Can't get much more cushioning than a pair of Hokas but they are the Marmite of trainers personally I love them


Working less

I would love to go down to four days a week and could just about afford it but as we are going through a review and they are making redundancies at the moment need to hang fire for now. Could be another year before they get round to my department.

How's everyone's training going? 19 last Friday and 20 today out at 6am to avoid some of the heat.

Not long now 29 days.

Very early running because of heat?

I'm a fan of running early all year round. It stops life getting in the way. Up and out the door and back before the family is up.

The only other people who are around are other runners and those doing the walk of shame!

It's adjustable and stretches accommodate whatever you put in it (within reason) no bounce or twisting. I normally carry my phone, couple of gels, some money, car keys and an emergency snickers on longer runs no problem.

The tale of two knees

s-o-t-r the main objective of the exercises is to keep and improve the range of movement in the Knee.

No I don't wear a knee support was advised against it. 

What I find really helps is for the first mile of any run I concentrated on my form to make sure it's correct as I had a tenancy land lighter on the affected knee which could cause problems long term to the other knee/leg.

Hills or flat the same really.

Try and get a couple of physio sessions ideally with a running friendly one. If you live anywhere near Reading I can recommend mine.

My yearly dilemma- which is best be seen and safe or unseen and safe?

So it’s that time of the year when it’s back to r*nning in the dark. I always have this dilemma at this time every year. As I r*n some of my r*ns on my own do I light myself up like a Christmas tree so I am visible to those around me or not?
