Charlie...you can normally recover 50-75% of the outlay, on eBay.

Charlie- What i tend to do is work out the category of shoe that suits me ie mild over pronation and research the different shoes in that range. I have tried a neurtral shoe and a supportive neutral and neither has suited.

I always wore gt2170 then the 2000s until v2 caused me issues. When I find a pair i know works I wait for sportshoe.com to have say a 15% off deal and I will order 2-4 pairs, dependant hat spare cash I have. I think all my running shoes in l;ast 2 years have come via that site.

I had half day today so went with a spin/pump combo. Hip now suddenly feels a lot better so will have a run tomorrow as only on 14 miles for the week but have done 4 spin sessions.

Good luck Lit/Tommy/Bob at Beeston tomorrow and mr v in his 10k, and the standard copy and pasted good luck to Muddy.

I used to look forward to his training posts, as whilst we all should have been doing the same thing....his were always quite different!

Skinny, good question. I did 8 miles a couple of weeks ago, and my average pace was 7.25 with no identifiable warm up or cool down as i hadnt planned anything, I just seemed to get gradually faster. Would I have been better off warming up then having a middle bit that was much faster than the warm up and/or my average pace of the whole run and still ending up with roughly the same average pace?

Good to see you building back up, Marrows. Are you doing p and d again?

Im going to have to step back from running a bit again as there seems to be some issue back in my hip/glute/itb. Its felt a bit tight the last few days then the other night I twisted my leg around whilst sat on the sofa and the area cramped up. Its been quite sore since.

In view of the fact I am labouring with a cough which makes running much less enjoyable, and there are 4 consecutive days over xmas were I wont be able to do a thing anyway I am not so bothered about a slight early bath, especially knowing that things should happen as of 05th January.

I think the whole concept is so alien to them that they were quite intrigued by it all. I didn't go into any particular detail. Just shared my frustration as to how this stops me before my legs or lungs are beat.

Muddy, we use the staff from the daycare nursery so they only charge £7 an hour for both kids! I might just hire them for 48 hours every weekend!

I've never really got to grips with cadence. Every time I try and up mine I just run faster. That may come something of interest to me when I get my 610 shortly. 

I was chatting to mybrother in law a few weeks back and we got talking about my gagging in racing etc. Anyway, he leads a team in bupa dealing with gastrointestinal claims and deals regularly with a consultant who specialises in GI problems in sports people at top level. Anyway, my brother in law had a chat and he's interested in discussing my issue to see if there's any particular trigger. We've both agreed that its unfeasible that I am so hardcore that I push myself harder than most around me. He's sent me a questionairre and wants a chat this week. Could amount to nothing, but nothing to lose.

Lou- I wear the asics fuji as multi terrain shoes, though have only had cause to wear them a few times. Lots of people seem to talk positively about the innov-8 talons.

It cost me £25 for childcare to run xc last weekend as my wife was working. Thats how much I like it

I seem to be recovering pretty quickly from this virus, though i am left with a nasty cough which is enough with xmas coming to leave me targetting a pretty easy week this week.

The Middle Ground

Cb- Looks like the race was a bit of fun and a decent finishing position.

Alehouse- Good going there for the year. I think i am going to try and keep a record of my mileage next by making use of my garmin connect.

Last week was meant to be a 40m week along with xc saturday. Unfortunately it became substantially reduced. Woke up with sniffles Thursday, by Friday morning I was shivering in and in the midst of the heaviest cold i can recall and barely able to get out of bed. I then had to pull out of xc and miss two parties over the weekend. As quickly as it came it eased off however so i am now just left with a bit of a chesty cough and some sniffles.

I was quite disappointed to miss the xc as there arent many i can easily do with other committments and my wifes work pattern.

Darola- If you're still about....I take it Telford didnt happen? I couldnt see you on the results?

Well done mcf. Good marker laid down to move forward with. Remind me, are both you and Lou now marathoning next year or just you? 

Some good mileage, Lou. Hence my question above.

Muddy, great effort. Think its quite inevitable that you'll go sub 60 next year, and probably won't be alone on this thread.

Looks like some good returns there, Bob. Need to dig my hrm back out.

Not trained since a half hearted attempt at spin Thursday. Don't quite know what hit me but in 72 hours I went from waking with a sniffle to feeling like I'd been hit by a bus for 2 days, to now just having a sniffle again.
