Will look at the 305 thank you, does it beep at you to tell you if you are running too fast/slow when doing interval training?

Hi all,

Am driving myself crazy looking at all the different garmin watches available so can anyone recommend one for me please? What I'm after is the following:-

An accurate mileage

Something that I can programme to do interval training - (If there is such a thing?)

I don't want to spend a fortune but am quite serious about my running and am after something to help me improve.

I've been using a nike+ for years and although it's great to track your runs the mileage is very inaccurate.

Thanks for any help or suggestions!

p.s I have very small wrists so don't want a huge watch.

Ha! 1:30 In my dreams I'm 34 seriously sleep deprived thanks to my two small kids, Think my time has passed..... mmm 1:30 could you imagine!!

Was thinking of joining a running club, I've been running on my own, think I would enjoy the company and extra motivation.

So should I do the intervals/speed/hill repeats during the week and just mix it up a bit?

Hi all,

After some advice please regarding training, I've recently done the bristol half marathon following a sub 1.45, 10 week training plan and did it 1:39:08. Am not planning another half until Bath in March. (when i will follow another training plan)

What training should I do to keep my level of fitness, Is the following acceptable or should I just keep following the last few weeks of the training plan?

Monday:- Rest
Tues:- 5 miles easy
Wednesday:- Rest
Thursday:- 6-8 miles Race pace
Friday:- 3 miles
Sat:- Rest
Sunday:- Long Run 10 miles

Thanks for any advice.

Bristol Half Marathon 2011

Well what a change in the weather, I was absolutely boiling at one point! Got a pb 1:39:08 for me, so really pleased. Thats dreadful about the runner being given treatment, really hope they are ok?

Yes agree about the water think there was some just after 10 miles then that was it, that hill at 11 miles also needs to be re-thinked!

Yep goodie bag was rubbish, tshirt and medal good though!

There are some seriously fast runners out there! Was amazing to see them bombing down the portway! All round, I throughly enjoyed it!

Well done everyone!

Well that is just typical about the weather! I'm not good running in the wind - rain I don't mind but wind no thanks!

Had a sports massage today to ease a very slight niggily hamstring so going to rest today then do last run tomorrow a very gentle 2 miles, then thats me done!

Lets keep our fingers crossed that the weather takes a turn for the better!

Hi All
Just found this tread! So exciting its getting near now! This is my second time of running Bristol ran 1:56 in 2008, Ran Bath half in March this year and ran 1:42.

My Target:- beat PB 1:42
Predicted:- errrr 1:45???
Dream time:- 1:39:59 (So desperate to get under 1:40)!!!!!

Yikes! Got major nerves writing the above down!!

Just hope its not windy like today! Or hot - can you imagine after the crappy summer we've had - I'm not used to running in heat!!!

Hi All,

 Firstly sorry if this question has been asked lots but the search function isn't working so can't check old messages.

I'm running the Bristol half Marathon next sunday and following a sub 1.45 plan which I followed for Bath and ran it 1.42, but for the last week of training for Bath I had a terrible cold so only ran one 10 mile run and a 3 miler during the week. 

So my question is do I keep to the plan which is the followingunday:- 12 miles, Monday:- Rest, Tues:- 3 miles plus 6x60m strides, Weds:-  3miles, Thurs:-5 miles(race pace), Fri:-2miles  OR do I keep to what I did for Bath?

Don't know if this helps but ran a total of 33 miles last week which included 13.2 miles on Saturday. Thanks for any help or any other training suggestions, am getting a bit confused with what to do.
