I have to be very nice about him in case he comes across this article some day 🙂 .
My father is law is active sports guy .He runs in marathon in Pune and comes number 1 -3, Unlike us who have been planning to run marathon for years, Several whatsapp group were created and fizzled out .He wakes up every morning at 5 and goes to PYC gym.He is currently preparing for Syracuse ironman on june 18 2017
Recently they were visiting here and we did shop . Some of things he mentioned are not readily available in India, If they are, they are not that great quality .Most of them are sport related
Here is the list
Cycling Pants and Shirts
He is preparing for triathlon. He did not get good pants and shirts that professionals use for cycling . You know most of us wear loose t-shirts and pants for cycling, Thats no good , Too much resistance , You need tight clothing .
which measures running miles , swim laps and cycling runs ,After spending quite some time researching for it , We bought this Garmin Vivoactive HR . We have too many fight over which one we should buy .
Good Running Shoes
We actually went to roadrunnerstore , Its Pretty cool how they measure everything and give you custom shoes and soles . He really loved it .
Here is what I learned that day
I was so impressed that even I went to get shoes for myself, I bought these Brooks , Working out very well for me
He wanted one little of bottle , Surprisingly finding 1 little of bottle was kind of difficult from hundreds of choices we had .Finally we settled with this camelbak. Apparently most of the stores do not sell 1L bottles ( kind of big size )
You do not want to drive cycles with bike lights specially in India . We got this bike light set , It has front light and back light as well
Bike Phone mount
There are several fancy bike mounts from bluetooth capability to having speakers , they have it all . We went with this simple ones for 13$
Car Cycle Mount
He badly wanted to buy bicycle mount for car but we could not find anything that only carries one cycle , So idea was dropped .
He also loved the these solar automatic lights that we got for our backyard
