I ran a marathon (or some of a marathon) whilst pregnant. Baby number 4 and 11th marathon so knew what I was doing. Collapsed at mile 18, very traumatic experience. Baby was fine, he's now 4, but would strongly advise anyone not to do it in any circumstances!
Stick with the 2170s, the Kayanos are for over pronators. I made the same mistake a few years ago thinking more expensive was better but found the Kayanos very heavy and couldn't wear them. I have run ultra marathons in my 2160s/70s!
Hi all, I'm about to start P and D again. Last year I did 55-70 with extra runs and managed a sub 40 10k, sub 90 half and 3.15 marathon, all PBs. Got bit distracted with ultras after that but going to give it a go again for Lochaber marathon this year, probably 70-85 schedule.
I tend to wear my garmin to stop me going off too fast but got my half PB last year without one. After a few years of trying to go sub 90 (I'm a 40 plus female) I managed it without a garmin, sometimes its just great to run how you feel.
