Wayne Lyle Shoe review

Asics 2xxx series: 2160- Excellent running shoe with good cushioning and mild support, good for any distance for the mild over pronator I had no problem with these when I used them. 2170- Well built up shoe, more so than previous model and excellent support (if you need it), unfortunately too much support for me and not enough responsiveness but to be fair they are not in the responsive catego…

Back at Watford again! This time it was for a 5000m, after racing around 9days days ago my legs were perfectly recovered for a fast 5k.

My plan was to start off easy at the back of the pack and run the race progres…
