunday.

12/04/2013 at 19:52

12/04/2013 at 22:10

Anyone advise about what to wear tomorrow

Weather says up to 15 in temperature but winds of 25mph+ with 40mph gusts! OMG!

Little chance of rain

I'm thinking pirate jacket over short cycle top - maybe wear a vest there to warm up, take it off before the main ride, then put it back on for the bike home?
