Never going to happen.

Chances are she will have to walk most of the way. Clearly she should be able to manage that but Sub 7 might be nearer the mark.

I did a recce on the Steyning course with a friend of mine, she was really slow. But then she's also pregnant so I wasn't too hard on her. 

Then I tried it again last week but it was really windy. 

If I manage any day next week it would be Wednesday evening (I work in Dorking).

I just read your post properly. You've already been in the sea. 

On the subject of wet suits, I bought my Orca wetsuit a few years ago from ebay. Second hand, hardly used, about £50. I wouldn't want to borrow one on the day that I'd not used before.

I'm swimming in the sea without a wetsuit now and it's fine. There's things you can do to help you acclimatise which essentially involve getting cold a lot. Cold showers, for example, instead of hot.

I was in the sea last Wednesday evening. It's about 12 degrees. 

Get in the sea! It's lovely!

I have. How long does the sync generally take? It is reported to be 3-5 minutes, but I'm 24 hours on now.

Hello. I just took the plunge and bought myself a 920xt - I've set it all up, everything syncs correctly with my Garmin Connect account and with my iphone, all pretty seamless.

There is an option to connect Garmin to Strava and Strava is supposed to periodically pull data from Garmin Connect. I've signed in and linked my accounts but my activities aren't appearing in my Strava feed.

I've changed all the privacy settings to public and unlocked the individual activities, so it should all work, but it isn't.

Anyone got any ideas?

Your first step, master reset. It'll wipe all your data. If this doesn't work, something's wrong...

To perform the master reset:

  1. Start with device powered off†
  2. Press and hold Mode and Power
  3. Release buttons once Do You Really Want To Erase All User Data? message appears
  4. Select Yes
