Anyone ordered from Tracksmith’s website recently and comment on additional charges shipping to UK? Read somewhere that they now cover import duties and it seems they do from looking at their website but can anyone confirm?

Pretty sure I have Plantar fasciitis been running 40K+ a week for the last year. Been running through it last two week hoping it would go away but it’s not. Any recommendations for a fast recovery? I cycle 15k a week and on my feet all day so can’t really “rest”. Cheers.

anyone else suffered from runner's bladder? Pretty disconcerting, although had the all clear, but slightly apprehensive to go back to full tilt.

I get that, not every time I run though - but usually after a race. First time that it happened was very disconcerting.

only had it once and not even after a long or intense run. been running/doing intervals 6 days a week, but seemingly it's usually after long distances.

I had this about 6 Months ago, I would recommend to stop running as soon as possible and it give it time to heal, do the YouTube exercises everyday. Give it at least two weeks. It sucks as I found stopping tough but I kept on running on it at first and it got worst. Funnily enough mine has started playing up this week going to try and lay off it for a few days fingers crossed.

Nice spot!
These are the ones that last about 50 miles before the benefits of the springy foam/carbon plate begin to deteriorate?

After being off with hamstring tendonitis for about 10 months or so I've got a pile of lightly used Bondi 7's from my shoe tree fella that I need to start wearing.

I haven't tried the Next2% but I love my Tempo Next% - they really pop, even after 100 miles. The outsole looks more durable too which makes sense as they are a training shoe.

Has anyone tried both and is there a significant difference?

I have all three Tempo, alphafly and vaporfly. In term of performance, it is hard to find a difference between AF and VF - I find the AF to be more resistant - and I continue wearing them even though the flyknit is torn (small holes).
Those two pairs are probably too expensive for day-to-day training, but I managed to find good discounts (e.g. -40/50% on AF and VF on shop4runners) and bought 2 pairs of each models

Tempo are nice for day-to-day training, and is a bit cheaper, but I never managed to find a pair with a decent discount, so they end up costing almost the same than the AF and VF.

Strava is telling me I need new shoes, I don’t need much more encouragement than that.

My last few pairs have been zoom flys and was thinking of upgrading to vaporflys this time. Anything else worth considering? I tried Hokas on in the past and they’re too narrow for me.

I got the gyakusou VF from the SNS sale. Will be backing unless anyone wants for what I paid plus postage. They cost £162

Size UK9.5 in the spruce green

Gutted to return but they are way too narrow. So bear that in mind

Cheers for this. Ordered them and the vaporflys, went with the vapors as they’re similar to what I’m used to but tempos look great too. Will get a pair if I see them on sale.
