What sort of shoes do overpronators race in?

Asics DS trainers (half price) arrived today but have had to send them back as toe box is tad too shallow for me (4 toenails missing as it is)....shame as the neon orange makes a change from my usual pinkish Asics GT2000

Thanks guys.....have re-downloaded garminconnect on pc, then it found and uploaded the activity, even tho it hadn't been saved, have got 5m of the 6.2, so not too bad after all. Will be bit wiser next time- thanks!

Thanks Mr puffy, will def do software update, and no don't think I pressed stop by mistake, but then in a race, who knows! Useful to know I could have hit start button again though- will do if it happens again, thanks.

vdot50 it was Caerphilly 10k, which was certainly hilly for my old legs!

Did 10k race this morning and was looking forward to my Garmin showing me how slow I am on the hilly bits, stopped the activity at 4m, and asked me to 'save', which I ignored in the hope it would revert back and continue the activity until I told it to stop at end of race. Wrong decision! Have ended up with what SHOULD I have done?

SK well done on doing tailrunner at Parkrun, I've done a couple, it's so hard to do slow walk/run, you can't get into any rhythm!

Keith, root canal work sounds horrendous...hope the pain is under control now.

Big G that was a great Parkrun time, you must be pleased with your fitness levels now.

i also did local is reasonably flat but I faded a bit in the last lap...28:29 which is 2 mins off the PB, so got some work to do! Still, got 1st VW60, so def worth going!!! 

Good luck to anyone racingthis wk/end.

Aaarrgh- just lost long post

Hi everyone...its great to be finally back on here! Have really enjoyed reading back about all your running/fantastic racing...well done, I'm sorry I've not you mentioned individually- hope a collective 'pat on the back' will be acceptable!

My mum has FINALLY moved...phew, it's been an exhausting few weeks boxing her up and settling her into sheltered accommodation, but she seems to be doing great, which is  brilliant.

Am slowly getting back into the running-Paris seems so long ago now- have booked up several 10ks for over the summer, and couple of halfs for thinking that another marathon next year might be a race too far, which is sad, but in order to run 'forever', I need to listen to the body and be sensible- the groin niggle has gone, but the hip is still an embarking on mega strength/Pilates work in the hope that by next spring....well, you never know
