Watching the runners in the team Tri at the Commonwealth Games today reminded me that I really need to focus more on my running form. They were all so upright and efficient-looking.

Thanks Orbutt. Have to say I'm getting rather excited about the whole thing .

I have to say I prefer Paris for most of the reasons given above, but if you've been brought up watching the London marathon every year, and all the atmosphere that goes with it, it's worth doing. I've done it once, and it was fab, but I'm not in a rush to do it again. But then I live in London, so I have a chance to run bits of the route every day if I want to.

There's a topic?

Can anyone explain to me how the team tri relay works? I thought it was just an ordinary relay and one person did each section. But there are 4 people in each team, 2 male and 2 female, so it's not that. I'd quite like to know before I watch it on Saturday!

What's not to like about a ceremony with dancing teacakes? I think the Welsh let the side down a bit by sending our their lady athletes in nice dresses that you might actually want to wear - not  in the spirit of the event at all.

Emmy - I looked at the Stort 30 and thought it looked interesting. I've walked along part of the route and it's very pretty. Should be a good one.

Share away Esther! Tell us more - is this your first marathon? Paris is a great one - many of us on here are serial offenders. And it's a great place for a weekend too. I haven't signed up yet, because I haven't yet decided on my spring running plans, but I can thoroughly recommend.


Pins and needles in arms after run

Posted: 20/07/2014 at 10:14

Two things occur that you could mention to your doc. Do you hold a lot of tension in your shoulders when you run? That might explain the pins and needles if your shoulders are very tight. Secondly, it might have been hyperventilation - if you were 'overbreathing', that can cause pins and needles. And if you don't know what's happening it can get worse and turn into a full scale panic attack, which would explain the feeling of it spreading. But I'm not a medic and you're right to get it checked out.

Great stuff Stuchbury. All toenails present and correct, or did you have to sacrifice any for the cause?
