I use these - http://www.inov-8.com/new/global/Product-View-FLite-195-Blue-Red.html

Great for running, light (.4 pounds) flat and quick dry if you run tracks.. Also quite handy if you do interval training or combo training between cardio/olympic lifting/gym or any similar to crossfit thanks to the low profile midsole

Absolutely, We've often turned these kind of things in to mini meet ups where the couple of Canberra members go for a beer/coffee and look at a few things. But it can also be organised one on one, at your home or office provided it's not before 5.30pm. There is of course no obligation to buy anything. Just pm me if there is anything you want to check out.[/quote]

Always keen to meet other members, but I'll get onto it more when things settle down a bit here.

The votes seem to reflect that ...

Yep, that was my concern initially, but I think 42mm should be okay on my wrist, assuming I wear it with a nylon zulu strap. The 'oversize' look would work excellently in the more casual setting I'm envisioning for it. I'm not going to impulse buy as it'd take a few months to get to Aus anyway (ships end of May or something) so in the mean-time I'm going to see if I can try on some similar sized dive watches (with hefty lugs like the prodiver) and figure out if I like the feel of 'em on my wrist or whether I should just say 'feck it' and save up for the titanium Tudor Pelagos (which also catches my fancy).

I know I come to you guys for everything but hey, you know your stuff.

Does anyone know how to go about getting a good CBD type haircut? Do you go to a barber, a stylist or a hairdresser?

I have wavy brown hair and suit cuts on the longish side (no homo) and I'm over going to hairdressers who want to do short back and sides.

Our hopes rest with him. I hope there's no stylenox scandal down the track.

Who are all those other people, and why are so many of them wearing shrunken suits that make them look like Peewee Herman?

I'm not sure, my hair dresser used to have a salon in the CBD but now works with his son in Kensington.

 

I also have curly hair and share your pain.  It takes a lot more work by both the hair dresser and myself to make it look good, even tame, at anything but a short length.  As you say, you need someone to do everything (except the sideburns and back edge) with scissors.  I pay about $40 for mine and he spends about 35-45 minutes, so I'd expect it will cost you more in the CBD.

Thanks, JM!

In answer to your question, their 'personal style', perhaps?

Anyone interested in a pair of Meermin snuff chukkas in 10.5UK? Lovely shoes, unworn, just the last doesn't suit my feet.

Sydney isn't bad. Guys, I am getting barefoot running. Any suggestions on shoes? Does anyone know a good website that has excellent 5,000 metre 12-20 week training programs?

Don't those two sentences contradict each other?! ;-)


Anyway, going on the assumption that you want a really light pair of running shoes, there are pleeeenty of options out there nowadays as most of the running brands - Nike, Brooks, New Balance, Asics etc have introduced very light shoes with minimal support.

My only experience is with the Nike Free Run range and I love them. I've got a pair of the Nike Free Run 3.0 (I think?) and it has a "sock" rather than a separate tongue, which I really like. (For those of a certain vintage amongst us, they feel similar - albeit lighter - than the famous Nike Huarache running shoes of the early 1990s.)

I've got two friends who run marathons and one of them swears by Brooks and the other loves Asics, so I suppose that the best thing to do is to go to a store that sells shoes for runners and try on quite a few different models.

With regard to the Nike free range, the lower the number, the less the support - so the Free Run 3.0 has a lighter sole and less padding/support than the 4.0, which has less padding/support than the 5.0.

Of course, there are also really lightweight "shoes" like the Vibram Five Fingers, but they are definitely an acquired taste!

I'm no expert, but if you're going from a more heavily-padded, traditional sort of jogging shoe to a light shoe, ease into it. Don't lace on a pair of Free Run 3.0s and go out and run 20km as your feet will not be used to it and you might hurt yourself. Lighter shoes also encourage you to land more on the ball of the foot and thus reduce heel strike, but it can take a little while (and a little bit of muscular discomfort) until you adjust your running/jogging style.
