    I remember those trainers, my dad had a pair in 1992 I think it was. They must be decent if they are still sold

    Road slappers! Iv ran 7 min 30 mile and a half’s wearing those, honest to god the most comfy trainers iv ever worn yeah they look s**t but they really are a good trainer for any kind of running I agree with @Stevieo theres no need to be spending a fortune on trainers unless your some kind of athlete. It’s like buying a ritmo when all you do is patching

    my mate got a pair of running sandles recently, lightweight things that just protect your soles from the tarmac, apparently the idea was to recreate the natural running technique of years ago.

    One thing I do know I really need to get power to gym and get a tv on wall as running on a treadmill staring at a breeze block wall is Painful

    I hear you Brother. Training is hard and being self motivated can be tough. If you've got any paths or lanes or canals anywhere near by, bin the gym and just run.

    I took up running again with my dog along the canal. Saved walking, after all.

    Joking aside, try to make it fun. I had a dog to exercise and nice scenery.

    The goal was to run the dog into the ground. Never did manage that.

    “Born to run” is a good book for those who like running .An elusive Indian tribe had these sandals, which were then copied by athletes world wide.

    There's one African tribe that hunt by simply being able to run faster than the animals. They basically just run after it until it falls down dead from exhaustion.

    Good luck getting so fit that you can do that, put the Impala on your shoulder and run 40 miles back, with calories to spare for your mates and their wives.

    Think twice before you look at natives for fitness tips. Especially their trainers because they don't wear any.

    You know it. Them racing ni9gers can do a marathon in 04:42 a mile. I consider that a sprint if I do it interval training on a treadmill. There isn't a way in the world that I'd ever be able to keep that up for two hours.

    @Tinytom claimed a 5 minute mile x 1.5 a few posts back. I don't doubt him on that. My best ever was a little slower at 08:20, which is still pretty darn fit.

    But neither of us could claim zooming round a marathon like that. I did one in 02:56 when I was 22. That's a FULL HOUR behind the professionals, who come almost exclusively from Africa. In fact, there's a village who export looney tunes runners.
