Andrew- this seems like the same technology as we use in hospitals for pulse oximetery, so I'm not sure your argument hold water- need to have reasonable contact , and decent ciculation- won't work on a freeixng cold limb!

I am enjoying mine, and it seems very relaible sp far.

Yeah TRex, but you aren't mortal!

Neil- Don't know whether you are anywhere near scotland, or on facebook, but if you are- try looking at the fling page- there are a few recce runs planned already.

How's it going?

I'm doing 4 weeks off running after my last race, just maintaining fitness with spinning etc, and started hill training with a brisk walk up the local hilss last week- ouch - DOMS of the gluts!. And got the HR up to 160 just with walking up the hill!. Brings it home that a lot of hill walking practice will be vital.

I found that setting a beep was annoying, and I thinkk it was bad for the battery, I use a duracell rechrger to top up my Garmin mid- race ( it'sa forrunner 405, I think)- not all of them still work whilst recharging, but mine does.

It would be good to have an inaudible alert to switch- perhap vibration, rather than a beep, but I can't figure out how to do it.

The main problem is that you keeprunning past folk, then being overtaken when you stopruiining, and do your walk breaks. it's jut not very sociable, as there's no way too keep a grouptogether.

Not running at all for 4 weeks , in the hope that my legs recover from all the little accumulated niggles- spending the time on spinning classes/ hill walking , etc, and a holiday- gonna get back into it at start of december.

Plann for next year so far-"a" race is fling. Also signed up for fort william marathon. No other fixed ideas yet. Any other recommendations for off-road races? 

I don't want to get bogged down into a predictable regime of G2E, CS40, and GO33, and miss out on a load of other stuff.................I am slightly tempted by the cape wrath week, but I've never been good at recvering after races, and suspect I would struggle with the full week.

From 0 to a Marathon in 22 weeks.

Yup- that's almost exactly how I did my first marathon in about 4:20. I think I meant to do run 10: walk 1,but I started with shorter walk breaks, and slowed dramatically towardsthe end- but then I reallyhadn't trained well, due ot a knee injury, so a poor last 6 miles was not surprising.
