I've got a Garmin 101. Don't know whether they still make them. It's a bit bulky but runs off two AAA batteries and lasts about 12-15 hours. I usually change the batteries after 12 hours usually at the 1/2 way checkpoint or thereabouts. No data is lost. It just doesn't record the few seconds when the batteries are out.
Great race on Sunday. PB at 5h 40. 1st half great views and pleasant going under foot, but strong willpower needed on that long gravel track in the second half. Very sociable event as one passes/is passed by other runners. Got to agree with dwb and louisfromlondon about the grass 3-ply track. It would have been difficult in the first few miles let alone near the end. Still great fun and all good training for the Wessex 100 at the end of the month.
It seems as though the Worcester AC website is updated regularly every two years or so (still no sign of last years results!). I suspect Pitchcroft will be well under water tomorrow as the river is still rising.
4 miles from Worcester. At home, not stuck in drowned car like many. All arks now sold out. As for Sunday, I'd wait to see what the floods are like on the day. It'll be a simple choice between running shoes or prayer and sandals. We certainly won't be able to and watch the cricket instead as New Road is already under water.
Hi I started doing circuit training once a week after illness 5 years ago, then started running 2 years ago. Still circuit train and run 3-4 times a week. Seems a good mix. I've only lost 1/2 stone tho' as I've put on more muscle on upper body. Upside is a small bum and rejuvenated 6 pack. I think SWMBO approves and I can now do 10k in under an hour. Indeed hope to break 70 mins. on the May Hill Massacre next weekend.
