Running shoes

normal trainers can cause shin splints and other problems, buy a pair of running trainers you can get them cheap enough. definitely by a decent soap dish tho

A good pair of running trainers will save you injuring yourself and can helps you with your running style/time. It is worth popping into a good running shop to get them to check out your running style.

You do. Hi-Tec silver shadows, killer. They should bring back the Dunlop Green Flash though, they ruled all.
I found a pair of Silver shadows in a surplus shop for a fiver. Binned them the day after :roll:

Had a pair of Dunlop Green Flash a while ago. They were comfy :)

Do new entrants still have to wipe their own arses or does the instructor now do it ??? Jeez... I bet the MT section have loads of probs getting all the lick off the coach windows after delivering these quarter wits.

Apparently stores here are issuing some new style Hi-tecs for now.. From what i've heard they're actually proper running shoes this time and not the silvershadow concrete weights.

They look pretty nifty.. but unfortunetly, bright white.. so not too sure how long they'll stay that way. but am taking a set out tommorrow as my shadows have had it.

Those are the fcuking things I was issued, ruined your shins/ankles/knees, the sides of the soles wore out after a couple of rope climbs and make fasts, were a pain in the arrse to keep blanco'd ...

oh and did I mention they fcuked up your ankles/shins/knees too.

I still don't understand, to this day, why we didn't get issued any decent running shoes, especially as we had to pound miles in those fcuking instruments of torture!!!!! And I joined up in 1990, not exactly eons ago (you could get decent trainers at the time)

Edited to add: I still have the fcuking things in my loft too, along with my skin tight white rugby shirt and cotton shorts.
Hmmmmm, got me thinking Jimbo. I still have my canvas kitbag, suitcase, No2's, itchy blue jumper and stokers cap, but where did those plimsolls end up?
