Hi Pete, what exercises did you're physio recommend? 



Posted: 03/05/2014 at 10:59
I supinate quite heavily and have found minimal type shoes work quite well; as the shoe hight is less then the outward role isn't exaggerated by the, normally tall, midsole. This, I've found, puts less strain on the ITB and other gubbins on the outside of the knee.

I run in inov8 233's and completely ignore what running shops tell me. Took me a while to get here, and a lot if shoes.

I love it when someone asks a reasonable question and the same old people give them shit because they haven't got the common sense or intelligence to appreciate that someone may just have slightly different requirements to them. 

A cheap way if you've already got an iphone, and that I've used is 'Find my iphone" which is perfect if you're recovering from a major medical issue and like nothing more than to lose yourself in the hills. Your partner can access it from any other computer or iOS device. 

Theres a "Tile" that works with iOS too that looks interesting. 



Salomon customer services?

Oh, you're good. 


Salomon customer services?

Posted: 24/04/2014 at 20:47

Would anyone have an email for Salomon customer services? The website just gives a premium rate phone line that I'm loathed to use. I have a pair of Sense Mantra's which are struggling to see 100 miles - snapped laces, holes, stitching coming apart. 

I'd rather ask advice from Salmoon before contacting the vendor as they'll just ask for them to be returned at my cost. 

Salomon speedcross 3's

I'd say this is a standard problem with this shoe I'm afraid, but these look brand new.  It might just be the way you're made up that exaggerates the bend at the metatarsals;  just be thankful you haven't got the CS/GTX version. I doubt the tear affects shoe performance though. 

For what it's worth I found the Speedcross 3's to be pretty slippy compared to other shoes.

What do you think of the Inov8 Evoskin?

Inov8 180's are nice, and don't make you look like a barefoot hipster.  Last ages too.

You want a flip-flop review? I blame the internet for such madness

How 'many ultras a year do you run?

Posted: 18/02/2014 at 14:03

Bloody hell Lake Runner that sounds like substantial mileage! 

I've got a 40 in March, two 100's in July, and Snowdon marathon at the end of the year. That's my dance card full I reckon. 

The two 100's was accidental, the second is the LL100 which I'm not treating as a race - rather a comprehensive weekend recce (if the wife and kids allow it) so that I'm familiar with the course for next year.  Also supporting a pal on his 100 in May.
