Things to Think about

Here are some links to a few articles I have come across lately. Just an idea if any of you are really bored and fancied a few quick reads.

Some great tips here on gear for the longer adventure races. I recently fixed my own garmin forerunner watch so will stick to that until I’m rich and can afford a really decent one!

This link is another one of those barefoot running links. I reckon as I have mentioned in the past that it really does help to vary your footwear. In particular trying out some minimalist shoes for shorter runs. There is no doubt it has helped my posture in recent years and my stride and cadence has improved. It also helps the life of your runners to switch daily between different types.

This drone footage is of the Lower River Clare that flows into Lough Corrib. It is an area I cover for work but at the moment has re connected to the Lake during floods. There is an area just to the right hand side of this video where I have gone for runs in the past. It is now completely submerged.
