Best long distance running socks??

Posted: 25/09/2014 at 19:23

I use the same socks regardless of distance. Love the Thorlos Experia, don't get on at all with any of the 'twin skin' type socks.

Are you sure it's your socks which are causing the blisters?

Could you hold a conversation while you're running?  If not, you're trying too hard.

Any training plan is a guide. Might be worth going back to the couch to 5k again but do each week twice if necessary. When you reach the point where it all goes pear shaped, repeat the previous week until it feels easy before moving on to the next week and do that one several times if necessary.

It may be that you need to take a step backwards in order to move forwards.

Oh, and the 'runners high' is an elusive beastie. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't

Hi Thommo, off topic but did you recently request to join the PSOF group on Garmin Connect?

I did indeed

Great, now we know who you are, you're in. There's a garmin connect thread for the group on here somewhere if you want to pop in and introduce yourself

Good idea Meldy. From a quick look at other groups, I think if they click on the group name they should be able to see it, if they just click on 'request membership' they wont. 

We could alway amend the location to 'High seas, public houses and RW UK Tri forums'

 

Bucklers hard oly

Posted: 20/09/2014 at 14:05

Done 3 events at Bucklers Hard, two Swashbucklers and a sprint (which no longer happens). All of them were alleged to be at slack tide. For two of them the tide was barely noticable. At one of the Swashbucklers, according to spectators, the gun went off, the water turned white as everyone started to swim, and no-one went anywhere! The out leg of that swim was tough, the return leg was fab

Tidal river swim is only fun if you're a reasonable swimmer.
