Kitting yourself out for your first ultra marathon

Running your first ultra can be quite daunting. Hopefully, you will have already run a few marathon events but moving up to a first ultra of perhaps 30-45 miles takes the challenge to a new level for a number of reasons. Most marathons are road events, whereas most ultras are on trails or mixed terrain. Because of the longer distance, you will be going slower and check-points/drinks stations are t…

Brooks Caldera Review

I had been looking forward to these shoes arriving with us as I had tried on the sample pair in pre-production and loved the initial feel.For me these should be an ideal shoe as I am training for a trail ultramarathon in 2017 so for the training, and possibly the race as well, I think I have my shoe for my requirements. What makes it ideal for me is it is a trail shoe with extra cushioning; Brooks…

Brooks Shoe Reviews

GB Athlete and prolific local runner Sam Amend reviews her choice of Brooks shoes:The Brooks Hyperion is a lightweight racing shoe. I love the look of these trainers and they feel like slippers when putting them on.  After some initial short runs in them, they seemed like the perfect racing shoe for me and, as one of the lower cost shoes, will set you back a reasonable £90. Having broken them in…

Stryd Power Meter - first look

The guys at Apex Sports have given me one of these brand new Stryd Power Monitors to test and I'm planning on using it through to the Boston Marathon next April. I want to see if measuring these new metrics results in any actionable data that will improve training.I've got a GPS watch - a Suunto Ambit 2s - and while I love it, I'm not convinced GPS training alone is that much use if you're serious…

The book is described as the complete guide to power meters for running.   Power meters have been used extensively in cycling for a number of years and provide  key data used to improve training and racing performance.

Running - it's a Numbers game

Running is more than just putting one foot in front of the other*. We don’t often think of it, but it’s all a Numbers game. You don’t realise it but you are constantly Number crunching either in your mind or on the computer.   So you’re heading out for a run. It’s a Sunday morning† and you’re off to continue building mileage for your A-race (probably a half or full marathon). …

Buff Multi-Functional Headwear

The Buff is a very underrated and versatile piece of kit. Its lightweight, breathable and can be used in many ways; ideal for many activities. Its tube-like shape allows it to be placed on (or around) the head in numerous ways. I've used it during the recent cold weather around my neck as a neck scarf for extra warmth, which works well.  It can also cover the head & ears providing warmth without …
