So what haven't they invented yet?

That could help with our running?

Without trying to sound like an old hippy in broken Dunlops, I did start running before we 'needed' stuff to aid with putting one food infront of the other more quickly than walking.

No music, no gels, no compression clothing (I think you get my drift).

However, people have been really inventive around our sport and we now have lots of help to keep us moving forward.

BUT, what has yet to be invented and marketed in terms of running?

How can clothing and shoes be improved? What about the 'got to have' accessories and 'nutrition' products?

Shoot!

(Well no don't; just give me your opinions).

What I notice is, the nearer to the front end of a race you get, the less gimmicks the runners seem to have.
Personally I don't think I could do with any more gadgets etc. To get faster I need to train more.

But are you going to train more in compression clothing and take ice baths afterwards?

Probably not. Have experimented with both and not really seen a noticeable difference.

This is where we differ. Put my beer on ice for sure...

Slightly off topic, but relevant, I have found that the little bag I got my christmas-present event clips in is perfect for keeping all my safety pins in one place ready for raceday.

Lol, I see what you did there.

I find if amusing that you now pay more money for less shoe

I saw a pair of Adidas Springblades in the shops. Seriously, I'd be embarrassed to turn up to event wearing those. For a start, if you didnt win the race, you'd look a plonker.

Rocket boots.

I'm waiting for the scientists to be able to translate the posting of complete bollocks on these fora into the same physical benefits I'd achieve from going outside and running

I'm still waiting for power laces and the self drying jacket from back to the future, though I will settle for some superted rocket boots

Victory of marketing. Make something you might want, and soon enough it becomes something you need.

In regards of the Marathon, excluding Mo this year, it's strange that with all of the new technology and knowledge we have the times of British male runners are nowhere near where they were 25 years ago.

Running clothes that never smell. Won't make me run any faster but will make my house smell better!

Catalin bond. Those exist Already. You just need to wash them every so often.

They could invent a timing chip that checks your progress more often than at VLM so cheating would be harder.

Shoes that maintain that lovely smell they have when new.
