I second the compliments to Alexandra Sports in Portsmouth.I first went there after my 1st Half marathon, nursing about 5 blisters and walking as if with a phantom horse under me. The owner,Brian sorted me out within 20 minutes and I have continued to get both footwear and other technical clothing from there as well. They will also give affiliated club runners, 10% discount. It is sad however, that there appear to be so few specialist shops in the central south of England. Living as I do in Southampton, Portsmouth is not too far to travel, but such stores are few and far between when one considers the number of regular runners in the south.
I got my RW watch to work by letting my kids, they're both in their 20's,to set it up for me,since they do alright with the video. Trouble now is, I can't read the time without my reading glasses and I don't tend to wear them whilst running. It would be helpful though if Runner's world included the setting details of the watch either in one month's mag or on-line so the instructions can be printed locally. Great little freebie though,not looking forward to the battery failing.
