i usually do a very steady 3 mile jog the day after a race and then stretch and rest up for a few days.

Help - my trails are too slippy for my trail shoes

I use Roclite 315's (through the winter) and I find they cope well with various off road surfaces and offer enough cushioning on the short road sections.  I save my Mudclaws for cross country and fell races.

I too developed blisters when I ran in asics.  I run in Brooks now and havent had any probems since.

Anyone doing Belper this year in Derbyshire on the 16th August. 

First time for me and first time running 30 km.

I know the race is off road but are the trails decent enough enough to run in road trainers.

tips needed for racing on hot days

I too did that race and found it tough, I finished two minutes outside of my predicted time.  Not sure if the weather was too hot or if the course disagreed with me.  I dont know about anyone else but I found the first two mile more of a climb than undulating, I seemed to flag at about the 3 mile marker and I could have quite easily quit at the first water station but then at about 5 mile I picked up again.  Not sure what advice I can offer you, I think you just have to climatise or avoid running in summer.  Sorry I know lousy advice!!

I had a smilar problems with Asics trainers too, decided enough was enough of taping my feet up and bought another pair of trainers.  I went for Brookes this time (after another gait analysis), so fingers crossed.  The shop where I got them from did say that I could return them after a couple of runs if I was still suffering with the same problem.

Shoulder Stitch

Ran a 10k at the weekend, I was feeling fine untill I hit 7k and got a stitch around the shoulder blade area.  This really hampered my goal of acheiving the PB that  I wanted.  I made sure I was hydrated the day before, doing Blackpool half this weekend and I dont want the same thing to happen.  Anyone got any suggestions.

know just how you feel, I purchased a pair of asics over a year ago after completing an analysis and I get blisters on my arches.  When I am road running I have to tape my feet up with oxide tape.  My off road trainers are Brookes and they dont give me any problems.  If you have only just bought your trainers you could try taking them back to the running shop.
