Wendy - we're booked into the Astrid but don't let that put you off
I like monitoring. I find it very useful.
A great example, tonight was really hot and I thought that I was really slow. Checked it against last week's run and this was actually faster.
Charlie4 I think both Dannirr and Running Rodent use Hokas. I'm pretty sure they both love them. Maybe they'll give some info.
I think they're a very low drop which might be a problem if you've got tight calfs. I went from a 12mm drop to an 8mm and I didn't get on with the change. Calf problems cost me 5 months running.
I'm back in training after a week off post Liverpool..
Legs are remembering to move, lungs are getting the hang of it but the guts seem to have forgotten quite a bit.
Ran on Tuesday, accompanied by Mrs O on her bike, and about half way through the 4 mile run my guts started grumbling. Then mumbling, groaning, talking loudly and finally shouting..
i had to send Mrs O ahead to open the door to prevent delays and finished the run with a full on clench. And relax.
Thursday run wasn't quite as exciting but I still had to convince my guts that they could wait another 20 minutes. Which they did. No clenching this time.
Friday and my guts decided to make up for the clench incident by providing copious jet propulsion.
Isn't running fun
Karen - 6 minutes, wow that's some improvement.
I like the theory about entering loads of races so that Paris is just another race. Trouble is, I'm a big kid and I get excited about every race I enter. Plus, Paris is rather special. Trust me, it won't be just another
