Another record breaking feat for the 4 minute mile man, especially as he's still alive.

New Bose SIE2i sport headphones.

Those hook things any good for keeping them in place or do I want the ones that go over the ear?

Over the ear every time. From a few pages back, really getting on with these, I use them for running at least 5 times a week and I have no complaints whatsoever…

They also have a remote on them which is compatible with a nano (haven't checked if it works with my iphone but I assume it does).

I use standard iphone earphones and just hold my iphone, always worry about falling and dropping it but it's never happened and the earphones never fall out

Trying to take on the 365 day challenge (basically a run a day for a year, bare minimum 2 miles per day). My achilles tendon's aching a couple of weeks in, not to the point where I'd stop but it is a real niggle - any suggested remedies?

I've been entered into the great north run and have been accepted. I didn't know until I received the email last week. My pal who is doing it did it, cunt. I'm going to attempt it.

Suffered with bad back pain for months and gained weight. Any decent running tips,plans I should start with? Ill be attempting this from scratch but have until September to prepare. Going to have my run filmed and trainers recommended this weekend. Anything else?

Prob due to lack of recovery time - not sure how you can get around this other than maybe doing a morning run one day then evening run next day?

At one point I was doing min 4 miles 5 days a week with 2 rest days (mon and fri) with no niggles at all.

Laughing out loud nice mate

Get your trainers sorted, google how to warm up, run/walk 5 mins then warm down. When you can run all 5 mins, up it to 10 mins, then 15. When you can do 20 mins non stop without any problem, look online for half marathon training plans and take it from there, you've got loads of time.

I've had back problems, keeping fit & active is the best thing to stop it coming back.

Cheers. I'm not going to back out of it with him having it on me I bottled it. I'm quite determined, so hopefully I'll be fine if my back holds out. Cheers for the tips. I'll get my trainers sorted and go from there.

Oxford circus one stock the sport collection, so does the covent garden one.
There used to be a H&M sport pop-up shop on Mercer street in covent garden too but not sure if it's still there

New season's out soon, there's some in the lookbook. Otherwise the Nike swift ones are the same design and only £50ish.
