Magnetic bracelet/necklace

I'd recommend you get a watch rather than a bracelet, given that you're 4 years late to the conversation. Plus some of them have crystals in em, so a double win



Checkpoints Race - anyone up for making ateam of 5

Maybe I'm just grumpy, or missing something, but it looks like a bucket of bollocks dreamt up by someone who wished they'd invented Strava.

Running Seriously for a month (High heart rate?)

Your HR looks perfectly normal for a new runner too me.
7:10 is a faster pace than your threshold pace if your 5k time is 23 minutes

University research help - running accessories

There you go.
Design a waist mounted toilet roll holder and flapjack storage system utilising  ADS (Anti Dog Shit) technology.
You could also design an aero version for triathletes.

Plus it's a learnt problem.
We're the last generation that can remember a pre internet pre mobile phone era, where such a thing as no signal wouldn't be an issue, because there wasn't a signal to be concerned about in the first place.


Training going well, injury free and up to 13.1 mile trail run in week 3.

Experts are idiots though. 
When I started (from a background of mtb like the op)I did a long run of 11 miles in my first week, 13 the week after, and 17 the week after that.
Could of carried on if it wasn't for tearing my knee cartilage on the third run

sub 35 possible for over 40?

They're one in the same. You won't get sub 35 by just training. You need to be made of the right stuff too.

Well sort of.
