Good luck to you all on Sunday, did the VLM last week so I have all the nerves and carbs behind me. Did the Manchester last year and it looks like the course and weather are better for this year. Have a great race, I'll be chearing you all on from Chester Road.
Thanks Misha, never ran in NB before so I'll take a look, I like the sound of 8mm drop.
Thanks DiscountRunner, I'll take a look at swift2feet and let you know, yes I dont know anyone who owns Newtons or if thet are any good. Thanks also for the positive comments on the time, feeling great at the moment as a couple of years ago I was rather tubby!
I've been running in an OMM for the last 2years, packs very small, light, windproof, breathable, hand loops good size and requires reproofing from time to time. There are better tops out there but for the price its a good investment. Will need to wear a peak cap with hood up as the hood peak is not great. Hope this helps.
I have a very neutral gate and most of my wear is in the fore foot, I've been running in Nike Pegasus for the past 4years and have been enjoying fitness improvements over this time. I'm now running under 36mins for 10k and the Pegasus 29 now feel a little spongy to me. I started at 15stone (now 11stone and 5'11") and 46min and at the time the Pegasus were just right.
I was after some advice which shoes to consider as most of the on line help points me to a racer/trainer or a Newton. FYI I race in an Adidas Boston which I love.
I have 2pairs of 29's that I've rotated over winter while marathon training, I'm not keen on them either. I'm also stuck which way to go, I'm a neutral forefoot striker and the alternatives are not great! Vomero are good, think they stabalise achillies more although not 100%, Adidas SuperNova Glide look good but I believe they do encourage heal strike.
