Hi just received e mail regarding sunderland 10k and half marathon. I normally do the 10k but fancy a go at the half marathon. Has anyone done both - which would you suggest? I know the Marathon this yr had a bit of a bad press and they are not doing it in 2014. Is the half marathon basically twice round the 10k route or is it all new scenery? Just afraid that having done great north run may find sunderland half hard going as doesn't attract same crowds etc although love running past the marina, beach etc. Any suggestions welcome thanks

Hi again as per my previous post due to injury I cannot run on Sunday -  I had a buyer for my place but they have pulled out. Its short notice but would anyone be interested in it . You would have to pick it up as too late to post I live in the Sunderland area.

Great North Run 2013

Hi everyone. Well I'm really gutted I'm out of GNR. Ive trained all year and few weeks ago my Achilles started to hurt but stupidly tried to keep running. I then decided last week to give it a week of rest  so went out today to see what it was like as ok to walk on - I got five minutes into run had to stop and walk home it hurts more than before. Just need some advice please -  I realise I need to stop running for at least a few weeks - will I be ok to swim and bike and also walk ( as doesnt hurt when walking) to keep up my fitness and stop weight going on or I should I not exercise at all ? 




iphone armbands - which ones are best?

Posted: 25/05/2013 at 21:39

I ended up giving up with armbands as the sweat and rubbing on my arm cut my skin leaving marks and just found really uncomfortable. I now always buy running shorts with pocket and always check that phone fits in it before I buy however I only use phone for map my run etc and incase of emergency I don't listen to music on it.

the Marathon of the North

Hi I have been following this thread although I only did the 10k .My chip and gun time were the same although I was at the back when starting. I emailed race timing systems and they got back to me today saying there was some problems and they had corrected mine when I looked back on timings my time was reduced by nearly 3 minutes which was where I thought I was and cheered me up no end. Not sure if that means they sorted out everyone who had issues or if you need to e mail them. Well done to everyone on Sunday  I live in Sunderland and can run in any weather but I did think it was freezing and windy (again) on Sunday and as I was finishing going into the stadium passing you marathoners going the other way I was thinking I'm glad it's not me! Roll on the great north run...

Calf tightness.....need advice!

Posted: 25/03/2013 at 22:11
I also am suffering from tight calves which seem to cramp quite easily as well. I bought a foam roller which I have been using after a run but unsure whether I should use it on non run days ie on cold muscles would this help or make it worse?

Shock absorber run bras for me they are brilliant. As someone said earlier I have found them the cheapest on Amazon - ordered my last two from there.
