Garmin 405 for sale it's only 6 months old, I sent my broke old one back to Garmin and they sent me a new one back

The only reason why have I changed it is because I am struggling to read the data on it, the old bulbs are going.

GBM/UB- Thanks for the run earlier, It's great to be back on the MWW

BB-got your texts, on holiday at the moment (at Champneys Spa for a week- it's hard work but someone has to do it). Good luck for GNR but i don't think you need it, you're running very well, i think pound for pound, you must be the best runner on the thread.
J8-welcome to my world

NI - Management capacity!

Does that mean you are calling it a day? Has 500 miles a month finally caught up with you?

JMC - yes I'm hanging up my racing flats. What do you think?

Well done all involved with the Stockport 10. Sounds like a resounding success

I'm planning a trip to the first running of Congleton Parkrun on Saturday. 3 apparently flat and fast laps around a lake if anyone wants a lift to give it a go.

Track session tonight 25 laps fast/slow if anyone fancies it.

Meeting UB Saturday morning Rose Hill 8am 17 miles nothing mad.

13/12/2012 at 12:47

NI, is the Trafford 10k open for entries?  I can't see it listed anywhere. 

13/12/2012 at 14:18

SW- I see that in this week's Athletics Weekly (aside from having Jessica Coulson across the front page), they have you down in the results for 2nd V40. They are very efficient the Stockport lot!

13/12/2012 at 14:35

Eric- The latest event rating. 'Would you do it again?' Answer- 'No' followed by the comment- 'this was the third time I have done this race and will definately do it again'

Also, Hamstring Lee can't spell marvellous.

I really should get out for a run and stop reading about it!

I was relieved to read SW's S10 comments in RW about the goody bag. Since we have loads of bird food including meal worms lying about, I thought I had accidentally put some meal worms in my goody bag. The truth of their origin cleared up that mystery! So SW, next year I'll swap my chocolate for your meal worms.....

13/12/2012 at 16:24
BHB - Trafford isn't open for entry yet but it's definitely on that date according to my source at Alty AC.
13/12/2012 at 17:19

Morticia - I spotted that, pity we can't get it changed.  It's knocked the percentage points down 3 just with that one answer.

Well that proves I'm not HL as I don't make mistakes like that!

13/12/2012 at 17:29

Eric- Bit weird as well to give a '40%' answer regarding the race entry fee question when you get chip timing and a marvelous (joke!) tech top! Maybe this person only does fell races and isn't used to normal race entry fees?!

Anyway, get Jayne Lawton to start planting up something suitable for December display round the route and that will further improve the scores next year 

13/12/2012 at 21:12
Mort- she could just stand on the route. That would improve the scenery.
13/12/2012 at 22:23
Jonah - couldn't keep up with that, too lightweight. You are looking quick though. Need to get your head round Heartbreak Hill now.
13/12/2012 at 22:56

Poacher - I'm hoping New Zealand Road training might help me to .

13/12/2012 at 23:01

Plod- Ok well maybe GBM could print off some lifesize JL pics for the mile markers or something?

In fact, maybe auditions could be held for several hundred good-looking men as well as women to provide support round the course to make it more attractive?

I am full of great ideas

13/12/2012 at 23:08

According to the RW US forum thread Heartbreak Hill is 0.4 miles long and has a rise of about 80 feet. New Zealand Road is half a mile and has an overall 90ft of climb. I think the difference is that Heartbreak Hill occurs just after 20 miles, right where you don't really want to be slogging up such a hill. 

J8 looked very fresh this evening. Almost a man possessed .

Heartbreak ain't that big but it is the 4th and last of a sequence of hills and it preys on the mind, especially when the temperature has topped 90. However NZ Rd is probably a pretty good place to prepare.
