Taking The Camel For A Run

A friend lent me his Camelbak which I tried out last night. Went for a 2 hour run heading North out of Bristol for about an hour. Not used to wearing anything extra, I don’t think I got to the point where I didn’t notice it. It takes a 100 oz of liquid plus all the other bits and pieces I took probably gave an overall weight close to 7 pounds. I also took 500ml of sports drink. It wasn’t that warm last night, I had leggings and my windbreaker on so I didn’t drink that much. However on longer runs this will be really useful.

It’s been a quiet week. Have been engrossed in web projects and haven’t run since Sunday. Four days off is a long break and now I’m getting back in the sadle for some more miles.
