All this talk about paris pens etc is making me jealous.Looks like I'll need to settle for manchester this spring.I managed my 1st 12 miler since Paris,the freezing wind and rain makes me wonder why I put myself through the training for a spring marathon.

Have any of you used Hal higdons training schedules before.Ive mixed a RW and a HH one.I use the RW for midweek and his methods for weekend.His schedule involves a marathon pace run followed by LSR the next day,starting at 5m/10m building towards 10m/20m

Charlie-a physio once told me to heat the muscle with a hot water bottle to get blood flowing before stretching or rolling the injured area.

Charlie/Orapidrun-thought so,it's hard to imagine a watch that doesn't tell you your paces,apart from distance it's probably the next most critical information

Orbutt-Im swaying towards the forerunner 220 now.I read a review on Amazon complaining that the watch doesn't display your average pace you are running at.Thats probably the biggest feature I use my watch for is knowing Im running at a steady pace,I'm thinking surely the guy in the review must be wrong,do you know if it does have average pace display.

BM-Thanks for the reply.I do much the same routine as you.I usually do 2-3 sets on a Wednesday,which explains why I'm sore the next day.I will try 2-3 days a week but cut it down to 1 set.

Totally agree with TD,even after fretting about my injury in the build up to and the early miles of Paris,I actually really enjoyed it as I wasn't pushing myself for a time,I was just making sure I finished.

Orbutt-does the 220 allow you to transfer data straight to iphone etc.Theres not much wrong with the 305 I have,except it looks like a watch James Bond might use.Ive never transferred data from it as my laptop is sluggish and I don't use it anymore.So just looking for something that iphone compatible really.
