Do we know how moonstomping affects pace and cadence? 🤣

I only tested it on an uphill walk - am testing it on a 10k run tomorrow, but how can moon stomping be anything other than perfect? ;)

Here here!!! Lol x

Fantastic! I’m off to download it now!! Thanks all xxx

Excellent compilation Jancanrun . I've loved my two tone playlist, which I've been out to a few times, but I will add in some of the additional ones from your list. I think I may need to start using spotify, then I'd save myself the job of putting them into Deezer.

I hope all is well with you. It feels like ages since I've seen a post from you, but that's probably because Don't seem to have had much time to get on-line of late.

Hi - yes I have been a bit quiet - migraines a go-go, and so I've limited my social media stuff, as I just couldn’t do the screen time - hence the delay in releasing the playlist. I love two tone and ska and test-walked this one at the weekend, but added in a few more today.

Hope you’re well? I am back in UK for one week beginning September - possibly a PCT opportunity?

I did just under 10k this morning and it’s a perfect beat all over. I loved Monkey Man and Tom Hark both of which came on at just the right times

I love it too, it was a brilliant playlist - ran 10.4km this morning and then followed it up with a slower 5km, about 20 minutes later. The cadence just works so well - not my brilliance really - just all the contributors
