I had vowed next time to put an extra sock on my right foot! To be fair the last time I did any xc in the dirt to get my spike sucked off was nearly 20 years ago when I was a small child. It was still the right one though I can remember that much!!!
After today's northern xc championships, where it was very muddy, has left me wondering if my footwear is not the best for mud! I have a pair of xc spikes, with the longest spikes in I could find. I forgot my tape, so couldn't put that on, but at several points around the course, I was in real danger of having my right shoe sucked off into the mud (I think my right foot must be slightly smaller than the left as its always the right it happens too!) I wondered if maybe some trail running trainers may be better in really muddy conditions, as there is more "shoe" than a spike help keep it on your foot. I'm in no danger of winning so something comfy is fine
After a trip to the physio, I am due a new pair of orthotics, I'm waiting for their confirmation of exactly what sort I need. (They do sell them, but I also want to look online to see whats available.)
Can anyone recommend any decent websites? I've had a look myself, but cant really find anything inspiring so far.
Can anyone help me with this... not been to the gym for ages, been working on other areas of fitness. Tried using some of the training cards in the gym, but to be honest they were too easy (even when at max effort)...
So I was wondering if anyone could recommend anywhere online that might have something a little more suitable?
