Ceal - Thanks for the thought, but the fundraising is the very part that she dreads.

Very humid, heavy going. Well that's my excuse.

It took me nearly half an hour to set up Garmin Connect because they've now added in Garmin Express between reading your Garmin device and putting the details into Garmin Connect. The screen readout is more or less the same layout but is designed differently and, needless to say (?), the Express version takes longer. Or, trying to be fair, it may be just because it's the first time through. It seems there are so many different screens available that it's confusing.

Ceal - Fascinated with how your watch works - sounds dodgy to me. Let us know how it goes.

Hi everyone

nrd 

I should have told you yesterday that when I woke up (late) the cold had gone. So I had it for 2½ days flat - that's what I call an answer to prayer.

I'm completely confused by all these new devices that seem to be proliferating. How can you possibly choose what would suit you best? I'm sure I'd wind up thinking that whatever I'd bought, I'd have been better suited by something else. So I'll stick with what I have.

Another thing that I don't understand is this "magic mile" idea you were all discussing a couple of weeks ago. I must have missed something because I don't know anything about it. Would it be of any use to me, a virtual non-runner?

I had a revelation just recently. Angela and I went out for a drink with our son one evening last week, as is our wont from time to time, and he asked me if I still intend to do the VLM when I'm 80 next year. I cringed and equivocated because I knew Angela was against the idea, as I thought. He was disappointed and said he'd been telling all his friends that I intend to do so. He asked if I'd applied and, expecting a tirade from Angela, I admitted I had, adding that I wasn't looking forward to the inevitable fund raising if I didn't get a ballot place. That's when I was surprised by Angela merely saying that's the bit she dreads, as though she's expecting me to go through with it. So how about that? Is the way now clear? Watch this space.

Good afternoon/evening

Didn't get up at all early this morning having slept 10 hrs, with just two short breaks, one for the loo and one for a drink. I was hit by the onset of a cold Wednesday pm, most unseasonal and totally demoralising as I've had nothing of the sort for 3+ years. I've dosed it with honey and hot lemon and rebuked it frequently all to no avail, although as I write this it seems to have improved somewhat. It's not troubling me apart from the runny nose and the blow to my pride (thinking I had them licked after all this time). So this morning's intended run was scratched.

Well I'm not HRM dependent, I don't even look at it whilst running and when I'm doing rw, which is the way of things just now, I only have the timer showing. I publish the figures because the Garmin records them but I don't take much notice of them otherwise.

It was nice and cool this morning with scarcely a breeze - ideal running conditions, well for me anyway. Nearly free of 14s but nearly three of them. How's that for a paradox and a pun?
