Winter Run LS Hoodie Reviewby Robert Mann / Dec. 29, 2022
Part of being an ASICS FrontRunner means that I get sent kit at different points of the year (wahoo!). These kit drops tend to be seasonal, with the latest instalment being geared towards winter. In my opinion, the standout piece of kit in this instalment has been the ASICS Winter Run LS Hoodie. The aim of this review is to make you as excited/mad about this piece of kit as I am in the header image!

The purpose of this blog is to provide a day-by-day account of the Coast Ultra Xtreme – a multi-stage ultra-marathon (80 miles) along the South-West Coast Path, between Trevose Head Lighthouse and Land’s End. I hope to be able to convince you, the reader, to consider adding this event (or something similar) to your 2021 race list!

Session rating of perceived exertion (sRPE) is a simple and time efficient way to monitor your internal training load. In this blog, I introduce the concept of sRPE and encourage you to start using it on a daily basis.
