Nathan Speedster 2L Review: As more people take to the trails, demand has grown for products that allow you to carry a few essentials without stuffing your pockets or necessarily needing a larger backpack, which is likely to be overkill unless you’re going out running for many hours somewhere remote.
It's true, friction training does sound like something out of a sci-fi movie but it's also a method of training that can help build up muscle strength by using a variety of low impact yet high-intensity exercise routines. In the video above, I demonstrate some of the exercises routines that I enjoy practising with the Flowin Pro friction trainer.
Join us as we go running in Yosemite National Park, what a perfect way to spend Earth Day. We take the 4-mile loop trail up to Union Point which gave us a fantastic view of Half Dome, El Capitan and the Yosemite Valley

In 2015 we both ran our second marathon; it happened to be the extremely beautiful yet very challenging Trail Marathon Wales sponsored by Salomon. We chose this race because we had heard so much about how beautiful the course was. We hadn't visited Snowdonia before, and we hadn't run a Marathon in the UK before. It just made sense 🙂
The Bath two tunnels races are run by Relish Running, whose races I have been enjoying throughout the summer (The Cheddar Gorge half and Bath hilly half marathon being two of them), so I knew this would be a fun event.
The Cheddar Gorge events, in particular the half and full marathons, are billed as some of the toughest of their kind in the UK, and are hosted in the spectacular setting of the huge gorge and National Trust land.
