Which Heart Rate Monitor/GPS

Posted: Today at 07:41

I use the 220 in exactly the situation you describe, and it would also do as a watch for the OP. mine will synch to ios devices via bluetooth and the Garmin app, so I assume android will work as well. There is a setting in Connect to push almost instantly to Strava.

Hoka Clifton equivalent for wider foot

Another approach is to go to and use their search tool set to a wide fitting. But I'm a bit concerned about this approach. Don't assume you need a wider shoe without trying some on. I'd hesitate with Altra because they're zero drop and would require a period of adaptation. Secondly, I'd wuestion the assumption that you simply switch shoes because of knee pain. You need to understand why this pain is arising and then act appropriately, eg strengthening exercises. Don't just assume shoes can fix things.

I can also add Montane, one type that has one zipper, another with two, Casall HIT that has zips on both sides. Not hard to find, really.

Shorts with zipped side pockets

Here's some more of my favorites:

In general I think you need to look at trail or ultra-running shorts, and relax your zip requirements a bit, since many pockets are tight or elastic enough that things don't bounce out, and many have at least one zip pocket intended for key, credit- or hotel-card.

Thick Running Socks

I like the Thorlos that are padded with a thicker grey material round the ball and heel, but thin white elsewhere. Another approach is Drymax, which are thick stretchy everywhere, not fluffy type.

I've got a few at home which I can look up but I just saw a pair of 2XU ultra shorts with zips in Trail Running magazine.

1337/3243 km completed = 1906 left. On 18th May, 1906, Edvard Grieg, a Norwegian composer, conducted a London concert. He was reported as being a bit physically weedy. Maybe he should have tried the sport of pedestrianism a little

Separation of stomach muscles

Try googling Diastasis Recti Running and then ask your practitioner's opinion on any intersting experiences. For example, this site says step class, zuma and spinning would be OK. Above all, I wouldn't give any website or recommendation from this forum precedence over live, personal and qualified medical advice, however frustrating that might feel.
