ParkRun

Posted: 02/06/2013 at 20:00

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?

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.

Mizuno Wave Inspire 7

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.

Deciding on marathon Pace

Posted: 24/05/2013 at 11:49

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.

Realistic Targets for beginner?

Posted: 21/05/2013 at 16:05

I've three and a half years running now, and I have achieved two of these (the 5 and 10K ones). I recommend regular timed runs: parkrun - a target every week.

I reckon the marathon target is the most difficult of those targets, incidentally, but we are all made differently.

Great Manchester run this sunday

The K-Swiss We love Manchester 10k on July is a much cheaper alternativeStarts in the athletics stadium next to the Etihad.
