LmH - not really a geek (yet) but it is quite good to know & record splits.
I don't become a slave to it, I see others include warm ups and stuff like that in there (I don't) and I rarely use it for the runs I do with the kids. No interest in the segment stuff and all that PR and kudos nonsense.
As for the present it will depend what he's into, but most of the kids I train (ages 8-10) talk about lego, monsters and remote control things. You can get the latter quite cheaply from Argos. Not sure if batteries are compatible for Denmark though. If you want me to ask for more ideas on Thursday I can do.
what - possibly rest, possibly a trip to A&E, possibly 3-4 very slow miles
why - ribs hurt and painkillers help, may need stronger ones. Arguably it would be pointless as they will say I've damaged something, so rest. I don't usually take pills but nurofen x3 a day help numb the pain. It's only breathing that hurts and there are no bruises. Not sure easy running will help, I certainly won't be running (i.e. breathing) hard for a week or so.
last rest - possibly today, otherwise 29/10
last hard - still the top corner of that field
