Insomnia: The Activity Tracker Showdown

Insomnia: The Activity Tracker Showdown Thumbnail

Many people will have gone to bed last night with a degree of melancholy angst. Like me they will have forlornly switched the alarm back on after the luxury of 10 back to back lie ins. I fell asleep then woke, bolt upright at 2:30 am full of dread about my imminent return to work. I [...]

Move! The Cheek of New Gadgets

Move! The Cheek of New Gadgets Thumbnail

The arrival, this morning, of a new and exciting watch encouraged me to ignore my rapidly filling sinus cavities and venture out for a tentative jog. I opted for a trail run around the local mud common and as anticipated it was tough and wheezy. I was so excited by the finish alert from my new [...]

I’ve been running with my iPhone for a couple of years and I think I have now got a fairly stable armory of running or health related apps that I would be prepared to recommend. I’ll split them into 4 sections and go from there. The Running Logs The iPhone is my ever present mobile [...]

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 [...]

Adidas and Garmin Footpod Compatibility

I’ve tried out a few of the gadgets head to head but have now come to the conclusion that my Adidas foot pod does not respond well when it is in the heel recess of the specially adapted Adidas shoes. Yesterday I headed to the incredibly soggy climes of Mitcham Common for my run and [...]

Adidas miCoach Assessment

I step out of my door and find myself mid way up the Col du Norbury. The hill has already wrecked my bike and now it has scuppered my first miCoach assessment. The assessment requires you to start walking and then gradually work your way up the effort scale from 4 to 9. 9 being [...]

Adidas MiCoach and New Gadget Heaven

Adidas invited me and a few other bloggers (Big Runner and Running Matters) to try out their recent entrant into the sports gadget market - the miCoach pacer. On Thursday evening I arrived at the Millenium Arena in Battersea Park ready for the presentation. I began to sweat almost immediately as I spotted the running [...]

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, [...]

London to Brighton 2009

Call that a bike ride....? At one point I thought we were actually going to be walking all the way to Brighton. Experienced L2B'ers had warned me to start the event early but I'm too lazy to get up for a 6am start. I may have had a leisurely 8:30am kick off but I very [...]

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 [...]
