Well I'm half size up in Boston Boost, Adios 2 and Adios Boost (all UK 10) compared to Nike Zoom Elite (9.5), but then all my Adidas shoes are race shoes, and I think I'm happy with them being a little more snug than the Nike which I used for everyday training, so maybe that means a whole size up for the same fit.
Padams - Sounds like you're in good shape. May the spirit of DanA be with you at the weekend! (Although I hope there are no drips involved.)
TT - Much better! Actually I'll be mixing up my metric and imperial during the race itself. The plan is to keep the Garmin in miles (display: lap pace/time/distance) but with 5k splits on the pace band. A final 1.5 miles @ 5:31 would be nice.
Muss - Sorry to hear about the continued shin problems. Definitely a good idea to bin things if it's affecting form. Fingers crossed for you.
Having followed a similar pattern to last year's training but with more miles, the taper plan will be almost identical, since it worked very well last year, and I have the exact same pattern of prep races, i.e. wk1: 55 miles incl. Wissey Half Marathon (I did Maidenhead HM same weekend last year) wk 2: 50 miles incl. club 5,000m on Thursday & 12M @ MP on Sunday wk 3: 45 miles incl. Aldershot relays on Sunday wk 4: 18 miles + race (single sessions: 6 x 400m, 3M @ MP, easy jog + carb load
In fact, a small adjustment to the schedule today. Some minor 2-day DOMS in the quads from the North Downs on Sunday, so just a single session today, 2M @ MP + 3 x 1M on the track.
My garmin did a similar thing..... Fixed with good quality duct tape cut into strips..... Sorted....
Same here. Sounds like the same problem I had with my 610 which I think is the same strap. But never really felt happy with it for various reasons, not least the lack of comfort of the strap, so I recently replaced it with a 220 which I much prefer. Way more comfortable strap, lighter, nice display, better buttons. Slightly fewer functions (e.g. no virtual partner) but has absolutely everything I need and also appears to have better satellite pick-up.
