Gait Checking

Some smaller shops charge £15 but will take that off any shoes you buy, seems reasonable to me.

Wow, congrats on a great run.

eeeeek, hello everyone, remember me.


i just spent a lovely week curled up in bed with food poisoning. Went to bed Saturday feeling bad, apart from the loo I pretty much stayed in bed until this morning. I am shattered but at least I feel alive now screwed a lot of plans up, and I'm not flavour of the week at work spending it stuck in bed with my phone off.

bugger!! Feels like I'm totally back to square one.

Sportstracks gets some decent reviews, but costs a bit, keep thinking about it, but frankly connect is good enough for most things

Can't you carry on with the Leadville 1210 I know they have a rugged sole, but cannot see anything wrong with using them on roads, they have a decent amount of padding. Might not last as long, but is that the end of the world? 

calf injury 4 weeks before marathon

Posted: 20/03/2015 at 19:55

Rest it for 7 days then go out wearing a couple of tubular compression bandages over the calf, and if it hurts then rest it another 5 to 7 days, you are trained, just make sure you heal. It is not Magic the simple answer is rest it and test every so often.
