My 405 froze today too, after downloading my run. I followed the instructions about holding down the two buttons for about 6 seconds, but nothing happened. After reading this topic I decided to persevere. In the end I had to hold the buttons down for over a minute, but it did reset itself.
Only hope the watch has a better idea how long 6 seconds is than the manual!
Thanks Jewels I think the problem with the Kayano IX is the loops to tighten the laces. I have noticed that they are attached to straps inside the shoe. When you tighten the laces they tighten the straps around the arch of your foot. I guess it gives extra support, but it gives me extra pain! I'm going to look for a more comfortable shoe and use the Kayano for shorter runs. I ran a brisk 10k in them on Thursday night and they were agony at the end.
Jewels, How long did it take for your feet to get used the Asics shoes? I bought my first pair of Asics six weeks ago and I now have a large blister under the arch of both feet. I've been using Compeed which do the trick, but I have done over 100 miles in them now and one blister only developed a couple of weeks ago. I was planning to run the London Marathon in them, but if the blisters continue I might have to think again!
This was my first GNR and although I had been warned I was disappointed with the day.
The long wait at the start would have been a nightmare if it wasn't for the banter going on around us. And what is the chance of having someone from the same village as you standing next to you at the start!
I had a bad run. I had trouble with my asthma after about three miles and struggled with it the rest of the way (probably the long wait at the start didn't help). The final hill was the end of me. I just want to say a big thank you to a Cancer Research runner who picked me up on the last mile and dragged me to the finish. Couldn't have done it without him.
I was at about the 7 minute mile marker at the start and it took three minutes to cross the start. Watching it back on TV I can't imagine how long it took for people behind me to cross the start.
Why wasn't there micro chips for runners in a race this size so that you can get an accurate time?
