Karrimor Mens Running Tights

A nice comfortable pair of running tights, that will see me through the winter in comfort I hope!  I gave these a 4 belly rating, click for the full review.

Zoot Men’s Ultra Kalani 2.0 Shoe

This is my new pair of shoes, these were my choice after a thorough and informative session at Advance Performance in Peterborough, I have now had these just a few weeks, but they are a dream come true, so comfy, so light, and for the first time ever I am running with no knee pain!  I must admit I was not at first overly keen on the style, a fat man wearing these does come across as strange, but the comfort has now firmly over ridden my prejudice, and I am in love!

Polar RS400 Training Computer

I have this on a long-term loan from a friend of mine, which is a good job, as there is NO way I would have justified the purchase price!  Now I know this is called a “Training Computer” but the only thing I am really using it for is a heart rate monitor.  It interacts with the exercise equipment in my gym, allowing me to train in the desired training zones with no messing about on my part, the machine does it automatically, leaving my to concentrate on my TV programme and not think about the fact I am running!  I honestly think it was this alone that helped me hit my 30 minute target.  I Have used it once on a cycle ride, and actually, the info I got off it at the end was very useful, I wish my laptop had an IR port, as then I could link it and do all kinds of fancy things!  I will over time hopefully unleash more of the potential of this clever little watch!

Claud Butler Urban 200

I bought my bike 5ish years ago from an independent shop called Bikes & Bowls in Elgin, and I have loved it ever since!  I bought this mainly to cycle to and from work, which was about 7 miles each way at the time.  I chose a hybrid over a road bike as I like to take the slightly less well beaten track, and whilst I am not an off roader, I didn’t want the fragile wheels and tyres of a road bike.  I have since done many miles on it, and am now starting to use it more and more again.  Unfortunately my commute to work is now a 100 mile round trip, so I need the motor power for that!

Halfords 12 Function Cycle Computer

Tells me everything I need to know, current speed, max speed, average speed, time, distance, total distance … well 12 things that I can’t quite remember!  Has worked well for 5 years, seems fairly accurate, don’t know if they still sell it or not though!

I will add more as and when, so keep checking back!

See you in the gym!
