    Yes an American who runs the website as a Charity, albeit staffed with a large number of well paid staff, and through the website promotes his books.

    Not convinced OP but do agree with the old adages (although not often good at living by them!) – we are what we eat and everything in moderation.

    @connie I agree. Lots of money behind the whole…[Read more]

  • Does that mean you are expecting to be relegated as well?

  • @lilly I had a pair from the running shop so would hope they are decent – £8 a pair, no brand name that I can see on them though. I feel a bit of a fraud right now as I’m only up to a 3 min run! But if the shoes kill after 20 mins of walk/run with 3 min burst of running then I’m not going to make much progress. I really, really need for this to…[Read more]

  • I wonder if it’s to do with the support level. Asics are quite supportive through the arch – I wear them as my feet are quite flat. Maybe the support is too much for you? And then possible sizing issues with some of the others?

    @beckye Thanks – you may have something there as I can feel the support in these and the Saucony ones – I did think…[Read more]

  • Thanks soccergal the Brookes were for sure too narrow, but the ASICs and Saucony ones seemed to have plenty of width, in fact I thought that was the problem originally, thought they were too wide/big. I will look at Merrells, and maybe some other lighter types. The ASICs are trail running shoes, but I liked them better than any others in…[Read more]

  • Could I ask for some advice from any of you experienced runners please? I started the couch to 5k thing a few weeks back. I needed some trainers and went to a shop where they do gait analysis (all good, I’m ‘neutral’) and sold me a pair of Saucony trainers at £90. Cheapest they do but significantly over the budget I had in mind!! First time out I…[Read more]

    Moyes was meant to replicate Fergie and he went after 10 months.

    I’m not Mourinhos biggest fan either but his methods work and whilst City are flying, sacking your manager or wanting him to leave would only exacerbate an issue that currently really isn’t an issue.

  • faye replied to the topic Coccyx Pain in the forum Health 1 week, 3 days ago

    You most likely fractured it, I have done it ages ago. Just put a cushion on the chairs and pain killer and it will eventually heal.

  • As others have said, some shoes definitely exacerbate it so chuck out any that do. I have also used over-the-counter insoles if I know I am going to be walking a lot.

    It seems to come in bouts for me, rather than being constant. Five years ago it was so painful that even taking my wellies off made me cry with pain so I do sympathies but mine does…[Read more]
