Blackers have you sent your list to fetch? He's always asking for ideas...I never have any, so you could make up for my lack of gumption.

Gumption?

Is that a word?

suggests that it is: Guts, spunk {Scots} apparently?

Thanks BW.

Gumption was also some sort of toilet cleaner i think

My dad always calls Cif (formerly Jif) cream cleaner gumption. I think it is because it's rubbish compared to modern foamy spray grease dissolving things so you need to 'apply some gumption', i.e. work hard when you use it.

On the topic of running logs - am really missing having a list of favourite routes in Fetch. My old log let you pick a favourite and filled out the distance automatically, plus you could see your personal bests for each route.

Wasn't that a Squeze hit in the late 70's or early 80's? "Up the gumption"

katieb - I'm just getting into the FE site as you can see (hit 10 posts this morning - wey hey)

I'm also guessing that Fetch looks at this thread (as you suggested b4) as it was precisely 3 days after I said that categories would make the chat useable that they appeared!! Unless it was coincidence.

I'm betting that writing a Garmin/Timex/etc.. agent to upload lods may take a little longer

A week at least....!!

Rather usefully, my dad just came round and informs me that gumption really was a cleaning product back in the 1950s. He thinks the cleaner gave us the word, sort of like Hoovers and how we now say hoovering instead of vacuuming.

So, my next question is....was the cleaning product named because of the word Gumption..or was it the other way round?

I expect he does read this thread Blackers. :-)


Hi Fetch. :-)

Ey up ;-)

Tons of improvements going live in the near future... all requests duly noted.

I'd better shut up now, before I get accused of promoting:

I don't think anyone would accuse you of that, MrE.

I have kept a training log for the last 5 years which was when I started Half Ironman Training.

Last year I ran my own log and used Fetch just in case it did not last. This year I am logging almost exclusively in Fetch.

That's quite an endorsement, Gobi.
