Absolutely no idea if these are any good, but Groupon has a 50% off a pair atthe moment. I think it only lasts 24 hours:

Anyone know if they are any good?

Wouldn't tablet break apart / dissolve pretty easily? Flapjack has half a chance, and has a combination of simple and complex carbs in there.

Mikasa: I fully recommend "Total Immersion". Even reading the book converted me to a FC swimmer. Probably need to get soime coaching, but this is a good start.

Mizuno Wave Inspire 7

I'm on a pair of Wave Inspire 8 now: slightly larger around the toe area, a little bit lighter again, but still perfectly fine as far as I'm concerned.

Deciding on marathon Pace

Posted: 24/05/2013 at 11:49

I would start at the 9 min mile pace for trhe first half, and then see if you can oush it after that. Maybe even wait until 20 miles. It would be a shame to jeopardise the 4 hour target by starting too quick. If you are feeling good at 20 miles or so, then go for it.

Realistic Targets for beginner?

Posted: 21/05/2013 at 16:05

I've three and a half years running now, and I have achieved two of these (the 5 and 10K ones). I recommend regular timed runs: parkrun - a target every week.

I reckon the marathon target is the most difficult of those targets, incidentally, but we are all made differently.

The K-Swiss We love Manchester 10k on July is a much cheaper alternativeStarts in the athletics stadium next to the Etihad.

If it is a pool-based tri (I'm guessing it is), then you will be set off in waves. Once you are out of the pool, no one will know what position you are in, so no stress there!
