Zwift RunPod

Having used the Zwift (Milestone) Pod on numerous runs I am impressed with the detail it offers and its accuracy, considering how inaccurate FootPods and pedometers used to be. This Pod uses modern accelerometers to accurately calculate distance run, plus lots of other pieces of information which is mainly used to improve running form. There’s a lot of talk about running more efficiently to redu…

Altra Running Shoes

We decided to stock this American brand for their two main features: Foot Shaped 0 DropWe’re finding in-store there’s an increasing demand for wider toe-boxed shoes; more and more runners finding ‘pointy’ running shoes not fitting their feet well enough. While this hasn’t been a huge issue for the majority of runners, for some it has been. Also given the fact our feet swell as we run (we…

Ryan's Thames Path 100 mile 2017 race

I reckoned I was about 85% there with training towards Thames Path 100 miles. Runners are never certain if they’ve done sufficient training, or the right type for 100 miles. Get to the start line as fit and as healthy as possible. I managed both, if not for a niggle in the groin that had come on in the last month. At least it was the last part of training.I hadn’t done any training runs longer…

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…
