Topics Covered (time in video in brackets):

  • I fell on Saturday and I've bruised my ribs. I can walk pain free but I did 10km run on Monday and hurt all the time. I can do some yoga and strength work without pain so will do that. Do you think I can run? (00:00)
  • Can you recommend a waterproof jacket? (3:00)
  • What are taped seams on a waterproof? (10:30)
  • Do you have any waterproof trouser recommendations? (13:15)
  • Do you have a head torch recommendation for roads and technical trails? (18:00)
  • What do you think of chest head torches? (28:00)
  • I have been testing Altra trail shoes (30:00)
  • What do you think of toe socks? (37:10)
  • What training should I do for a 50km trail race? (39:40)
  • I have an injury my psoas and it’s being treated under an NHS physio.  There is still discomfort in hip but it's only about L1-2. Is it better to do more frequent shorter runs say 2-4m say 5x a week or ok to do a couple of 10k and a longer one as I build back up? (44:50)
  • Do you have any Christmas gift recommendations? (47:45)
