Hi all, hope you dont mind if i poke my nose in here
I'm doing Nottingham marathon in september and im just getting back into my running after a while off. About 30miles a week at the moment. It looks like I have some SERIOUS catching up to do - Im nowhere near a 20 miles long run yet!! Although I ran 12 in 2hours so its not too shabby.
Anyway, a gentle 8 miles this morning and 14 planned for tomorrow. Beautiful weather in abingdon at the mooment!
BTW: anyone remember me?? I posted in this thread for a while when it started. Ive moved house and changed jobs since then
4 miles recovery last night, shins still a little achey from monday's long run hopefully will be alright though. Resting today just incase but speedwork tomorrow! Wahoo! doing 10km with 6 at 10k pace ready for a race on the 7th March. Aiming for a sub-45 min 10k this time.Cant wait
Wouldnt want to order without knowing i like them though.
Gobi, looking at some pics, Nike Free look like they have a massive thick sole on them? Or is that just misleading? The Katana's look better, but I guess you can't really make a decision just from the pictures eh.
HY4: that must have been a relief... sorry to hear about the back, hope it sorts itself out.
Kiwiscanfly: If there was a shoe that looked relatively normal, didnt cost the earth and had no support and very little sole to it, I would buy it. As it stands the only real option is those Vibram five-finger shoes which look utterly DAFT! I wouldnt be seen in those things, thyre an eyesore. And barefoot is pretty much out of the question living in the city. What do you run in?(if the answer is VFF's, sorry ) I'm interested because I'm looking to buy some shoes soon, and dont really want to be forking out another 80 quid as you can imagine.
