Buff; extra high UV protection. Keeps the sun off my (almost bald) head in summer, keeps it just warm enough in winter.

HRM: For keeping me focused and giving me reason to continue exercising in the early days.

Sweat Wicking sportswear: because the rubbing of damp cotton and the random places sweat patches like to show is no longer an issue if I wear the stuff!

Barefoot style footwear: nothing before then had dealt with the recurrant stress fractures I had been getting (diagnosed SF rather then any hyperchondriasm! Pain begain 3 years prior and never really went away, got to points where I was limping just to walk on waking, waiting for it to pass, started barefoot running and it never returned despite the same steps, minus the barefoot style, had been repeated several times before!)

Sports bra: Not going to bother explaining that one!

Wirefree MP3 player: just a must for anyone who has poor arm coordination!

Things I want to try still are compression sportswear (fed up with DOMs every time I attempt any sort of resistance work), Vibrams! (still preparing myself), having regular sports massages (like every week or so, have the occasional student sports massage but its not at all as frequent).
