Txs for the replies re Striders folks, it seems there is more than one way run a stride Being a bit of a stats freak I may well keep to repeatable reps/times and look for improvement over time.
Earlier in the year I managed to get up to 7.5 miles in my Bikilas before stopping. On Monday I stupidly ran 5k in them and not run since - it (still) feels as if my legs were broken just above my ankles and am walking on broken legs
Steph, good to hear your back running, you've not had the best build up to the Spine but fingers crossed all those earlier miles get you through (relatively) pain free
I should have know better but not currently running as I ran 5k in my Bikilas on Sunday and it feels as if my ankles have snapped in half. I did get up to 7 1/2 miles in them early in the year and stupidly thought 5k would be fine.
