What sort of shoes do overpronators race in?

Posted: 17/08/2015 at 15:33

I have been looking around for the same type of shoe and it seems like there is a DS Trainer and a DS Racer. I think the Racer would be the lighter option.

We have Royal Parks Half Marathon places

That's not quite correct, as the Royal Parks allots places through a ballot, so however early you enter, you won't necessarily get in.

Maybe VLM should change the numbers so that they look different each time. Mine this year looked exactly the same as last year's.

Thanks, Phil. Great to have some recommendations to try. I do have my eye on the Saucony's, but that may just be because I like the name! I don't think Sweatshop stock them, which is a shame, as it would be good to try them out under the 14-day return policy (if they are still doing that).

As a wearer of the Tempo, I'm a bit confused about the latest incarnation which looks heavier and, as you say, seems to have changed the stability it offers. Any suggestions for an alternative lightweight shoe of a similar type? I'd wear them for faster training and races up to half marathons.

Marathon nutrition advice

I wasn't worried about it, I just think it's best used strategically, i.e. in the second half of an endurance event, and balanced with other 'normal' gels.

I'm not sure it's a good idea for all your gels to be caffeinated. I thought those were to be used sparingly, at an appropriate time in the race, in conjunction with normal gels. I also would not have sports drink on top of gels. Water seems a better idea. But I do appreciate that everyone is different.

Thanks, Phil. Perhaps I will give them a try, though not right before the marathon.

I buy Adidas shoes half a size bigger than other trainers and that seems to work. The Inspire 10s do seem to wear through (eventually) but as they cost less than half the price of the 11s at the moment, I've just ordered another pair!

Marathon training with meniscus tear

Posted: 08/03/2015 at 15:07

Just to say, I run with a similar injury, so it is possible. My tear doesn't affect my running (even though it was torn while running) and is only painful if I try to bend my knee too much. After an MRI, the consultant told me I could have an op but he would advise leaving it. At the moment that seems the preferable option and the knee has actually improved, even though I was told that wouldn't happen.

Is Sweatshop damaging its brand?

Now that it is stocking so much Karrimor and La Pro gear?
