    What a difference a proper fitting pair of shoes makes! Got some Brooks Ghosts through today on gait analysis recommendation and felt like I was sailing along on pillows - made me realise how little cushioning my old pegasus' have. Weirdly seemed to be quicker aswell!

    Any tips for keeping a nice slow pace for those long aerobic runs? Seems a bit of a silly question but all too often find my self just pushing myself a little faster and suddenly Kms gone and the breathing is a fair bit harder! Really trying to build a solid base layer of fitness but too tempting to gun it harder.

    More self discipline perhaps?

    On the plus side some lovely miles today down the canal to lime house, the tow path by Victoria park was even semi tolerable!!

    Long time lurker first time caller...

    Have been a non committed dabbler for a number of years, and finally picked up my mileage a bit last year and upped my furthest distance to 20km. Unfortunately probably overdid it and managed an adductor strain and plantar fasciitis 2 months apart which disrupted things somewhat.

    This year is the year to crack on - finally got some gait analysis booked in (albeit virtually via runandbecome) as I suspect I have a slight instep; and scored a place for the Berlin Mara of it goes ahead!

    Completely underestimated the meditative effect of lacing up and putting some miles in, really missed it when sidelined!

    Agreed! Those wounds are a bastard to suture anyway as not much subcutaneous tissue, and liable to tear due to the movement!

    Healing in that area can be tricky as it’s over a joint, so will be ‘disturbed’ every time the finger bends. Redness doesn’t always mean infection - local inflammation do the same thing. Any discharge? How old is the injury? Was it closed initially or just left to heal?

    Crossroads of Hackney Rd/Cambridge Heath Rd closed off at the moment, looks like Boris bike on the floor outside the overground station in front of an HGV that was turning left.

    Praying the rider's not injured too badly.

    I went half a size down for my Chambords.
