Running Backpack recommendations

Posted: 26/05/2016 at 23:08
I have a camelbak ultra 10 which is not a cheap backpack but it fits me well and has lots of space to carry stuff. It has a cord so you can compress your stuff if the bag is not entirely full. It also has a waterproof pocket at the front in which I can put my phone but it is not big enough if you have a big phone ( anything over the size of an iphone5s would be a challenge to fit in,imo).

Making the change from road running to trail running

Take a phone in a ziplock bag with you if you are running alone in case you get into Trouble. Maybe also have a look if there is an app which lets you contact emergency services without phone reception. There is one available in Australia as it can be dangerous to go in the bush, but I'm not sure if there is one for England.

Old shoes work fine... new shoes are killing me

Thanks for the explanation Shades. Will give it a go. Avoiding injury sounds good

Hi Shades, may I ask why you think it's important not to run in the same make/ model all the time? I have run in brooks glycerine for a few years now but also tried different makes. I have recently purchased adidas trail shoes and also got a pair of hoka's and On (clouds) shoes but I always go back to the brooks as my feet don't like the other shoes for long distances.

I would recommend the red ones as obviously they are the fastest!

Sorry can't give any helpful advise. Hope you can find a nice pair.

Brooks Glycerin 13 blister - please help!

I have worn brooks glycerin for a few years now and never got blisters on top of my toes. I wear thorlos socks and sometimes injinji socks. In regards to the blister you got. Put a "proper" blister plaster on it which will stay in place and protect the affected area. Hope it will get better soon!

Sorry I have never tried the launch shoes so can't comment. Best bet for you I think would be to go to the dealer and try them all

Where abouts do you live? I used to buy them from a shop in Salisbury but it probably is no help to you.
