Minni - will defo check out the garmin as this is all that I hear about on these forums.

I was a bit sleepy when I set up the plan back in October as I entered all my previous PB's told it I wanted 3:56:00 and it set it at 4:06:00.

I really want 3:45:00 and do not think this is beyond me based on a solid pre-conditioning phase averaging about 20 miles per week. I have covered 151 miles in 25 runs, have a perfect rating for planned activity and distance and am at 83% of my planned pace average. This tells me that I either need to slow down or review my plan.

Carl garmins are fantastic, I feel naked with out mine, although I did loose my signal running through that tunnel at VLM this year!

Minni I turn 31 tomorrow.....I'm sat facing all my presents now.....it's killing me not to open them!

Garmin are great! but it is easy to become a slave to them. I like running without a watch at all sometimes..no pressure about pace/ distance. just running to enjoy.

resist temptation Sarah...presses look SO good wrapped up!

My new garmin is arriving today! Have always run with the Nike gps app on my iPhone but looking forward to having even more data to look at!

Happy Birthday for tomorrow Sarah! 31 sounds very young, I am 10 years older

Santa is bringing my shiney new Garmin 310xt, as long as I'm tucked up in bed and don't peep.  I've been good.

Happy birthday Sarah.  41 sounds young Koala, I'm 10 years older than that

Sarah - happy birthday for tomorrow. 31 was such a long Tim ago no that I am 43 but age is a relative thing and we are all as young as we feel.

Have being looking at the garmin on the web this morning and think that as I have been relatively good this year that it might not be too late to write to Santa and ask for one.

I guess for me at the moment a good watch is a key part to getting my pacing right so that I can get closer to my target race time. It is all in the preparation and pacing.

Smiley face.

Happy birthday for tomorrow Sarah!

Carl, my Garmin has been one of the best things I've ever bought. I have an old 205 but it still does me proud. It's held together with insulating tape after I took it apart so that I could 'fix' the speaker - needless to say it now operates on mute

310xt would be my next one, I'll buy yours off you when you need to upgrade Tenjiso

I'm hopeful the forum is going to go one better than asics right from the start by actually having 6.  

Looking forward to hearing who gets chosen, its a hard one this year.

Can it not be announced sooner since everyone is raring to go...?
20/12/2012 at 10:46
I agree with Minni (winky face)
20/12/2012 at 11:04

Are you this bad with all your christmas presents?!!




The pitches have all gone over to the 'panel', once they have made their decision and the winners are back with me I shall confer with KK and see where we go from there



You *might* get an early present

That's the names in a hat to be drawn down the pub on Christmas Eve.

Good heavens no, I am sure that they will be cogitating and deliberating each and every waking hour before throwing them all up in the air and catching the lucky six

Thanks everyone for your kind wishes. Can remember turning 30 last year and I felt so old, everything seemed to go wrong for about 2 months, thought that was it, but luckily things turned around and i now feel more like 25 again!

So struggling with my presents. My husband is worse than my parents - he won't even let me open one until tomorrow! Luckily a patient gave me one earlier which I opened before coming home...fingers crossed it will keep me going!
