Keen to start running in the hills...

Go for it. I`m in Sheffield so in reach of the Peaks. Also don`t be afraid to walk when you need to; even seasoned fell runners will do that when needs must.

Wanting to get faster

For me, 1k reps are key to a swift improvement. Try and run at your target pace, or close to it. So, aim for 4.30, rest for at least two mins and then try and do another one. Ultimately, you aim to do about six with a short rest between each.

That said, upping your mileage is very important too.

Stress Fracture

I went to minor injuries unit at hospital to have xray and they then put me onto physio so that rehab was effective. It was!

When should I bin the old shoes? Is 500 miles a good innings?

Posted: 10/07/2014 at 10:49

Your body ought to tell you if the shoes are done. Personally I get good use up to around 350 miles from my Brooks but then I`m fairly big (6`3 and 12 stone). After that sort of distance I know I am risking it doing LDRs or real quality stuff so I use them for shorter runs or off-road until 500 miles or thereabouts.

Also if I was you, I`d put the Cortanas on ebay as plenty of folk would probably like to give them a whirl.

Vive au Yorkshire!!!!

Yeah! I was 3 k from the Sheffield finish on some tricky bends. AMAZING event!

First Trail Shoes

I`ve got Kanadias and they`re ok for trails but not fun on roads. First trail shoe I had was NB and they were poor. I put them on Ebay!

Watching the Tour in Sheffield ?

Posted: 04/07/2014 at 16:14

Yeah, I`m thinking Jenkin Road at the mo. Probably will tram to area.

First 13.1!

I tend to take a fair bit of kit with me and decide last minute what to wear because weather changes quickly. However, I do tend to wear my shorts but not tops and `accessories`. I try and remember a change of top and a towel. A fair few folk seem to have flip flop type things for after which must be nice for sore feet. Good luck!

Did you do RSR running eye?

I went to watch in Graves and it looked like fun. I didn`t really see how it`d work until I saw the results.

I`ve been struggling a bit since 3 Lakes with a bilateral abductor strain so no running for a few days. Feel terrible with no exercise and replacing it with late nights watching football and the odd class or several of vino tinto.

Still, I`m aiming for the Trail Rush!

Round Sheffield Run

I watched from the top of the climb in Graves and it looked like fun. Clever idea, fair do`s. I`m in for Trail Rush too if I can rid myself of post 3 Lakes niggles.
