Come one, come all; everyone welcome on this year long build up to the GNR
Yes I did you lazy bugger
Old Shadowfax - are you doing Andy Reading 10K tomorrow? I can't find a race number, did they send them out?
RLTW- No I'm not. I've got to go into work. Last year they sent out the numbers and you picked up the chip on the day. Have a good run tomorrow. My OH and son are doing the Santa run in Oxford
Did the 8 miles I had promised myself this morning and managed it at MP pace (8:45) so really happy.
Nice going Bearsted. I've had a 6 mile walk and will do some rowing later I think.
That sounds good - I need to get back into the walking I really enjoy it - but find my running gets in way.
Just noticed that Garmin have brought out a new GPS watch specially for hiking and trailing - battery life in use 16-50hrs - also got temp/barometer on it together with a return to home plotter so dont get lost. will make good long day walks more enjoyable when can track what done and pace etc
Don't all Garmins have the 'back to start' function? My 310 certainly does, and I'm fairly sure the 205 has it too.
I've also been doing some marathon pace miles today, at the Turkey Trot Half Marathon. It's very hilly and it was pretty windy today, so I wasn't sure I'd manage MP for so many miles when I'm not actually in marathon training, so I was fairly pleased with 1.29.02.
CC2- my 305 has a back to start function, though I've never used it and therefore I guess the 205 does too as its the same unit without the HR function. Good time on your half mara!!
ROFL at Stringy's photo!!
Great time CC2.
Didn't do todays Stockport 10 but went to cheer Steve on who beat last years time by 2 mins or so - 1hr 18mins which he's very pleased about considering all he's done since the GNR is run to and from work once and completed Hellrunner in early Nov!!
Wow! Good going Steve! Well done for supporting in the cold Mandie
I use my Garmin to geocache so I have used the back to start function, but a 16hr battery would be awesome as mine gets tetchy after 5 and usually doesn't make it through a full marathon
Well done CC2 for the Turkey Trot!
Bearsted - I do a lot of walking and walk-running on the Trans Pennine Trail so I go with whatever mood takes me
Bearsted - I'm lucky in both of the areas I live in as I have the Clent Hills when I am at my mom's. Is there nowhere near to you that's as good?
What...no posts for nearly 48 hours Has everyone gone Christmas shopping or something?
It was very slippy out this morning. I managed 0.1 miles and turned round and went home and back to bed for another hour.
I'm here, loitering as usual....
mr sj, yes, I'm surprised the grand prix wasn't called off. The pavements outside my house in Gosforth are already quite slippery with frost and ice and I can't believe it's much different at the coast. Can't afford another fall so have decided not to risk it this evening. I'll be interested to know how it went.
Young OS's school carol service was an excellent excuse not to run this evening. Its only just below freezing but the humidity is so high it feels colder.
