SJ thanks for the tip about hr monitor and changing batteries, been using a garmin soft strap but hr been shooting up into z6 and ending up walking trying to be good. Never even thought about the batteries. Couldnt change them on the soft strap but still had the old strap and put new batteries in that.

Now a happy chap as 1 hr brick completed all in z2 and no walking!!!

Looking forward to tomorrow nights run now, just to get myself into the pool in the morning for first swim in ages.

Well migraine and lurgy for me for the past 2 days. Now just lurgy and not too bad really but another day without training.

BBT - Alpkit do a great headtorch, I use it for running on unlit roads and it copes really well.

+1 for the alpkit. Got one for crimbo and really like running in the dark.

+1 for Alpkit

I can buy a new one for the price of the fancy dan battery in my old torch!

BBT - here's a nice balanced, objective review of Alpkit torches

16/01/2013 at 16:48

Raf do Alpkit sponsor Pirates or something?

On another note, anyone read the Outlaw e-newsletter entitled 'Going, going, gone'? I couldn't get past the heading of the first article. When 'THEIR' gone, 'THEIR' gone? The Outlaw "sold IT'S 1300 spots"? 

As a high-ranking officer in the grammar police (special apostrophe unit), I felt it my obligation to write and complain about their appalling grammar. Almost unsubscribed I was so affronted.

I spotted another 'whats the harm in entering now'? I wonder if they've done this on purpose to smite me.

Rather pleased at having survived 2 hours on the turbo this afternoon, thanks to my son's Kindle Fire and Ski Sunday followed by Pramface

16/01/2013 at 17:09

Oh god, I found more: "whats the harm in entering now", "your mutli-sport season", "do you to stay in high quality..", "accomodation". I need a wee lie down.

Boules.........I hate pedants on the forums but i agree that companies should use the correct english

EP _ Did you not have a place anyway?

Britsky -  do you read whilst on the turbo? That could make time go quicker.

SS - I tend to read during the spin session. I have the metronome on (so can't have any other noise which distracts me), and I read a page and then count 100 (to take up an extra minute) before I turn the page, to keep me concentrating on the cadence.

I ration my reading, because I'm really particular about what I read, so when I get into a book I want to make it last, so try not to read every day. Just finished Holg's book, so now I'll have a time of no reading, because I need a time to let it sink in before I'll be ready to try something else. 

... loved it, by the way, Holgs, especially all the reflective stuff at the end - my sentiments entirely, but expressed better than I could!

16/01/2013 at 19:03

Britsky - I just finished his book too. Great read. Very inspiring but it's dangerous reading books like that with talks of more than 1 ironman and ultras etc

Still got the lurgy so might try a slow turbo tomorrow and a read.

Huge apologies if I came across as a pedant. If I'm the only one bothered by the plethora of errors in the newsletter, I promise to remain ever quiet on my soapbox. It was also an attempt at humour though, and apologies if I offended. I would never mock the spelling or grammar of anyone on the forums, but I expect a bit better from a published newsletter. I promise to keep my deep thoughts to myself from now on
