I am in blue 4 too and aiming for sub 3.30, also hoping it's not too congested! One year they gave me pen 7 and it was awful!

The price is just scary, I'd love to do it again as I have unfinished business with Brighton but not for ??52.50 lots of cheaper city marathons out there!

Adidas XT3 to Saucony Kinvara's

I have peregrine 2's and despite using kinvaras and kinvara tr seem unable to run in them! My first outing in the peregrines I managed to roll my ankle at least 10 times and on the second ended up with sore Achilles and plantar pain, I haven't braved them since! Shame as they felt nice ???? salomon fellraiser is a shoe worth looking at if they stock them!

Adidas XT3 to Saucony Kinvara's

The kinvara tr1 is pretty rubbish in mud I save mine for dry summer trails, not sure if the sole improved with the 2's! They also come up small compared to other saucony shoes

Sorry late to the party CC and LLB I'm another one that is always undertrained and injured!

So with that in mind what is the minimal training required to get through 100m? ????

No less toe room than the brooks IMO apart from version 1 that had quite a taper!

I've never had any toe rubbing problems but I guess it depends what shape your feet are ????

I had this problem with the 3's they did loosen up after a few weeks and become as comfy as the 2's the shoe design has a higher heel but they rectified it in version 4!

I think the saucony kinvara is far superior to the brooks flow range, it has the weight of the connect with the cushioning of the flow! I used to like the brooks before I discovered the kinvara too but now can't bear to put them on!
