You may just wizz past me one day running around Leigh, I'm saying wizz past me as I'm sure you would.Prec said:Just got in from my first warm weather run of the year and it was testing to say the least:d Anyway lets hope its here to stay for a while, and i look forward to some more tough runs
P.S. Note to self "take a drink next time"
In the JJB near sainsburys they have some great water bottles for running, they are shaped to fit in your hand, think they are only a couple of pound to buy.dimple said:You may just wizz past me one day running around Leigh, I'm saying wizz past me as I'm sure you would.
My tough run is up Princess Avenue in Tyldesley, nearly got to the top last week but started laughing right near the end as we must have looked a sight.
How do you carry your water I'm looking for ideas?
Quite agree with you steepler, I have really struggled today on my two runs, but I was never in need if any fluid. If you drink sensibly during the day, there is really no need for any additional top upssteepler said:You don't need a drink if you are running for less than an hour really!
Opinions vary in the extreme on this subject. I've come to think that there's a strong psychological element involved, with many people being influenced or even scared into believing all the hype we're constantly fed with regard to the "gallons" ( ) of fluid which we're supposed to down each day.calton1954 said:How long do folk feel their runs get before needing to take water with you ? I've only been running for just over 2 years and not done any races over 10k, which I don't need water during. Got up to 10 miles max so far in training (relaxed runs), and have usually taken a small bottle of water on those.
I never take water with me on a run but now it's hot i always have a drink after i run...pedestrian said:

I ran a 10km last night and was gasping for a drink by halfway! By the time I hit the 7km, I really had to slow down, because the heat was getting to me.steepler said:You don't need a drink if you are running for less than an hour really!
