Overdone it?

Mine used to always take the longest when I was away from home when I also couldn't just leave it outside so I recognise your descriptions above except mine were mainly done in hotel car parks in USA at 3am in the morning or some equally ridiculous time between massive high buildings in London.

I put mine on top of the car and occasionally (well twice) the car is driven off with Garmin still atop - one by me once not. It survived both those journeys but not the journey back from London in a bag with rest of my wet running gear.

Nova I think at your stage you can run whatever you can run when you do something a bit faster as you will be improving every week. Just make sure you don't do too much of the faster stuff - one session a week is probably plenty - and keep the rest of your running nice and slow.

Are you DT in disguise?

I think though if you eat an apple regularly for the next few weeks you will be able to eat an apple in exactly the same way but at only 74 bpm or at 75 bpm you will be able to eat an apple faster.

Oh bad news about your foot and terrible news about you getting a HRM.

I need a new garmin but I am looking for a cheap and cheerful solution that doesn't do HRM but does find satellites quickly - I'm picking between the 220 and the 25 at the moment - anybody got either?

I used to have a 205 if that makes any difference.

Haha - 55 or 110? Either way it doesn't matter I'm going to politely decline. It's just too far for me to believe it could be enjoyable whatever the weather and when it comes to the weather well.....

Also I've got quite a lot of PBs to work on next year, the clock is ticking, so anything like your little adventure will have to wait.

Hi Pete - yes the route info was dropped in for you. By cutting across the side of Hallin Fell I got a great view up both Boredale and then Martindale and with the sun out and a liberal dusting of snow on the higher peaks but with some remnants of autumn colours still hanging on.....oh what the hell am I doing at work!

I did consider running through the grounds of Sharrow Bay on the way back but I was pretty certain that I wouldn't have passed any dress rules they have if I'd wanted a cup of tea.

I planned to do the Ullswater 10k trail race this year but they fill up really early and it caught me out - maybe next year.

In fact I fancy trying a few of the trail races but more likely after April 2017. Yesterday made me think I was probably up to some of the easier fell races too although, as I've said before, they are more enjoyable at leisurely walk pace.

Had club presentation tonight. The award was in fact an internal club award in that the men's xc team were awarded club team of the year for a couple of reasons so got a medal for that.

No - you need to be competing with people outside your club.

Nova - I don't ski.

I just purchased some new Brooks 7 last night. They are totally yellow.

EDIT: Sorry there is the odd fleck of black and a bit of silver on the front.

In a week of lots of running but little racing Silver league updated for DT losing 3 pounds although there has been no update since he ate and drank constantly for three days to celebrate being so light.
