  • Where are the lumps on the lower leg? Shin splints spring to mind but I don't think the bumps disappear after the running stops.  Best off getting him to the GP for a diagnosis or referral to a Physio.
  • My two-penneth: Try on a variety of neutral low drop shoes and pick the most comfortable ones. https://curiosity.com/topics/3-myths-you-probably-believe-about-running-curiosity/
  • Aside from sodium, you'd get more nutritional value from SPAM.
  • Why when I can get all you mention by sticking to my regular diet? It's like saying "yeah, I know that pint of milk is good, but check this one out, it's covered in a coating that costs 80 euros".
  • Or you could stick to a balanced diet that would give you the same nutrients and you'd save 80£.
  • 80 euros for 50g. Are you for real?
  • I doubt the soon-to-be-dead pregnant sturgeon would agree.
  • I wouldn't depend on your Hoka experience as Nike sizes are probably different. If you can't try on a pair of 4% Vaporfly's (understandable as most are available mail-order), try on a pair of Zoom Fly's or any of the Flynit's for a reference point. …
  • davidbelton said: The only drawback is the vibration alerts are the same for everything (if I remember rightly) so you have to look at the device to see if it’s too fast or slow etc. I've not checked, but there's probably an App on Conne…
  • No need for SHOUTing. Post 10 times and you'll be golden.
  • I think you'll be safe enough with a cete of our native badgers, Callet. Honey badgers on the other hand, they're just plain batshit crazy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4r7wHMg5Yjg
  • It's nothing to be proud of, but back in the day I spent many an hour watching this in a drug-addled state: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NL6CDFn2i3Id I startled a buzzard once (there was a nesting pair in the local park) in the early hours and …
  • The Bus said: Yeah - it blows my mind, so have removed it   I love it. Just have to type an "a" for Amazon, "o" for Outlook, "t" for Tesco, "s" for Skybet, "g" for Guardian and "j" for explicit photos of Jennifer Lawrence. It's very int…
  • People brag about doing a 10 minute plank when they'd get the same physiological benefit from doing 4 x 1 min. Like Bus says, mix up the variations. 
  • Chrome also has the benefit of it's psychic ominbox that knows what you're going to type before you do.
  • If Chrome works, I wouldn't bother with Edge.
  • Stevie G said: Sounds a lot there Ric. Are you really doing 1,200 crunches in a session? In fairness, it was "crunchies". By any standard, that's a lorra fucking chocolate. Have you tried logging in to RA on a different browser, S…
  • Big_G said: Seals and dolphins are my favourite sights on my runs Do you actually live on the coast or do you snort ketamine before a run?
  • Cal Jones said: Where was this, Ynnec? Shrewsbury.
  • A badger was trundling down the pavement on the opposite side of the street once during an early morning run. Didn't even realize urban badgers were a thing till that point (foxes must have a better publicist). 
  • This assesses some of the breeds on your shortlist: https://www.runnersworld.com/runners-stories/a20810747/the-best-types-of-dogs-for-runners/ All the best.
  • Stevie G said: Hey hey, that wasn't a bad show. I loved it growing up. Septuagenarian shenanigans and Compo with a ferret down his trousers (we've all done that, right? Anyone?! Oh...). RicF said: More subduing is that he w…
  • I don't think it's a standard feature with any treadmill, but an iFit compatible one will have the capability (you'll need an iFit subscription and a compatible tablet to get the metric though). I've got a NordicTrack T7.0 and an iFit subscription b…
  • It wasn't an 'unintelligent' question. "What would happen if i bathed my Chihuahua in bleach?". Now that would've been one. 7 to go! All the best. p.s. I hope you don't have a Chihuahua. It'd be plain spooky if you did.
  • I agree with Cal & Gul; gait analysis is bollocks. Stick with trainers you feel comfortable in.
  • Hello, as you say, your perceived effort was the same as usual for the same pace, so I doubt it's a case of under recovery or overtraining. Do you wear a wrist based Heart Rate Monitor? If so, they can be somewhat erratic to say the least. Maybes…
  • You'll sweat far less, yet your pace will probably decrease, so run to effort (using a Heart Rate Monitor if possible). Sign up for, and run your local Parkrun. You'll enjoy it, maybe meet some peeps, and get a benchmark for future performances.  …
  • This'll rile the white supremacist elements in Trump's base: https://www.washingtonpost.com/dc-md-va/2019/03/01/how-black-man-outsmarted-neo-nazi-group-became-their-new-leader/?utm_term=.83b3d3b55462&wpisrc=nl_most&wpmm=1 I highly recommen…

  • Upper body movements to failure don't rely on the specific aerobic/endurance demands that running does. It's fine to incorporate strides at the end of your workouts but you'll get most benefit from the aerobic development of increased easy mileage; …
