The front runners were probably averaging sub 5min miling, so he must have been at almost flat out pace to hold that big a lead over them, especially as his gait was affected by a niggle that week.. Not surprised he suffered one of the biggest meltdowns ever after. Did pretty well to finish I think.
have had the odd purchase from all of those, and also a weird co called "for runners by runners" (or something). They seem to refuse to reply to any correspondance, so you're always glad their stuff turns up.
Run and Become, round the corner from New Scotland Yard forever made me a little wary about in store experts who "watch you run" for their "analysis".
As the most experienced woman, judged from a 50metre run down the street, that my size 12s were like "flippers" and I actually needed 11 1/2. Not to mention her also kitting me out in a pair a guy with proper gait analysis technology 2months later said would probably have caused knee damage...as he put me back in the 12s I'd always worn!
I'm gutted I didn't stock up on the old Adios Adizero 2s. Love that shoe, and as I'm coming to the end of my last pair of them, still putting off the decision of what to do. Think I found one site only that had a pair at £75, In the marvellous gold too, but am too tight to go for them
Will have to work out what Adidas shoe is the equivalent
