Hey Ho Let's Go! Vegan removed from runner's world cover

I think everyone should cut them some slack. Obviously all those supplement pills they need to pop to maintain the right nutrition makes them a little cranky....

The last thing you want to do is upset a bunch of vegans!

Cost of older Garmin models

Posted: 31/10/2014 at 14:23

After noticing the strap on my old 110 is starting to splitt I thought I would do some research into upgrading and seeing what is out there. I am far from an early adopter so have no interest in parting with extra cash just to get the latest version but I am shocked that the prices on the older models do not seem to discount.

The 110 is actually priced at more than I paid for it nearly 3 years ago (it was a good deal but still).

Anyone have thoughts on why the older models don't get sold off?

Does age grading favour older athletes?

Agree with Philpub. in your late 20's-30's your measuring against proffesionals who are spending their working day building towards those records. The masters although they are outstanding are just not operating at that same level either in time, intensity or coaching support.


Great Birmingham Run chip time errors?

Sounds like auto pause to me. distance errors sure but time never.

Did not run it this year but last year some of the underpass were so loud you would not have heard your watch beeping at you.

Vomiting post marathon

I suffered this also, I am not sure what the body is doing but whilst screaming for water and fuel it seems to reject everything. A very experienced running friend told me to try flat cola after the race. It works for me so far.

Seems coke is easier to digest than sports drinks / gels but gives a similar fuel burst. The only time I will ever recommend drinking the stuff.....

If you need the crutch of music to get you through a run then you are not a proper runner........

Its a holiday! why bother running?

I don't get peeps that run on holiday. Unless your top notch elite a week is not going to make much diffrence your body needs a rest once in a while so do it on holiday.

I love running in new places. Whenever i go somewhere either on holiday or work I always try to squeeze in at least one run. Nice to see something new and the software I download the GPS to puts a red dot on the map where I log a run, its great to see the number of different places. 

How hard should non-sporty 11yo be pushed?

Posted: 09/10/2014 at 15:35

If he can run a sub 30 min 5k there is a reasonable level of base fitness that should not mean you are worried for health reasons especially considering the otehr activities.

Never push anyone to do anything they are not keen on. However don't let him grow into a man that has no interest in any sport. Never trust a man that has zero interest in sport.....
