  • I've just given up on nimbus and moved to saucony progrid triumph - love them!
  • Don't run through it. I had knee pain a couple of weeks ago and have now pulled out of the half I was training for on the advice of a physio. My IT band is too tight and the knee was taking the brunt. I'm having twice-weekly deep tissue massage (OUC…
  • I ended up ditching Nimbus and going with Saucony ProGrid Triumph which I'm really liking. Walked around in them for a day and then took them out for a trot - very comfortable and probably prefer them over the Nimbus.
  • Ah, the left knee...I've just been told to stop running for a little while after I went to a physio with my sore left knee. It turns out the knee isn't the problem, it's my IT band. Have been going twice a week for deep tissue massage which makes me…
  • I have asthma and run...I've found it's taken a while but my asthma has become less of a problem the fitter I've become. At the beginning I had to run with the blue puffer and take it regularly whilst running, but now I tend to run with it just for …
  • Oh dear...it sounds all too common. I too went to the physio today with band problems - have been told that if I want to do the half I signed up for on March 25 I'll need a cortisone shot. Not sure I want to head down this route. Have been instructe…
  • Ahhh...I was a bear in the woods on my LSR on Sunday. Not an experience I am keen to repeat. I had 3 weetabix and an SIS gel before I went out. Am going to try jelly beans next time in an attempt to avoid the shrubbery. Have a half coming up next mo…
  • My kids do the Marwell Zoo run in May (think it's about 1 mile) and then another at Highclere Castle in September ({think this is about the same distance), but pretty sure neither of these is near Preston! I've had better luck entering them in triat…
  • Am training for the Fleet half as well...and have also had shin splint problems. Was convinced I was going to give up this running caper. However, have stretched more, go barefoot in the house, stand against the wall lifting my toes and the best thi…
  • I've had the numb toe issue too. Have just bought a pair of Adidas Supernova Glide after trying 8 different styles in the running shop. After describing the numb toes, the salesman didn't give me any Asics to try. Hope the Adidas work!
  • I don't bother with knickers - I go straight for compression bottoms, either the knee-length ones or 3/4 ones. I feel like the 'wobbly bottom' issue is kept a little more under control and find them very comfortable. I then wear my running capris on…
  • I agree with the buff...I run with it over my nose and mouth until I've warmed up and then move it down to my neck. The extra blue puffs before I set off also seem to help a little although I might take more as the run continues. Am going to give th…
  • Some of the 10k events I do have a kids 'race' beforehand - sometimes 1 mile, sometimes 1 km. My kids (aged 6, 7 and 8) really enjoy them especially as they get a little goody bag and a medal. I know they do it at the Marwell 10k and the Highclere 1…
  • I love them...have splurged and have many sets - Sugoi, Skins and Orca. Sugoi comes out tops for me, Agree that the Skins bobble and the stitching has started to go. I use them for running - as a girly I find everything jiggles a little less!
  • I have a 110  and upload my data to MapMyRun. I've also had trouble but work around it by uploading a file rather than selecting the Garmin option. Maybe there's an update you need. The Garmin website might have a fix.
