Continually updated running thread

Ahhh that’s why you put in ‘your kit’.
I thought that was just for flexing.


im using Nike downshift 9 I think they are, managed to get them in the sale. I’d like to go some where and get my running assessed and then I can get the right shoes rather then just winging it.

I can only think of sweatshop but I’m sure there’s a load of places that do them now. You might be fine if you’re already running in a neutral shoe and not experienced any problems.

Sounds like sciatica…?

Up and Running do an assessment on a treadmill using video for free, if you’ve got one near you

I wouldn’t wear zero drop shoes if you gave me them. All the people I know who have worn them have ended up with tight achillies/calves in the long term and one person with crippling plantar fasciitis. So unless you are as nimble as a yogi I would stay clear or wear them minimally.

Peg 37’s-Dont like mine and I gave worn many pairs of 34’s and 36s which I would have again.

I wear Hoka Rincon and Cliftons as everyday shoes… absolute luxury comfort for my hoofs.

Nice. Whats the film mentioned?

As far as I’m aware they were meant to be making short edits/profiles of some of their team at various races but obviously most of those got cancelled… I also forgot to mention a small amount from each sale goes to Mind UK.

Urgh, the last 3 or 4 runs have suuuucked.
Just can’t do it, feel like my legs and body have set concrete in them.
I usually start out well l, get a bit rubbish and then magically manage to get in the zone and everything’s great but lately I just can’t get in the zone stall.
As far as I’m aware nothin else has changed.
I’ll keep at it.

I find my legs/lungs/ligaments and tendons all get stronger as three separate groups and at different rates. Like, for a few runs it’s as if my lungs have got stronger and cope fine but my legs are catching up so they’re really achey. Then as you do longer/faster runs my legs are fine but your lungs are burning. Maybe your legs are just getting used to something you’re doing different/more of?

Been stripping the kitchen all day so no time to run decided to brave it this morning and it was really good. Loved it. I guess just needed time off.


Think I’ve got the new running habit going. Starting to feel the flow come on so I pushed myself a little further today. Bitter cold out though!
