Today’s run (treadmill): 30 minutes
It’s been a long time since I’ve done a post on Runner’s Tech Review but that will soon change. This morning I received a product called the RooSport, a pocket that attaches magnetically to running shorts or pants. The idea is similar to the SPIbelt but the RooSport does not attach around your waist while you run.
I’ve been a fan of the SPIbelt for years and I use it every time I run. I’m curious to see how the RooSport feels compared to the SPIbelt, especially when loaded up with a smartphone and other small items. I’m also wondering how comfortable I’ll be wearing the RoosSport on the inside of my shorts. This is the method recommended and demonstrated by Brenda Brundage, who created the product.
We’ve had a lot of rain over the last two days and that kept me inside for today’s run. I considered wearing it on the treadmill, but I wanted my first experience with the RooSport to happen on an outdoor run. I ran for about 30 minutes this morning, fast enough to get my heart rate to the edge of the anaerobic zone. If the weather cooperates tomorrow, I’ll use the RoosSport outside on my run. I’ll share that experience and will post the full review in a few weeks on Runner’s Tech Review.
