Really that's a surprise, I always think my fr 245 looks way off, I don't have a chest strap to compair though, maybe I am usually on the verge of dying Laughing out loud

Lightweight / thinned out due to wear - shorts are mandatory

I like these, tights/leggings without shorts isn't ideal and uncomfortable with:


anything similar to these available anywhere? these are Phenom Elite Trail but OOS everywhere (M/L) small on eBay

these are back in stock on Nike, and in the sale, use NIKE2021 for another 15% off and 5.5% Quidco

‘these pants would have been perfect if it wasn’t for a design flaw that made them unwearable’

Anyone wear Soar gear, Is it worth the quids? I like the look of a few bits but I could do with the elite Windbreaker.
Do they ever do any kind of discount?

if you ordered a large and are going to back them can you pm me,

mine arrived, while difficult to put on they are not horrendous, easier barefoot, and taking off is harder than putting on,

Lovely job Cool Did you set out to run that, or it felt good so just kept going?

So much good work on FUKRun group, 400+ miles logged so far this year and leaderboard 1st place this week with just shy of 60 miles, great start to the year.

That’s quite a jump. Impressive! Toe rubbing to the point of bleeding sounds fairly grim. Laughing out loud How are you feeling now? You planning on sticking with high mileage or dropping it down?

Up until the last few weeks the most I’ve done was 25km. I did 30km (with a 4km w/u) the weekend past and I actually reckon I could have run further - although probably wouldn’t wanted to push to 42km. I’ll get to 42km this year though. For sure.
