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?
I keep all my medals so that when I am 85 and can't walk across the hall I'll have something to look at, they might also be good for catching my drool. If I won as many medals as Lit though I think the participation only ones might be devalued a bit - I can't actually work out any good reason why someone would pay £85+ for a finisher's medal.
Hi Richard - good luck with Liverpool - a marathon after a 28 hour flight doesn't sound great to be honest but I have run 10 miles after a 22 hour journey with about 2 hours sleep and that wasn't too bad if that helps???
Pete - I can't actually listen to the YouTube vids at work but I notice that you play the same instruments as my younger sister - she's never been in a wild band like you but did the P&O cruise ships for about 5 years and still gets paid for shows and stuff.
Funny to think of you 45 years ago at wild sex and drugs parties when previously thought of you as a Mr Sensible retired teacher! Now I discover you were more Captain Sensible.
Excellent Cog, I think you are the only one still doing the original challenge.
I'm still going with my variation.
So 80 every day in April with a best single effort of 39 and a best combination of 39,35,6 so still improving but I haven't managed to get back on my secondary target of being able to achieve the daily total in two sets by end of month - think that's 7,860 press up in total for the year - sounds a lot.
So 90 every day for May.
Well done SG2 that is a lot of press ups and good luck in getting back to it Stylish.
Right with wholesale changes like this I normally make a few cock ups but I'm sure you'll let me know!
Above updated for:-
Helloo Velloo and an entry straight into the middle of the silver league demoting Tommy to the bronze league and resulting in T'Dan being booted off altogether (not because he was bottom but because T'Dan who? I hear you all ask - like Richard and MattyWarr before him his details are still stored should he ever return).
Happy Birthday Mr V who is now a thirtysomething although still too young for that to help his WAVA I think and who also got a mystery team prize which may as easily have been a random birthday present but I've let him count it.
Lit got a new team gold medal for being Scottish and a fast marathon runner and having two fast Scottish marathon club friends and all three of them being able to wear their club tops better than three other Scottish women from the same different club who were actually faster and also being faster than all the other Scottish female threesomes from the same different clubs who could all wear their club tops. Well done!
Madbee landing a modest (in comparison to other threadites) 4 minute marathon PB but with the biggest smile and just falling 23 seconds short of snatching the (very competitive) marathon bronze cell from Marrows.
McFlooze having the most miserable marathon by the sounds of it but knocking 6 minutes off her PB which I'm sure now will be what she mainly remembers (possibly?).
DT knocking 10 mins off his PB with no bowel or retching issues off 30 miles training a week which means that last week must have been about your biggest mileage week for ages??
Finally in terms of PB savaging Tommy gets ride of place for knocking the time it takes Mr V to race a 10k PB off his marathon PB with a whopping 36:29 off his previous best
Excellent work everybody.
As far as silver and bronze highlighted cells go Velloo's appearance and Tommy moving leagues has caused carnage but DT will be pleased to note that whilst he lost the weight highlighted cell he is now the youngest silver leaguer.
