We've had a lovely 4 weeks in the U.K. catching up with family and friends, but yesterday we travelled back to Switzerland 🇨🇭 After all that time on the plane & trains I desperately needed some exercise this morning, the only problem being that it's pouring with rain and cold. Man up Mike. Had a nice run around the village - tourists looking at me as if I was nuts. Anyhow I have new gear - I've ditched the cumbersome rucksack that accompanied me all the way through C25K. Its replacement is one of those running vests. It has pockets at the front for keys, money, phone and water and another bigger pocket at the back for any other junk I might need to take. It's brilliant! If you need to carry lots of bits and pieces when you’re running I highly recommend something like this. Excuse the gruesome selfie 😂
All the gear, and (still) no idea! - Bridge to 10K
I have one of those, pocket at the back is for your hydration bladder.
Ah right. Are they really needed for running 10k's?
Definitely not, unless it is 35c outside. 20k + I'd say.
Looks very like my hydration vest, Mike. After a very hot and humid run last week, I will continue to take it with my walking hydration bladder in for my 10K runs, with just 500ml water. Light enough to barely notice, but much easier to just take sips when you need it than using the bottles on my running belt. (Though maybe that’s because my fused neck can’t be tipped backwards easily, so I have to stop to drink from bottles.)
You're back in the mountains! I'll look forward to all your pictures! 😃😃
You look da business.... how fab and lovely place to run too
I’ve got that too 👍🏽 You can get a couple of 250ml aonijie bottles on eBay for a couple of quid to go in the front pockets. Mine took a couple of weeks to arrive he though. I didn’t want a bladder.
Ah that sounds ideal. 500ml bottles will fit but it's heavy with 2 full ones and carrying 1 makes it a bit lop-sided. More new gear 😀👍
Hey great idea Mike! You look the business, a proper runner! 🏃♂️🏃♂️👍🏻👍🏻
Farewell Mike, but we do enjoy your beautiful pictures os runs in Switzerland 🇨🇭
Well done getting out despite the weather! 👍❤️
I love all the pockets in my hydration vest too! 😃❤️
Thanks for the quick runnng vest update and pic. It made up my mind to get one. I’d been putting one in and taking it out of the basket for a couple of weeks.
I got a slightly different one to you (it has a clear pocket for emergency info) but it is really comfortable. So thank you for making up my mind. (My husband often reminds me to breathe out when making decisions😄.)
