Would appreciate any advice on the trail type shoes for best grip on smooth rock surfaces (cobbles spring to mind). Looking at Salamons and Innov8s but they seem to be geared towards trails, mud and fell running. I'm running on a lot of rocky surfaces which have a venier of humidity. My current road shoes and trail shoes seem to slightly slip on each stride, particularly on the flat or downhill. Any advice would be appreciated.
Went to see Haggis this evening. He is in good hands and is a wee fighter. They are treating the massive infection first. If the infection gets under control then they will attempt to reset his leg but it may take quite a while. He won't be running anytime soon! He is still in a bad place but the vet was impressed that he ate from my hand without the need of gauntlets. Both he and me have had the best sleep in a week over the last 24 hours!
I however have the alarm clocks set again for 5 tomorrow. 10k required me thinks.
Good news story for this morning. Went out at 5am (dawn for me) looking for a friendly stray dog who I have been trying to 'help' for over a week. I fed him scraps most days but for the last week when I have seen him he obviously has a broken leg but I have only been able to find him when I can't get a vet or animal rescue to come out. Came back to my apartment at 7am to find him outside! Anyway, after 5 hours of knashing and sedation (both for me), Haggis is now with a nice vet who is trying to save him and his leg. I will sleep tonight, enjoy a beer and I'm NOT running tomorrow morning!!
Emmy, I'm the same but have I'm blaming old age! There is probably a science about it somewhere but I think if I don't run then I kind of give the body a chance to stiffen up. I train for marathons but even when I have a 4 or 5 run per week program then the only way I can follow it is to do a 'dog walk run' on my days off.
