    How do the flyknit chukka's come up for size?

    Contacted Chain Reaction this morning as the sole on some flyknits I bought there was lifting off slightly at the back.
    asked for photos by lunch time, just refunded the money, don't want the trainers back.

    off to buy some glue

    I've got a garmin 610. pretty good generally,
    Occasionally takes a few restarts to find satellites but for some reason I find this is generally when I haven't downloaded the info on it for while.
    Don't use a HRM so can't comment on that,
    Virtual partner setting i found really useful recently when I was doing a Half Marathon to check i was staying on pace, compensating after hills etc.
    The only thing I wish is that it was possible to programme it for more complicated intervals but there may be a way around this, I haven't fully investigated.
    The screen isn't mega sensitive for navigation, trying to click some of the options with big fingers is a bit hit and miss sometimes but this is generally after running to view the session, rather than while running.

    Overall, pretty good.

    can't offer any advice I'm afraid but i just wanted an excuse to post I did Liverpool half marathon in 1.38.41 yesterday, target was 1.40. A PB by 4 minutes, I'm made up.

    sorry, had to get that out

    any recommendations?

    looking for new trainers, I overpronate and need a lot of cushioning.
    Currently using
    1.Nike Structure for short distances, feel fast and light but not cushioned enough, wouldn't like to wear them for anything over 5 miles

    1. Mizuno wave Nirvanna, have worn several pairs of them but now I've tried something else they feel like clogs, foot position seems to encourage plodding [maybe because the heel is so built up] but I feel no pain in them.

    Want something inbetween, ideally, something suitable for longer runs [over 10 miles] but reasonably light.
    if they were sub £100 that would be a bonus too.

    was spectating at Liverpool Half on sunday, busy spots in some places but they came in along the river for the last 4 miles with a shocking headwind and no bugger clapping or shouting. I stopped a couple of times to cheer but the sound of one person clapping is worse than nothing, although a couple of people did actually say thanks!

    I'm not at home this week but back on Sunday. Let me see if I can wedge them in a Jiffy bag. PM me your address in case I succeed. Sorry for delay.

    Will do

    Cheers

    Sorry, I missed this. Not sure I've got anything I can post them in. Are you in London anytime soon?

    Not for a bit I don't think, I'll let you know if I am, otherwise don't worry.
