Anonymous asked: Hey! Do you have any advice for shin splints? I got new shoes and they seem to be helping a bit but is there anything else I can do? I've gone from running 4x a week to 2 and I hate it :(
I’ve never had shin splints so can’t really offer advice. What I’ve been told is that these problems tend to start higher up the body with form rather what you’ve got on your feet. Although wearing shoes that are too cushioned can lead to masking poor running style which in turn can lead to injury.
fit-madness asked: Hey! I just found out your blog and your running tips are great! As a new runner, thank you so much! ;) Please keep posting them! I'm gonna keep improving until I can compete with you! Haha! (Yeah, it's going to take a couple of years...)
Thanks for your message. Glad you like the tips. Hope to see you out there someday in charing on ahead in front of me!
runningontheedgeofacliff asked: See you on the start line, I ran from Penzance to Porthcurno today which included the section that guy was on, as bad as it seems it's not actually too gruelling, though maybe after running so long it might seem it, but there are a few horrible downhill/uphill bits later on that'll get to you, from about Mousehole onwards you're really looking at the hardest section, just thought it'd be worth giving you a heads up :)
Hey there. Good to meet a fellow CQ44 runner and get some insights from someone who knows the terrain. You’re lucky to be able to train on the trails. My hill running hasn’t been nearly often enough. Got a few weeks to really throw myself into it without killing myself for the day. Will you be camping down there?
