Garmin Forerunner 310XT – The Review

Garmin Forerunner 310XT – The Review Thumbnail

Having abandoned treadmill running in favour of the great outdoors it wasn’t long before I began to bemoan the loss of my preferred running watch the Garmin Forerunner 305. I long for pretty maps to illustrate my outdoor running routes and spur me on to explore my surroundings and for that you need GPS. Fortunately [...]

Garmin Forerunner FR60 – The Review

I can get over the treadmill boredom frontier by sticking a gruesome thriller on the iPod but the absence of a reliable data capture device (or sports watch) could call the end to a beautiful gym relationship membership. I’ve worked my way through a number of fancy running watches over the years but my latest, [...]

While Not Running

While Not Running Thumbnail

Some of you may have noticed that I haven't run an awful lot of late, in fact if you want to be reasonably precise, I have run only once in the last month, which also happens to equate to once this year. How neat. If we want to be 100% precise it could be argued [...]

Great North Run 2008

I love this event, it is a complete pain to get to, it costs a fortune, it's almost impossible to get out of South Shields before night fall, but it still remains the highlight of my year. Grubby street urchins high fiving you, toddlers squirting bottled puddle water at your feet, spectators cheering and offering [...]

Nike Humanrace and Waterlogged Gadgets

Saturday evening, after entertaining my family with a slightly charred roast lamb joint but a perfectly acceptable bottle of vino (or two), I get an email from Nike.

Running Over Old Ground

The race packs seem to be dropping thick and fast through the letter box this week, after the painfully slow 5k at the weekend I came home and opened an envelope to discover I was entered in the Great Capital 10k in just 2 weeks time. Goodness knows when I signed up for that, I [...]

Garmin Forerunner 405 – The Review

As you all know, I think the Garmin Forerunner 305 is the best thing since sliced bread but I'm so fickle it's taken barely a thought for me to stick it on ebay and swap it for the new version - the Forerunner 405. I'd like to say the new and IMPROVED Forerunner 405 but [...]

Utility Run

I'm supposed to be off work at the moment on study leave but it may as well be called gardening leave as I'm spending all my time on the allotment. Today I thought I'd make my non-studying day a little bit more productive by running to the plot and I'm glad I did as it [...]

Do I Need This?

What a question - of course I do! Just check out the ring of light, how have I managed to live so long without it? It's not too clear how the new Garmin Forerunner 405 compares to our trusty friend the 305. Sure there are the beauty enhancements and some wizadry that enables wireless upload [...]
