The trampoline induced groin niggle had settled down and as barely noticeable during the day yesterday. I therefore decided to set out at 6:15 pace and see how things were going, if it was too much like hard work or if my groin was hurting I was prepared to ease off.
During the 4th mile, my legs began to ache and phantom pains in my hip / groin began appearing, I lost touch with my club mate and the other guy in our little group and I was a bit isolated and I began to wonder whether I should ease off. However,
Ah summer must be here - welcome back Bob! Sounds like an enjoyable outing - isn't racing much more fun when you go out easy and then blast the last mile.
Velloo I can't believe someone went through what caused your injuries in great detail including diagrams for free and you didn't listen - you'll regret that next time you're handing over ??35 to a physio.
DT if you're about tomorrow I've signed up for my first ever spin class on Friday lunch time - seemed to be a straw I hadn't clutched yet. So apart from sweating a lot what actually happens at a spin class and how do you know what level to set the difficulty or whatever it's called at the start of the class?
Simply I used to love these shoes and still run in Ghost 7s (having run in 5s and 6s too) but they are just not the same running experience and also think they might disagree with my feet a bit more.
Has anyone else who used to love Ghost 3 and 4s found a similar shoe they like as much?
The longer version is that I went for a run in the muddy woods on Sunday and just to save ruining my bright yellow Ghost 7s I dug out my very old Ghost 4s from the back of the cupboard and they just felt better on my feet when I was running.
Also when the 5s came out instead of being able to run in my shoe size I had to go up to size 11s and this has stayed the same for 6s and 7s so I lace them tighter which occasionally causes my feet to hurt.
I've tried to buy Ghost 3 and 4 on the net but not surprisingly nobody sells them any more.
So is there another Brooks shoe like the old Ghost now called something else or does a different make have the same feel?
