After a bit of research and some niggly ITB and achillies issues, I decided to make the change to minimalist trainers and having always used Saucony I opted for the Cortana's. My ITB and achillies niggles have gone and I feel that my gait has improved. I am now more of fore foot striker and am much lighter on my feet. BUT....after 5 months my calves are still suffering. It's not debilitating but always uncomfortable no matter how much I try and stretch them out. Should I go back to 'normal' trainers or live with the sore calves?
My biggest weakness in running is my leg strength and I have decided to introduce some cycling as I have obtained a road bike and Turbo trainer. I don't really want to reduce my running mileage or frequency but would like to do the cycling sessions in addition. The question is on what days should I do them easy/hard/rest?
I have had my 205 for nearly a year and had no real problems until recently. It now takes upto 5 mins to locate satellites and loses reception more frequently. Not sure if this is because I have moved to Germany or not. Should I send it back?
Anyway, I just use the standard Garmin software and am keen to upgrade. There seems to be a lot of references to firmware and different downloadable features etc etc. Could someone gve me some direction in laymans terms of what I need to do. Thanks
I have had my 205 for just short of a year and think it is a great training aid. However, i find that I am waiting upto 5 minutes for it to acquire the satellites and it is starting to really annoy me. I also find that it loses reception quite often. Nobody else seems to have these problems. I am considering sending it back to Garmin.
