Ashridge Boundary Run

Thanks for a great race today Andy! You even managed to arrange the rain to hold off I was impressed by the amount of marshal's you had out on the course, esp. in the middle of nowhere. Could you pass on my thanks and appreciation.

Thinking about it, would it be logistically possible for you to let the runners choose which way round they run at the start? I.e some go clockwise some anticlockwise depending on their preference? Could be fun with people always assuming the other way is faster, plus if you're out running you get to meet more  runners.

I won't be running those steps either up or down

The route is better clockwise imo. More down and less up - yes I know, but clockwise the climbs are short and steep, and you get long gentle down hills, whereas anti-clockwise you get a long up hill drag through Golden Valley with all that height gain wasted going down a flight of steps at Hanging Combe.
Anyway I'll be there Saturday grumbling to myself that the race is the wrong way round, and using that to justify my pace

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

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.

Mix one part hydrogen with two parts oxygen. Dilute to taste.

What's the duathlon? Clearly the organiser hates cycling

Why are running tops so gopping?

Nike admit their running shoe advice is rubbish.

Well sort of.
