suggestions for GPS running watch

Posted: 27/12/2014 at 06:58
I just got the garmin forerunner 10. I was using the 305 for years but it was just way too big & was getting awful at locking onto the satellite. The 10 I love already, only thing it doesn't show pace on same screen (you have to press a button) but I've not found this a problem & I've set the virtual partner. It's on offer on Amazon for about ??50 at the moment which is good value.

Any one else looking for a sub-1h30 half?

Well done Tiny! This is my golden aim for 2015. I'm about 3/4 mins off it and was getting close until injuries ruined my summer!

Straightforward take on fat burning for distance running

I prefer running early mornings 'on empty' but need to be well hydrated day before etc. sometimes it's lack of sleep that affects my running more than lack of carbs!

Wee smelling. Lawks!

I've had a history of thyroid problems (under-active) but I had glandular fever a few years ago and my white blood count is low so I get more viruses now when I am training more (higher mileage etc). I don't get colds a great deal but I get swollen glands and an anaemic type of fatigue (even when my iron levels are ok). So have to be careful. Eating well/resting is important when the body is giving these signs- I've learnt the hard way and ended up ill/injured by not listening!

want to rule out stress fracture

Any kind of pain is not good, severe pain and anything weight bearing is a big concern- need rest but go see a dr/professional ASAP!

Shin Splints

I agree booktrunk! I have just changed shoes and there was immediate difference, convinced my mizuno (sp?) were too big and not right. My new shoes are fantastic.

Shin splints are nasty and also cover so many different issues its often hard to say what the actual problem is!

Fractured Metatarsal

I had this stress fracture a few years ago. It wasn't diagnosed properly for over 2 months so it took a very long time to heal. Think I was unable to run for months- must have been at least 13 weeks or so similar to the poster above. Good news is I came back much stronger and faster!
