Hell Yur!!

Part of my slightly renewed inspiration for running has been down to the kit I have acquired recently! I talked about shoes in Kicks: Training vs Running and included my new runners…the Nike Lunarglides 5’s.

I also got a cute (yet slightly irritating) running belt to carry my keys when I am out. I was on the hunt for one last year when participating in Run to the Beat half marathon, but couldn’t get my hands on one quick enough!

On my Summer Wishlist were a pair of Yurbuds headphones and the guys at Yurbuds were kind enough to send me over a pair to try out.

my baby blue yurbuds 😉

Yurbuds are designed for specifically for smaller ears with technology to guarantee that they never hurt or fall out! What’s mighty useful is that they are also sweat and water resistant!

When they arrived, I immediately unboxed them and stuck them in my ears. Disappointment fell over me as they didn’t even fit in my ears never mind stay in to not fall out. I then looked at the box and realised I had done it all wrong! You have to insert at an angle…then twist! BOOM!! And a hell YUR!! Felt snug as a bug, but the real test is when running huh?! 

got them in! yeah boi 😉

My next run was scheduled at the gym; a short little 3km easy run on the treadmill. I just joined a new gym, and when I arrived realised the music was more than ambient meaning I didn’t need music…or headphones! But I wore them anyway…just so I could hear my Nike+ feedback every 0.5km! …so far…so hell YUR!

Next run, outdoors! Another short one…I’m easing myself back in gently! I felt the cord was a little annoying but then that’s my fault for not using the cord management system on my running top! Bearing in mind I didn’t even realise I had a cord management system! I used that loop on the back of my top to just about hang up the darn thing to dry! Ha! …not like it came with instructions telling me what features it has!

Anyway, the headphones were a success! A huge success! And they put my crappy armband to shame! I bought this armband from a very cheap sports retailer last year for my first 10km run! It’s done me proud but it isn’t half fiddly!

about to head out…selfie 😉

If the headphones don’t fit you, you can send Yurbuds a picture of your lug hole and they will get a suitable size out to you (I’m not sure if they charge for this service). 

The Yurbuds headphones were a well overdue upgrade which I wish I’d had in time for the British 10km race last month! I spent a lot of time being irritated by my headphones falling out and even gave up wearing them by the end!

So here’s to a future of runs focused on running with great tunes and comfort! 

Do you run with Yurbuds?! …think you’ll consider them when it’s time to upgrade your headphones?!

      Exactly that! And it worked so well! …now just need to work out what the other holes and loops do 🙂 Couldn't agree more! Love it when my kit works for me 🙂 x

    I love my yurbuds, best buy for me, I'm glad I got them. You know what I never thought about using that little loop, learned something new too.

      …there are so many little loops and holes made to make running more comfortable on our gear! Just need to work out what they are all for 😉
