Finally bought new trainers from a running shop. 

Tips for breaking them in? 

Go out running?

There's absolutely no way I could stick a treadmill for ten miles. I'd be bored stupid.

Anyway, yesterday's run was the slowest for a while, at 5'04"/km. I'm hoping to run the Edinburgh Half in about 4'50"/km, which should hopefully see me come in just shy of 1:42. But to be honest I'd be happy with anything under 1:45.

A combination of podcasts (which I listen to on a normal run) and having the TV on saw me through. Despite having the sound on, it being half six in the morning and not knowing who Sky News' two guests were, I was still able to instantly work out which one was representing the pro-Brexit side.

Pretty much really, if you went to a running shop and had your gait looked at and likely spent a few quid they will be ready to go.

Another five miles tonight. 4'57"/km pace, could have probably pushed it a bit more but legs still a bit sore from yesterday's run and squats last night.

Cheers. I could've elaborated tbh! Aiming for 13 miles tomorrow and had concerns about doing that in new trainers but managed to get out for a few miles last night!

Delighted with my run today. Managed 22 miles in just over three hours (and I was deliberately trying not to go too fast in the first half). Took gels about every hour to get used to them.

Much more confident about London now. Six weeks to go - a few more runs like that and I'll be more than happy.

Weirdly, I am. Nice splits mate. Was Km no 3 hilly?

I've often thought about posting my Runkeeper map / stats, but they all start and end at my house and I don't want you all coming round to rob me when I'm not in.

Cheers! Yeah km3, km8 and km9 all had pretty lengthy uphill sections.

I know on Strava you can set a 'privacy' section so that it doesn't show the exact start and end position.

Fifteen miles had to do today, got to Queen Street station at 15 on the button and could not be fucked looping about the town centre to make up an extra mile.

Had the joy of finishing via Possil, which certainly encouraged me to keep moving.

I used to use a running belt something like this.  I run with this one now, using the pouch for three gels and putting the rest into one of the bottles.  It's much less fiddly that way.  The other bottle starts with water in it, and I top it up at water stations when I'm running low.  Keeps me out of the chaos that can be the scramble for hydration!

I don't bother with anything on training runs - I think it's useful to get your body used to having to cope with what it's got - but I wouldn't change my strategy for the marathon now.  That said, might not work for you (just to cover myself)!

I have ordered the one you use now from Amazon (using vouchers from doing surveys so it's cost me nothing!) so will get some practice with that and see how it works. Might end up using it without the bottles if it's too bulky or heavy.

Did 7 miles last night.

Had a bit of a rest week last week (still running/working out plenty but generally taking it a bit easier) as was feeling pretty fatigued on my runs both physically and mentally.

Seems to have helped as average pace was 7:30 which is about 40 seconds per mile faster than my previous best on that run.

Had 8 days away from any running due to work and some kind of horrible virus where I was utterly fucked for days my whole body was aching.

Anyway went for a wee recovery run to ease back into it this afternoon.  Ended up fucking flying out the blocks (well for me anyway) did 5k knocking  90 seconds off my personal best in the process 30:05 which I was amazed with.
