Newbie seeking help with wide toes!

Posted: Today at 23:01

I have wide feet but spindly girl ankles, and although I don't have shoe recommendations for you, I would recommend these lacing techniques. Try slightly bigger shoes (maybe), and do technique #6 for more space in the forefoot, combined with technique #2 for a nice snug fit round your heel and ankle.


Overdone it?

We normally just do run in lane 1, but we start all the reps from one of the curved lines sort of at the corner (Bob will no doubt have a proper name for that) so I suppose it doesn't matter what lane you're in? And then you'd stop at the equivalent line on the other side.

I only knew two celebrities and might not have recognised either without the captions though I would have thought they looked vaguely familiar. I haven't owned a television since 2007 though.

Madbee - if training is just starting to feel like it is coming together, maybe you are building towards a peak at just the right time.

Fun fact: Tommy and I both beat the 10k PBs in that table the very next day.

Well done Skinny & Madbee! You can't beat a cash prize, though I do like the idea of having two identical paperweights next to each other.

I don't have one of those. That must be why I sometimes need two vests.

(I don't wear a raincoat either, except when cycling)

It's hard to judge as you don't say how much pasta you are already eating.

What are the runners you see out on the roads that you admire wearing? Just wear whatever you're most comfortable in; some people wear loads of layers and long tights, some people wear shorts all year round. I sometimes wear an extra vest and a pair of gloves. My top tip  is not to spend loads of money on all new gear until you've tried a few different things and worked out what you'll actually use. If it is dark you might want to get something hi-viz.

I'm really not very flexible Phil! (Though I can touch my toes). I'd think something with a bit of movement like the roll-down in pilates would be good. In fact, pilates in general would help with flexibility and core strength (without being hard), but I don't normally like to recommend it unless you can find time to go to an actual class with a qualified teacher. In that video it says it's the movement you do at the beginning and end of a class to gauge your flexibility; I would be able to reach the floor with my fingertips at the start, and at the end I'd be able to get most of my hand on it.

 And the older you get, the more you need to keep it mentally fresh. running round a track 25 times.

Anyway, just popping in to say that I'm very pleased Bus is still alive.

Haha, I've got that medal (for something else, obvs). Well done Muddy!

I did volunteer at parkrun once. It was a freezing winter's day though, so no sweaty groins. I think it would be polite for those people to untie their barcode and hand it to you.

Why has Tom Chinery been deleted?

Now I'll never find out whether or not he achieves his ambitious goals.
