Too much toe room?

Posted: 29/01/2015 at 22:21

GTS is available in a wide fit  as are some Asics.

What distances do you run. If less than 10 miles you'll possibly get away with less room in front of your toes; anything above that, smaller size is likely to cause loss of toe nails.

One way bike commute (wimped out of riding home in hail/sleet storm) but did drag myself out for a little run once it stopped.

Outlaw Bike Feedstation 26 July 2015

Posted: 28/01/2015 at 18:18

After combining relay swim leg and feed station for the last couple of years, this year I'm going for a solo effort this year with the aim of not being last pirate home again.

Having said that, it was the best finish experience ever so I might just go extra slow to enjoy it again

Tippy tippy or heel to toe?

Posted: 27/01/2015 at 22:09

Must be frustrating Steve. Forefoot striking puts much more load on the lower leg than heel striking and it can take time for the muscles to adapt. 

You could try keeping your run distances really short for a while to give your calves time to adapt. Other than that, not sure what to suggest except working on improving your calf strength and lots of stretching.

I never realised how much benefit I got from dog walking 1-3 miles twice a day but I've noticed I seem to be more prone to aches and pains since I no longer have dogs  

On a happier note, my mojo seems to have returned

Know what you mean Seren. Sitting looking at training schedule trying to work out in advance what changes I may need to make and therefore what to set as my longest session for each week.
