some great long running from you all this weekend!
Carter great 20miler - serious elevation and great pace for climbing too - all the more impressive following it up with those 5 @ MP ( or a tad faster than MP maybe?)!
Ali - another impressive run - especially when you weren't up for it.... Good job.
PS - you seemed to knock ur 17miler out without trying - biryani must be the charm!
and Washwood 18 miles..Excellent... I'm starting to feel like an imposter .... My long runs are currently only medium runs to you guys! Ran an 11miler this morning with lots of elevation and some trail - felt quite tough from the off and pace felt sluggish ... averaged 9:19 but was just pleased to grind it out & get it done. Ran fasted so maybe that didn't help.
Carl & Nell - my favorite Wave Inspire was actually the 8 but impossible to get now. I had being running in the 9's like you Carl which I also liked and ran this morning in the new 10's for the first and, although no issues, wasn't that impressed tbh. Felt like a harder ride... Maybe it was just me not feeling up for it this morning so the jury's still out - I'll see how I get on with them over the next week. The drop is high Nell isn't it - even visually so.... Think I'll heel strike in what ever I wear though!
Washwood - the Sauconys look good, keep seeing the TV ad on SkySports for them! A few of my running buds at the club have moved to Adidas boost over the last year and rave about them - that might be the next brand to try!
