I agree - road shoes will be fine, but if it is a particularly weather affected cpurse (my home course definitely is) then I would get some trail shoes for wetter days.
If anyone is interested, have a look here at the details of the 'Longest parkrun' event (7 parkruns in one day) for Cheshire and South Manchester.
There are a number of similar 'longest parkruns' in London, Lancashire, Yorkshire, Hamphire, Surrey & Berkshire, and the East Midlands as well. Details here:
parkrun is superb. I go every week I can - sometimes with by 9 year old daughter. A huge variety of runners from 17 min speed snakes to 40+ minutes. Really friendly atmosphere - the least intimidating running experience ever. It offers something for everyone- a manageable distance for beginners and a short speed session for more advanced runners, and a free opportunity to assess improvement every week. Also love visiting other courses round the country.
Absolutely no idea if these are any good, but Groupon has a 50% off a pair atthe moment. I think it only lasts 24 hours:
Anyone know if they are any good?
We got 4 of us comfortably in a Premier Inn room last year. On North Road, I recall.
Wouldn't tablet break apart / dissolve pretty easily? Flapjack has half a chance, and has a combination of simple and complex carbs in there.
Mikasa: I fully recommend "Total Immersion". Even reading the book converted me to a FC swimmer. Probably need to get soime coaching, but this is a good start.
I'm on a pair of Wave Inspire 8 now: slightly larger around the toe area, a little bit lighter again, but still perfectly fine as far as I'm concerned.
I would start at the 9 min mile pace for trhe first half, and then see if you can oush it after that. Maybe even wait until 20 miles. It would be a shame to jeopardise the 4 hour target by starting too quick. If you are feeling good at 20 miles or so, then go for it.
