I will keep you posted mate, ive a 9 miler to do on Wednesday so will probably give them another bash then.Cheers mate. I'll take a look at the tempos as well. Let us know how you get on with the Alphas after a few more runs.
There's a lot of choice out there at the moment (New Balance RC elite, Endorphin speed etc.) so I'd probably be best getting to a local running shop and trying them on before splashing out.
Yep theres loads of choice alright, I have a pair of the endorphin speed, they are good, very light not very "springy" but they are fast.
I find with the running shops its hard to find one with the trainers you want, would be great to be able to go in and try the likes of the vapourflys and alphas before splashing out a shit load of cash on them, but I dont see anywhere selling them apart from online.
