Wiggle are brilliant, if a little more expensive sometimes. Their excellent customer service and the fact you get Haribo sweets seal the deal for me.
Before buying online though, I went to a proper running shop, ran on the treddy with half a dozen different pairs, even ran up to the end of the road and back once we'd established what I required. We watched the video playback and had a cuppa. I didn't look at any price tags and simply picked the ones that felt the best while running, they were the most expensive.
Unfortunately the shop is now closed and I have nowhere within a 20 mile radius, serves us all right I guess chasing the online bargains with last years models. I have since had dealings with Wiggle (A+), Sportshoes (A+) and Start Fitness (B+). The only people I'd actively avoid online or on the High Street are Sports Direct, but you probably didn't need to know that.
The point I was making Lazarus is the current trend of people treating cyclists like vermin. The press and other media are constantly having a go. It's okay to hate cyclists as they're an easy target. Would a post about a motorist bumping into someone and hurling abuse at them have been posted? It would almost certainly have been ignored as irrelevant yet a cyclist....there's someone we can all have a go at.
Save the book 330, you'll love it. I think we all wish we were younger again but it's not just more running I'd like to do, it's more everything. Not sure there's enough time for it all.....let's just hope we all come back....as runners
Biscuits and crisps. And cakes, and ice cream. Chocolate.....mmmm. I LOVE junk food and like RikF hit my racing weight a few months back. I'm now 10lbs over that, mainly thanks to overeating during marathon training.
Yesterday I had a giant chocolate bourbon, it had 435 calories and 29% of my daily fat allowance.....it nearly drank all my tea! I'm off to get the giant custard cream now .....and some crisps.
