I don't think I know of anyone that doesn't race while marathon training - it's such an eggs-in-one-basket race that you can't risk getting nothing out of all the training! Even though I love marathons more than other distances, it's still a lot of work to go out the window if it doesn't go right, so I want some PBs along the way!
HeOw, Fergster, Ramjet, I also try to do tempo runs away from roads - nothing more infuriating than cars in the way! Or dogs underfoot, or squawking kids in the middle of the path... I am a grumpy tempo-runner it seems.
Has anyone ever risked looking like a berk and worn odd shoes? I'm having major niggles in my left leg at the moment, and I know that I overpronate quite a lot on the right leg, so have always worn support shoes to help with this, however, it also seems that I am fairly neutral on the left leg, so I'm wondering if the support shoes are causing me problems. I have tried running in neutral shoes before but feel a bit wrong in them, so wondering if I should try one of each
