A couple of weeks ago, I showed you a picture of a new drinks belt for running that I had made.
Well I tried it out on an 18km run and found it still bounced around a bit too much - not so comfortable! So it was back to the drawing board! ( I refuse to pay $45 for something that I'm convinced I can make myself!)
So I've gone as simple as possible - with just a thick elastic belt with little loops on to hold the bottles and velcro to fasten it!
I tested it out last weekend on a short run with my daughter, and found the weight of the full bottles pulled it down a bit much, but otherwise it seemed ok.
So I've now added a couple more belt loops on my shorts to stop the belt sagging!
(This is when my husband called me a mad scientist - testing, retesting and adding bits here and there!!)
So - I think I've finally cracked it.
Today I'm off up this mountain (The Pyramid) for a training run and another test of my belt!
Hopefully it will finally be perfect!
Wishing everyone a happy weekend!
