Hey, sorry, can't comment on Scott shoes.I have run in brooks glycerin now for a few years and also have a pair of hoka Bondi 4. I can't say if the Hoka's are better or worse as they are very different. Hoka's are highly cushioned and therefore spongy and I remember the first time I ran I ran in them it felt very weird. Best thing is to go to a shop and try them on as I can imagine that Hoka's are not to everyone's taste.

Hi Grumpie, well done for getting started again. To improve its best to do different types of runs, e.g tempo runs, hill training, intervals, long slow runs, recovery runs etc. I'm not familiar with any 10k apps and don't know if there is science begin it. As you are looking to continue beyond 10k why not look at a beginners half marathon plan which will also teach you about the different runs? There are lots of them out there. Just have a look on google. I personally used http://www.bupa.co.uk/~/media/Images/HealthManagement/PDFs/Beginner%20half%20marathon_FINAL.ashx and also have a look here for the types http://www.bupa.co.uk/health-information/directory/r/running-programme-half-marathon
Regarding the pain, i know exactly what pain you mean as I also get it, but I have no idea what causes it and how to prevent it. I mostly get it on my faster runs, sometimes I can ignore it and continue, other times it makes me stop dead for a few minutes before I can continue with a slow jog.

Leave a pair of shoes at work ( if you can) which you can change into when you arrive, and take off before you leave. saves you from lugging a pair around. In terms of backpack, I would look for a comfortable running backpack, as comfort is important imo. If it's not waterproof you can always put your things in a plastic bag to keep dry before putting them in the backpack.

Well done lowrez! Sounds like it was anything but easy, so you must be very chuffed finishing.

There might not be a law taking care of this issue, and it would be really sad if there were, but common sense and courtesy should be applied which indicates to share the space and not be selfish

Mr Soft, just run straight towards them until you are almost running into them and then either, stop abruptly and shake your head or just at the last second go to one side but make sure you get to make contact with their shoulder/arm! I can't stand obnoxious people who think that they don't need to show some sort of consideration towards ppl around them.

Are you and "in" or an "out"?

Why do people do Ultras?

Posted: 30/05/2016 at 14:15
Well, you answered your own question. Some ppl do it for the challenge ( mentally and physically) to see how far they can push their body and mind.

Running Backpack recommendations

I have a camelbak ultra 10 which is not a cheap backpack but it fits me well and has lots of space to carry stuff. It has a cord so you can compress your stuff if the bag is not entirely full. It also has a waterproof pocket at the front in which I can put my phone but it is not big enough if you have a big phone ( anything over the size of an iphone5s would be a challenge to fit in,imo).
