share your ambitions/goals/training here on a 'newbie ultra' thread........
Which suunto touie?
Cant use suuntos - something about my pace getting smaller and smaller and .....
altimeter? i like these words..i want an altimeter fingy
slaneuk: so, it doesn't turn off when you connect it to the battery pack? That's really, really useful information.
I have small wrists so have to wear it over a wristband anyway, so shouldn't be worried by the cradle.
I suppose I can call NDW50 and SDW50 training runs for the Lakeland 50.
Sounds awesome Touie, I have been looking at the ambit too.

The altimeter is great I walk up and down the stairs at work and it shows a little graph of the height change! I'm sure I'll get bored of it one day... Maybe
I WANT ONE TOUIE!!!
Debra - not seen it turn off when I add a pack. The more annoying thing I find is if I put the thing on to charge day to day and someone switches off the plug, the damn thing turns on and merrily proceeds to drain the battery down!
Sooooo ...it aint all its cracked up to be or supadupa after all then Slaneuk?
slaneuk. That's great. Now I just need to find a battery charger pack into which I can plug the USB lead... The little Duracell one someone mentioned earlier http://www.amazon.co.uk/Duracell-PPS1-mini-USB-Connectors-Batteries/dp/B001FC49TK/ref=pd_sim_ce_6 looks good but I'm not sure about the connection - the far end of the cradle for the 310 (the end that plugs into the plug, normally) is a standard USB - anyone know if that Duracell one has a USB connection? Or knows of one that does?
Sympathies about the "drains if plug switched off" problem - and thanks for the warning!
Whats wrong with people wanting to do a triathlon?
Are you saying triathlets are people too?!
I'm just messing about
no you arnt
Whats wrong with triathlons ?
erm.....nuffink? ...if you like that sorta thing-fashion shows of lycra etc
oh you lot are making me chuckle tonight as I skim down the days conversation highlights!!! LOL at the man in the pub (no sorry, sauna!) ... oneses - eek, although hubby has just purchased a set of winter cycling tights complete with bib, that is truely a sight to behold - erm NOT!!
I set off on an ultra with my Garmin going and then when it fades, well, I don't usually care by then as by that point I am just pleased if I am still managing to run along anything! More and more I am finding myself heading out without the garmin and it's very liberating
It's the triathletes who insist on wearing there oh-so-fetching oneses for road races - horrid memories of the first eight miles of the Shakespeare marathon the other year behind (thankfully) such a sight - they never place the race number in a strategic position either.
That said, I quite fancy a triathlon actually, would have to be something suitably stoopid like the Helvellyn tri or similar though!!
