Flasket, I ran every day in October (Ronhill challenge) but injured my big toe at the end, didn't run in November and I've just had Shingles so won't be out again until the new year. The rest will do me good!

Want to get a GPS watch for tracking my runs but want one that I can also wear all day as a fitness tracker. The only one I've found so far that seems to be able to do both is a Fitbit Surge, are there any other options out there? Preferably closer to a ton?

Cheers stoney that looks pretty decent, shame I missed the deal though

rest up beni lad. shingles are nothing to mess around with.
edw man, i think my activities automatically go to strava too, but i haven't been on there in ages to view em.
a forerunner 10 would be more than sufficient i think. i've got a 305 that is coming up on nine years old and it still works great.

Recommendations on decent running shoes?
Edit: Preferably under £150. Was thinking of going for ultra boosts.

boost is a good all rounder I would say, for sure FUK approved

Sounds good. How do they fit?

Id say snug, but I dont really believe you can give size advice as everyone bases on something different, best to buy from a running store instore or online buy 2 sizes send back the one thats not right in my opinion

Boosts come in half sizes, I'd say size down a half if using for running.

I'd size up at least 1/2 size to 1 size in boost(Boston model) or ultraboost, they fit snug.
Especially if you are planning to run long distance.

point proven with the above 2 posts

I would buy based on your gait/pronation - not just 'a good running shoe' if your looking to run decent distance (over 10K IMO). A good running shop will have a treadmill and assessor to analyse your running style. Or you can go based on your foot arch imprint when you come out the shower (high/low arch).
I presume you don't know all of this as your just taking up running, if not apologies.

I have always used the asics GT2000 series and avoided Nike and Adidas with the view that they are more fashion and not proper running shoe.
Am I missing out?
