    I lost big toenail running (well fair bit of walking) Athens Marathon after having no problems during training. Since then I have notice the toe sits up a little higher at the front than the other, meaning the nail would have been hitting the top of the shoe rather than the front of the toe taking the impact (of course being a fat git and taking 6 hours might have played a part).

    Thinking that lighter shoes with a sock like top might be better to reduce impact (using Asics at the moment).

    Only 2! Are you forgetting about the Icelandic Bankers that still own a part share?

    It's hardly making the headlines you'd expect in Nigeria either and their President has said more about the attacks in France that the latest attacks in his own country (an election coming up so doesn't want to admit to problems probably). The Nigerian Army is now claiming only 150 deaths including members of Boko Haram, which shows how little anyone know about what is going on.

    Thanks for sticking that up, the first 2 sold out before I saw them and am diving in Cornwall the first extra date in Sept they put on.

    I got this which is big enough for work plus uni kit, the side straps are pretty good at compressing the bag, so although is it quiet large a lot of that is space that can be pulled in. Only had a fun runs with it though.

    Maybe I'll get as far as filling out the form and writing a cheque, if he's really against it I send him on a cooking or butchery course which might have more benefit for me!

    Sounds like a club membership might be a good idea, think his nearest one is Maidstone harriers and looks positive from their website. And maybe some more socks!

    Anyone used a running coach? Are they any good and would it be worthwhile for one or two sessions?
    Looking for ideas for birthday present for my brother, as he seems to have all the kit he needs for running so was think this could be useful as he's just starting training for his second marathon.

    All just a power trip for those leading ULU unfortunately, was clearly going to go this way as it gets them in the media spotlight.
