People need their first-world problems sorting; don't make light of it.


True, true.

I was deeply upset today as i forgot my running shoes so can't get out at lunchtime. That is surely someone (else's) fault. I need to blame someone! [/b]


absolutely...i am surprised that there isn't a charity for this that supplies temporary shoes for those in distress...our thoughts are with you in this distressing time...


Now there's a new business idea - no one wants to own their own trainers and running kit and have the worry about laundry and not having the most up to date stuff. For 20 a session we'll deliver shoes and kit to your chosen address and we'll collect them from you again later in the day Wink Rolling Eyes

I don't know about ParkRun being a major source of running injuries, but the big mass participation events like the London Marathon definitely are. Loads of people sign-up with no running background and try to go from zero to a marathon in less than 6 months. Then they wonder why they get injured, but they try to push on through the injury because they're committed to their charity fund raising.

A bloke at work did this and ran injured with unsurprising results. He then did nothing for 6 months, before signing up again for the next year with exactly the same outcome Rolling Eyes

yep - i've been saying that for years...

UKA used to advise 4 years to prepare for a marathon...but dropped that when they saw how much of their market it would affect...
