had this exact thought process about a year ago. absolutely despise phone armbands, find them so distracting.

so for when I fancy a few songs while solo training I sling one of these around my waist with my iPhone inside, and use wireless headphones.

https://www.sportsshoes.com/product/ino1105/inov8-all-terrain-running-belt-%7E-aw18/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMInf_BocCS3AIV6p3tCh2zsAmaEAQYAyABEgI83fD_BwE&gclsrc;=aw.ds

was worried it would bounce while I ran, but it's so light honestly barely notice it's there. and I'm off round the hills usually so I having the phone is good, lest I fall and don't get back up.

Really appreciate the suggestion, Blofeld but that ain't for me unfortunately - spent years slowly trynna find the right gear and for me it's all about being as minimalistic as possible, hence the shuffle which is tiny.

As an aside, I've been nabbing some of the Nike Running Division gear in the Nike sale. Great clothing for this weather.

How about an Apple Watch and Bluetooth headphones?
Can track distance and heart rate as well and very minimal.

Anyone use wireless earbuds while running? Considering getting a pair of Jaybird Runs, but was wondering if anyone on here would have anything they would recommend?

Have pretty much tried all the usual suspects in the wireless earbuds segment and in my opinion, the ones by Sony are by far the best sounding by a mile, don't fall out either and have active noise cancelling (which you can turn off for safety whilst out running).

Went out three times last week, only 4 or 5k each time, trying to build fitness back up before the football season starts again.

I'm also cycling to work and back Monday - Friday (20 mile round trip), will a 5k run each night after the ride be overdoing it?

Oh and why do I prefer miles when cycling and km when running?

I have the Jaybird X3 but the fins annoy me. Much prefer Powerbeats with the hooks for running.

Is anyone running outdoors? Even at 9pm it's too fucking hot.
