Q&A with #RSP – What is in your go to running bag?

Turning up to an event and discovering that you have forgotten something small but important (like toilet paper) or your favourite pair of socks can ruin your day.

A good way to avoid any last minute surprises is to be a little organised and lay out your gear at least 2 days in advance of a big event, you know, the one you trained for all year. Don’t leave it til the night before to run around grabbing gear. You will fill a bag with stuff you don’t need and likely forget the stuff you do!!


So to the question…

Question – What basics should be in all our running bags as standard.

My thoughts on this are fail to prepare, prepare to fail:

Another good question that makes me think!

Assuming that this is in preparation for an event this is the stuff I would be recommending otherwise the drawer under the bed should be exclusively for all your running gear!!

For everyone: Toilet paper(!!), Bodyglide / Skin Balm / Run Guard, good shorts with flat seams, tried and tested running socks, your #RSP top/ singlet πŸ˜‰ , safety pins; hat, hoody, tracksuit (for before & afterwards), babywipes, shades (weather dependent but have them in the bag) black bin bag (great temp rain jacket, shelter and portaloo πŸ˜‰ )

For girls: Decent bra, hair bands / scrunchie

For guys: Nipguards!! #RSP#AskAKW

Now we got a few extra suggestions in the comments which was great. Things like nutrition, recovery wear etc. I would expect to see in your bag as normal. It is the everyday stuff like the pins or glide or bin bag that are so easily overlooked and forgotten.

Stuff like fake tan and makeup…….well, I’ll leave that up to you!! πŸ˜€
