Want to buy a good running hat + gloves for running in Scotland (colder than I'm used to in the South!) for my daughter. Looking at either the Nike range or Ronhill do one with a pink (therefore girly) trim. Any ladies got suggestions for good ones that are comfy and warm? I just use whatever comes to hand!!
Am doing my 4th half marathon in edinburgh at end of April. Usually have my training worked out well but this time I'll be in Australia for a month from late feb to late march so will have just 4 wks when I get back to do my longer runs.
Really not good running in the heat and the most I'm expecting to do in oz is 5/6 miles. Is it worth doing some longer runs before I go in Feb (can't really see this will help so far in advance) or just do regular 5/6 miles over there and pump out the miles when I get back?
I'm a 'senior' so not looking for pb's just enjoy the race and get to the end without walking!!
How about a vest top with a lightweight long sleeved one over the top? You can take this off and tie round your waist when you warm up - I did this on a warm half marathon on Sunday and it was fine, not at all cumbersome. Edinburgh tends to be a bit windy and chilly! Good luck
