Thank you for posting on the SORE League.
As you are struggling along in the intense heat on your runs just think to yourself how much quicker you will be when the fresher cooler weather comes along! So, chin up, it is worth the slog, the sweat, the soggy clothes and wet hair because, just like hills, the heat can make you a stronger runner! :sweat: :sunny: :runner:
Here are just a few websites that you may not know about – mainly for longer distance running and navigation:
Gpsies.com – invaluable if you are having problems uploading a gpx file to your watch or phone. This site will convert almost any format to Garmin gpx or similar.
Dcrainmaker.com – you may already know this one, but if you want an in-depth review on anything related to watches and gadgets to do with running and cycling then this is the site to visit.
Overstims.com – this is a company in France but they have a very good liquid antioxidant gel which contains magnesium. It comes in a small tube which is easy to store and does not get sticky. They do gluten-free and organic products as well.
Myracekit.com – aimed at longer distance running but a good variety of running equipment.
Likeys.com – another trail and long distance running site with a good selection of running gear.

I ran a long, lonely, thirsty 18 miles to ashwell and back on Monday. Glorious sunny running in the lanes with a few push ups thrown in diving out of the way of cars during the morning country lane rush. Keeps you on your toes y’know.
