I really hate, hate, hate ankle zips on tights, yet they seem to be well on their way to world domination. I'm struggling to find any new tights that aren't compression tights that don't have them. Anyone know of any? Thanks!
I got one of those little gel flasks and emptied about three gels into it and then just took a sip whenever I felt like it. Small enough to stow in a pocket. Prefer jelly beans but find all that sugar makes my teeth really sensitive!
Thank you everyone! Terrific advice. Found some info on Hong Kong at least, and looks like there is a 15 mile trail I can run. Getting up early is a bit hard as often concert start times are much later in other countries (in Turkey we started at 10pm.... ) but I'll do my best!!!
Hi, I'm doing Brathay Windemere marathon in May which will be my second marathon. Training is going well so far, but looking ahead in the diary I have two tours scheduled (I'm a musician) and am worried about training while away. The first one should be fine as the schedule doesn't look too heavy and the long run will happen in the canaries (perfect!), but Early April I'm working in Hong Kong, China and Korea for 12 days and should be doing two long runs in that time, at least one of which will be around the 20 mile mark.
Don't get me wrong - I like exploring new places by running, but going out for twenty miles in a place that I don't know the language or terrain etc. has got my knickers in a twist! Not to mention not knowing my work schedule there yet. Has anyone had to do their long runs somewhere really unfamiliar and do you have any tips for finding routes etc. in different countries?
