I need to do more of this with Spine Challenger training high on the agenda as well as #UGB200 #RaceAcrossScotland next year, that's 108 and 212 miles respectively of real trails!
Inov-8 Race Ultra 290's - brief review
Tested out my new Inov-8 Race Ultra 290's, on some bog, trail and road - a good mixed terrain run, the new shoes seem to fit well with a good size toe box. The grip is not a 'fell' shoe but adequate for such a mixed terrain run with enough cushion for a good few miles on the road later on, not as much as the Trail Talon 275's but still a good buy. This version of the 290's seem to have better protection around the sides of the front foot for wear and tear- so I am initially hopeful they will not wear here quickly or tear.
I wanted to give my ankle a tester after last weeks trail marathon, it went well. I used an ankle support but my ankle felt better and stronger as the run went on.
Running should just be about getting out and enjoying it.
