Shoe choice

Posted: 30/12/2014 at 21:55

Sounds like a neutral, cushioned shoe would suit but best option may be to go back to the same road shoe you were using before you started getting problems.

Shoe choice

Go to a different running shop. Although arch height/foot shape is a very generalised concept, a high arch is supposed to be an indicator of a supinator/under-pronator which would match your wear descripiton.  Did they watch you run at all or examine your current running shoes?

How old are your shoes?  If they're old and your problems are recent and not linked to an increase or dramatic change in training, maybe just buy a new pair of your current shoes.  If the shoes are new, are they the same as you've had before?

Other options, a sport massage may help if the problems are just a result of muscular tightness or imbalances or a see a sports physio to identify what's causing your problems.

Not sure I understand what the problem is. If it's not interfering with your running perfomance why would you need to change anything?

Tights on cover of February 2015 UK edition

Posted: 28/12/2014 at 19:16

If you like patterned tights you could try fehrtrade.com London based runner and designer. Although the site is for patterns for kit, apparently they can make them for you but no idea what that costs.

Garmin 610 help

Posted: 28/12/2014 at 16:10

Yes Laura, remove Ant device, switch 610 off then back on again then reconnect the Ant. Then, if necessary, scan for device.

I don't actually have a 610 but assume the menus are fairly standard across all Forerunners.  You should be able to check if the update has intalled on your watch either by going into the 'settings' menu and selecting 'about Forerunner', or, if you're using Garmin Express, I think it tells you what software you're on in the top left hand corner of the Express screen.

Running on Thin Ice

Posted: 28/12/2014 at 16:00

Not sure about trail shoes. I've found them more slippy on ice than road shoes. That may just be me though.

Any tips for running in icy weather!

Posted: 28/12/2014 at 15:55

Ice is about the only condition which will stop be foing for a run.  If possible, as the elf says, head off road; if that's not an option, treadmill at the gym is safer than risking a fall on icy pavements.

New Year

Posted: 28/12/2014 at 14:03

Not resolutions, just targets:

Stay off the smokes - 3 weeks so far and feeling the benefit but I've been throuigh this so many time before and failed after various intervals

Get my house into saleable condition and hopefully move to something more suitable

Maintain consistent training.
