Gadgets I’m Using Right Now

Here are most of the gadgets I’ve been using for me over the last month or so. I’m not sure they are my ‘favourite’ ones per se but I’m using them ‘properly’ for meaningful training stuff rather than just trying to break them or seeing if the GPS is accurate or not. There is nothing…
