Hello lovely people,
What an absolutely beautiful morning here in the east of england, I’m currently tapering for a HM on Sunday, after doing a trail 10 mile event last Sunday - don’t ask, it seemed like a good idea at the time....😱......anyway, after a rush of blood to the head earlier in the year, applying for the VLM, got the ‘sorry’ jacket yesterday.......so that’s the end of that - I’m secretly relieved.........i’d bought the above pictured vest thing for longer runs - getting serious this running malarkey! 😉 - I haven’t got a water bladder for it yet, but I’ve got two collapsible water bottles. That wasn’t the only reason for buying it, my lovely Zikee two bottle belt was having some, shall we say, unwanted influence on my stomach etc., 😩 on early morning long runs.......(that’s enough about that....😂..)
Did a 5k gentle run this morning, and thought I’d test the vest......it was great, good snug fit, got a bit sweaty on my back, but wasn’t too uncomfortable, fitted everything I needed into it, a bit inspector gadget utility vest, 😂 but so far I like, and would recommend giving them a go, if you find belts annoying, uncomfortable etc.,
The run, by the way, was like a bag of rusty old spanners....clanking along, with the odd, ohh, ahh at the stiffness....😂......but I do feel better for it...
Happy running all!
