Alternatively, I find size XL Craft tights normally fit me fairly well (6'3" and 32" waist). I'm lucky enough to work near one of the UK suppliers (Ultrasport) and can try them on. I'd avoid anything with stirrups as although they stop them riding up I find they also pull them down!
As Cougie says though it's rare to wear tights - usually only when it's high hills and appalling weather or when running through deep hard crusted snow to avoid getting lacerations around the calves!
I have Forerunner 10. I find the connection is much faster if I place the watch on a surface while it connects - on the wall outside my house or on the car roof. It's always connected by the time I've tied my laces...
Help! I was diagnosed with UC last year and was being treated with asacol and azathioprine. The last month or so has been terrible, especially while running. I've had several appointments with my consultant and specialist nurse but am starting to feel like I'm running out of options. The idea of surgery is massively worrying.
Any positive thoughts would be really encouraging right now!
Peter - as far as I'm aware the seizures themselves are not fatal but falling into traffic, being in water etc can obviously cause problems. I have started running with a mobile phone and only run with others when out on the fells - the people I'm running with are fully aware of my condition and what to do if I have a seizure. I do run on my own but stick to low level paths, close to roads and popular with dog walkers etc. I also take massive pains to let my wife know exactly where I am going and how long I will be - if I'm out for long I'll phone in to let her know how I'm getting on. I always run with a mobile phone, spare top, hat and gloves, food and a survival bag.
When I am next due an upgrade my plan is to get a smartphone with GPS enabled so that my wife can track my real time location using google latitude if she has a sudden 'worry'.
There are specific GPS trackers available but are very expensive: http://www.findmespot.eu/en/
As my consultant said, you need to live your life as normally as possible but have to employ common sense.
