Thanks Emmy! Sounds awesome. I think I shall get myself registered on pay day.
Mr Muddy enjoys an interesting midrange or art gallery. He enjoys photography so interesting things to take photos of is good to, markets, cafes, beer, sausages. They'll keep him entertained. So if you have any ideas that would be fab!
Excited. Will look at hotel sin the suggested areas.
I'm thrinking about an autumn marathon somewhere interesting (i.e. not my home town) Had a search and couldn't find anything on the forums on this - so apologies is there is and I missed it.
Has any one done the Colonge Marathon? What were your thoughts? Is it fast/flat (had a look on Garmin and found a profile with over 1000m of ascent! - but last yeras race times don't make it look that hilly) of is it bumpy and fast-ish or just plain hilly and slow?
What is the support like? Is is as good a race as things like London?
What is Colonge like (it looks nice!) and is there plenty to entertain Mr Muddy?
I've not entred UTMB. I have it on my list to do and am planning to attempt to qualify (and get through the ballott!) for CCC. Good luck to all of you in getting through and then in completing your races.
In looking to qualify i quite fancy The tour of the Vanoise is in late June. Its 72km and only gets 2 UTMB points but I've walked/camped the route and its awesome. So if you fancy something in the same area (its prob only 40km from Chamonix) then it might be worth a look. You can find the link on UTMBs qualifying races pages.
I've just bought a 910XT and so far I've only tested it for running and quite like it (although it is not massivly different from my old 405). However, the main reason i bought it was the virtual racer/course download function. I am really struggling with this though - so could do with some advice. I have registered the 910 to my exisiting Garmin Connect Account and i have downloaded the Communicator Plug in. I have tried to download one of my runs (downloaded from the 405) and i have tried to download runs/courses by other Garmin Connect users. Neither has worked. When i click on "send to device" i get the Send to Device dialogue box. This only finds the 910XT. So I have selected this and clicked the "send course" button. I then get one of those count down timer thingys then a message in the dialogue box saying "course successfully sent to device". However then i go to my 910XT watch and navigate here:Mode/menuTrainingcourses i can't see anything. All i see if an empyt box and 2 options under that: New (left) delete all(right). When i click the enter button all i can see are the previous runs. I can select these to race. But I want to use other runs, not recorded on this watch. The same is true of the virtual racer option. Does anyone have any ideas on what I'm doing wrong? Have i not enabled something?
If anyonce can help I'd really apprecaite it! Thanks
