Hope you are soon sorted, GOM/RFJ! A marathn might not be very wise though!
I might be interested in LV at some stage, also...although a half marathon sounds a long way for me at present! WP: are you on the entry list? Was looking for a friend but couldn't see him and didn't notice you (although I may not have the correct name!).
Daughter has be inspired to go for a few post Olympic runs and cycles and has even gone as far as investing in a Garmin. It is one that has an integrated hrm: anyone any experience of this as she is getting very high readings. Today's steady run saw her average 188bpm and a max of 201. The scores seem unlikely! She is reasonably fit: midfielders in hockey cover a lot of ground.
