Garmin Forerunner 301

Posted: 08 March 2006
Overall: A fantastic bit of kit that enables insights into your training and racing that has to be useful - my pace judgement is now far more accurate (and that's without the 301 on as well as with it), and as a result my times have come down to levels I'd only dreamt of before.

If the new version, the 305, has sorted out the minor gripes with reception and the HRM, then I really can't imagine a better tool for improving your running, cycling and triathlon performance (well, short of losing a stone and running a bit quicker!).

Feet in the Clouds: A Tale of Fell-Running and Obsession by Richard Askwith

Posted: 04 December 2005
Overall: Having supported a mate on his third (and successful) Bob Graham attempt I can appreciate the obsession that goes along with this particular piece of idiocy. I also know some of the characters mentioned from various races - a great book.
