Bugger. Half a mile into an evening run and my calf muscle had a moment. Walked back. Has been tight for a while. Very cold and it overstretched, Nothing too serious but needs resting. For the time being I'm with JH on the crocked cart.
There's the Nathan Zephyr Fire torches, designed for running. I recently bought the 300 (brighter version) and would recommend it. It straps onto the hand and the light is angled down. You can't avoid the beam bouncing some as you move, but I found it settled the more I got used to running with it. The light coverage is great, it's got a flashing red light on the rear (although annoying this can't be turned on or off independently), and an alarm button. Not cheap (up to ??50) but worth looking at.
X-socks and Skins are both good premium brands and would make a nice gift for a keen runner. All brands mentioned will do the trick if you know the size you need. It's then a matter of price and aesthetics.
Many parish notices to cover. Happy belated birthday DD, and get well soon to all the laid low gentleman - men get flu and colds worse than women as oestrogen helps to counteract viruses. Scientists say so. After the "50 Shades of Running" masochist adventures hope you're healed up Lilytoo. More great things Swittle with 2K reached. And everyone else doing fine things as ever.
10 Kate Bush reps at the windmill. The resident cat wasn't about. 53mins for 7miles. Cold out.
