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… 82

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… 151

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… 349

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

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 … 958

Having used the TomTom watch
for a couple of weeks now, I've enjoyed the watch's functionality, but also its
ease of use. It's been shared with my wife who runs as well, but does gym classes
more often a week. She too has particularly enjoyed its ease of use.
Having used other GPS manufacturers
in the past she often struggled with their, at times, complex use - top right
