I also had some trouble with runners need leading up to Christmas. I ordered a couple of items well before Christmas one item came but the other item was going to be delivered when the stock came in, this was supposed to be a Christmas present, so I emailed them cancelling my order. Ten days later they replied to the email and said it had been dispatched, it just happened to be on that day they sent the mail. Unfortunately the person didn't get the present for Christmas. They are usually good to deal with but lately service has been terrible. I will not be shopping with them again.
Is there anyone on the thread doing their training runs by heart rate. I work out all my Recovery, GA, MP, LT and V02 max by calculating the zones I should be in. I have my watch set to average heart rate on my run so I can see what the average is and try and stick within the zones. If I do my runs by feel alone I sometimes run to hard especially on my long runs
AgentGinger - What type of shoes do you wear and how many mile have you done in them? I actually carry out gait analysis and have seen this type of thing many times before it is usually a bio-mechanical issue
Another way to do it it is have your watch on manual lap and when the MP starts press the lap button then after the MP ends press the lap button again and then you should have that pace for the whole of the MP segment
