    You mean over and unders? They are indeed horrible, I think they're the hardest / 'best' workout on TR.

    Totally know what you mean about the unders, you expect it to be the end of the suffering, but it's only a diluted form of it.

    Righto folks, am in the market for some new running shoes.

    Having seen a physio (due to some running and riding related tendinits) and had a gait analysis at runner’s need, it appears that I need neutral shoes, even though I currently use Brooks Ravennas, which are for over-pronation.

    I know it’s a really broad question, but, any recommendations on good sneaks? Anything that’s getting rave reviews at the moment, are on sale etc etc? I don’t really read up on running stuff and rarely venture into the running section of wiggle and the like so don’t know where to start at the moment.

    Running is a secondary activity to riding for me, so I don’t really want to spend any more than about £70 if poss. I have narrow feet should that make a difference. I’m also planning on going back to runners need and trying some out.

    Danke

    I'm hoping to get some more of my calf / shin done soon too. I've been told that around the Achilles is one of the worst places, and that's where I've got done already. But something is scaring me about the shin a bit.

    Sorry for what will i imagine be a hugely asked question, but the next piece I want is going to be quite old school / sailor style - any recommendations for places in South / East / Cental London to go please?

    How was this guys? I kept my eyes peeled for you but didn't see a bunch of hipsters in amongst the fat 40 years old bankers on 5k bikes when I was out and about.

    Thanks for the kudos @eyebrows, but, trust me, I felt very slow and weak today. A week or so of little riding and being a touch under the weather took its toll. It's amazing how hard hills feel when you're on an off day!

    Now to go clean all the filth off my bike. Bah.

    I'm happy to organise a kent ride until Directeur Sportif Henry is back in town. Probably of a standard club run / café stop / focus on group work theme. but not til my legs feel better.

    I imagine I'd be OK (although I bet it will be 'hard' with you and @6pt drilling it on the front), but just don't want to commit to anything so I can plot a route as I go according g to how the problem foot / ankle feels.

    I will however be riding in much the same area as you lot so keep her eyes peeled for me!

    Sorry guys, gonna have to bail on this. Have got a touch of tendinitis from running (what a ridiculous activity) and need to go careful so don't want to commit to anything too long for a week or so

    Not read any of the above, but @TTM has done it loads of times - maybe PM him

    Has anyone used one of the site's training programme? How are they?

    I tend to just pick workouts based on the descriptions in the library without thinking too much how they interplay, so structure may be good. Or boring.
