May have to fight a cyclist on Monday at dawn

The police said I shouldn't have to compromise my running due to the threats of criminals. Threatening someone is a criminal offence as is riding on the pavement. Pushing a pram is not...

Love the pikes. Didn't turn up again. I do have some training in 'conflict management' albeit from some time ago. Reckon I could take him.

First occurrence I was running on a narrow pavement. He rides at speed towards me forcing me onto the road. I say watch it and he responds with threats and abuse. Pavement is definitely NOT one on which cyclists can legally ride.t

The police did say they would send a patrol down on Tuesday or Wednesday so maybe I won't get my duel after all.  Then if they dId their job and handed out tickets to  pavement cyclists more then altercations such as this would never arise.

 

the police officer said that I should not have to compromise my running.

Thanks for the support.  He didn't turn up!  Then I suppose by definition pavement cyclists are going to be gutless....

Over the last two week days a pavement cyclist has yelled abuse and threats at me in my run.  I have reported it to plod without any real response.

Now if I wish to continue running on my regular route at a convening time I am going to have to fight and beat this  criminal.  He is only active on week days.

unfortubeately if one wishes to run on the rough streets of Surrey one has to be prepared to stand ones ground.

Calf guards

Foreigners seem a lot more friendly than the locals.  We get a lot of foreign students here in the holidays and they usually smile when I come across them when running.  Much more amenable than the grumpy locals. 

Suppose I won't be voting UKIP then...

Any advice out there

Physios can get the diagnosis of flat feet wrong.  One diagnosed me with them, subsequently went to an orthopod who said they were fine.

 

Gait Checking

Forget the gait thing it's highly questionable anyway.  However always worth running in the shoes for a bit on their treadmill to see if they are comfortable.
