MsE - the Japanese have just as much depth as the Kenyans if not more, they're just 4-5 minutes slower over a marathon.
7 gentle miles with the club tonight @ 8:50 ish. It didn't feel too bad running, but my stomach is churning right now so we'll see how I feel in the morning.
I've worn Nike Vomeros for quite a few years now starting with Vomero 3 and most recently I've been running in Vomero 6 as I bought a bunch of them cheap when the 7 was brought out but due to a year of not running I've only just started to wear them out. I decided I'd need a new pair for the marathon, so I bought a pair of Vomero 8 and ran in them for the first time tonight. Unfortunately, apart from the fact they're completely fugly, they also seem flatter and very hard, nowhere near the amount of cushioning of the 6, and my legs were sore after just 7 miles, so it looks like I'll be racing in my best pair of 6's as it's too late to switch to a completely new model now. Afterwards I guess I'll be looking for a new shoe. Why can't they just leave stuff alone!
