Shane, me old Sausage, I’ve done Dublin and it is one of my faves! Might do it ‘for fun’ again this year if I can get me blummin hammy fixed.
Talking of which, I’ve been visiting the hyperbaric chamber and my physio is pleased with how the tear is progressing. She suggested I do a short, gentle jog which I did last night. Apparently it’s important to work the muscle while it’s repairing. Leg felt OKish, but it’s still early days.
I like the look of those racing slippers, Wenty. Might get myself a pair I have to stick with my heavyish Asic Kayanos for training and racing - anything else plays havoc with me bunions . I have some Kanadias too, LFR. Thankfully my lady-garden is ok at the moment I find the Kanadias pretty comfy, but not grippy enough for fells (I use Inov8 Mudclaws).
I demote my shoes after about 350 miles – they stop being my ‘best’ shoes and get used for GA runs and eventually short/easy runs. I usually have a few pairs on the go at the same time and I’m pretty anal, cos I keep a log!
