Choose my marathon Shoeses

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.

I wear both the Mizuno Wave Inspires and also Adidas Adizero Tempos (mostly for races and speed sessions). They are both really good and offer support, but I see the latest Tempos have been 'boosted'. I tried a boost shoe once and was not keen. They seem heavy, which is the opposite of what I want in a faster shoe. So now I will have to stick to the  older versions or find something new. I was wondering about the Saucony Fastwtich. Anyone tried those?

I did Finchley last year and it was an excellent event. Am trying the Thames Riverside 20 this time, so it will be interesting to compare the two.

Gear Reviews - latest is from 2009

The opinions of a couple of people from 2015 would be more helpful than ones from 2009 though.

Is Sweatshop damaging its brand?

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