Touie - got off track there! Yeah, agree with Alistair. It is just part of the conditioning that you get through training.

thanks that makes me feel a bit better, I have been running in Merrell Mix master which are pretty similar feel wise to the NB110's but they are a bit roomier! I wasn't sure if they were giving me too much feel or if I would eventually get used to it, on Sunday pretty much every single stone I trod on was agony!!!

Touie: feet do get tougher. But I have to admit I've wimped out (relatively speaking) for Lake District trails: using Inov 8 Trailroc 235 rather than the VB Neo Trail which I use for other trails.

it's £29.99 for MT110 now at Newbalance.co.uk

Should I get it? I dont see if I will do something very technical trail at the moment, (as I cant find them near Canterbury anway).

Running with my new Merell Trail Glove now, great fit, I done my last week 24k run with it. It's kinda hard for me to buy shoe because I have a wide feet

Well I'm not intimidated by LLBs temper 

I'd definitely have a look at the Nathans, T2, since I moved from Camelbak to them, I found it to be a much more comfortable experience
