I'm loving salomon Fellraisers at the moment. I'm trying to increase my long distance offroad/fell stuff and these seem ideal for it; Low to the ground (about 6mm drop) grippy, comfy - what more can I ask?
That's faster than I run! I found three times a week or so best. I also found that just doing what you felt like doing helped; leave the watch at home, then just run a bit, walk a bit and run a bit more; repeat til you've had enough!
If you get too bogged down with times and stuff you'll soon find it a chore - the best route to giving up.
Vary where u run as well - can you get off road for some of your runs?
I think my next long run will be tuesday; no doubt all the snow will be gone by then, haven't seen a forecast for the Buckden area for tuesday yet but I'm hoping for cold and sunny, a light breeze and no rain!
