More TCA Gear - their Galaxy T's and long sleeve tops are great quality for under 15 quid (no rural backhander). Nike running shorts 13 quid (down from £24) at the outlet down here; holla at me for pickups, might get down there tomorrow.

Can anyone recommend a decent running shoe that provides good stability for Overpronators? Pref from Nike, Adidas or Asics?

Probably best to speak to someone like Sweatshop about specialist insoles.

I just got a pair of these from Runners Need. 50% off if you are a Vitality member.

You can filter on those brands' sites by suitability for overpronation, i.e.:

Adidas
Asics
Nike

A friend has created a running backpack for those that use such a thing https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/holizm-the-innovative-backpack-made-for-movement/

Doing the Hackney Half this Sunday and thinking of getting an armband for my phone. I always run holding it and the wire for my headphones but I've only ever run 16km tops and I got annoyed holding it/a sweaty hand.

Does anyone recommend a good armband? Are they actually comfortable? Or just get some Airpods and keep holding the phone.

I've seen Gyakusou in there a coupla times but it's always been the proper 'out there' designs that they come up with every so often - never seen any sneaks though. If I ever see any gear in the future I'll take some smudges and bang it up on here, edlo.

I got a band off Amazon that wraps around your waist. Its so much better than the armband I think.

Looks shite over the t-shirt but I always just wear my tee over the top of it

Yeah, waistband is the way to go, Conductor. Camelbak is a good option too especially if you're gonna do longer runs in the Summer - hydration and space for phone, cash, jelly beans (run essential Eye-wink ).

I did away with a waist band and copped these satisfy shorts https://satisfyrunning.com/products/long-distance-3-shorts

Not cheap (even bought at sale price as I did ) but they are great for distance running with enough pockets for 2 gels , phone, & keys.

Good luck with the hackney half conductor. I’ve just had to withdraw through injury (bloody shin splints )

Get a pair of 2 in 1 shorts with a pocket for your phone in the liner. I've a pair of Brooks 2-in-1 sherpa shorts and they're the best thing I've bought for running.

Ditch the phone and get a GPS watch with on-board memory + Bluetooth headphones. So much better running without a phone.

Pace, distance etc. won't be visible if your phone's in your pocket or strapped to your arm. Do you have to run with your phone in front of you?

Curious why people don't spend a few quid on a watch instead.

Runtastic app tells you your pace/distance etc every half mile or half km if you want it to. Don't need to look at anything then.
