Hi has anyone ever done the pier to pier before? I quite fancied it but do you think it'll be too soon for me because its only two weeks after my first 10k.

When is it Stotty - I've heard of it but obviously not run if before but as I'm now living in the North West I'm looking for local races to enter. You could look on your 10k as a training run for the Pier to Pier run.

Yeh the only thing i'm worried about is running 15k on tarmac roads, i'm used to gravel tracks etc and my knees play up every now and again.

As long as its not too wet & windy.

Stotty - what shoes are you running in? Maybe you need a bit of extra cushioning when you are running on roads/pavements.

Well when i started i went to a running shop at got fitted for a pair of Brooks but ive just bought a pair of Nike + so i can fit the training chip in and check my progress. I feel that they are much more comfy then my Brooks at the mo.

Not sure it says zoomair underneath them but ive got rid of the box now. No i didnt go to the running shop for them this time i bought them from jjb but they feel great the Brooks shoes started to make me sore on my inside heels not rubbing me but when i put my fingers over the sore bit it felt lumpy (gross i know) but since ive been using the others ive been ok.

Why how much mileage do you do in a month? If they have a challenge for the least i'd win hands down.

I ran this race when there was a pier in Fleetwood, the route was very flat and followed the sea wall, for the most part the views was a little boring. Only down fall was a number of cyclist who was coming in the opposite direction. A great start to increasing the length of runs, I followed that one up with the Longridge 7, now thats a run and a half
