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 [...]

World Rubber Crisis

OGB may well have left London in search of science but he hasn't stopped harassing me. The last email I got from him went along the lines of "how do you fancy doing a 10k race in Cardiff?" Cardiff? That's in a whole different country, why would you bother? He obviously thinks I've gone soft [...]

Isn't it lovely when the powers that be decide to organise a running event slap bang on your doorstep? I was still luxiariating in my bubble bath as registration was opening, which has got to beat bouncing up and down with a fitness first instructor as a way to warm up...... mmmm let me see.....

BPTT Update for 19th May

BPTT Update for 19th May Thumbnail

Not much to report on the running front this week, it's all been quite a struggle. Deege explains the runners eternal battle with the mind body dichotomy better than I ever could. I'm afraid to say that while Deege managed to win her battle, I just bailed. Out on my long run my body started [...]

At the special request of Jogblog who always manages to pick great t-shirts with running events tagged on as a bonus, I have set up my own homage to the tatty duster material I get landed with. Maybe when I get a whole stack of them I might go really nerdy and have them turned [...]

Stratford Sprint Tri – Results

The official results are up now, so my gadget catastrophe didn't matter too much in the end. I'm not familiar with the way triathlon results are recorded but I'm assuming they include the transition time immediately after each event. It's quite an achievement to capture everyones stage results without the use of the timing chips, [...]

Cold Cold Feet

Cold Cold Feet Thumbnail

I'm having a fairly serious anxiety moment. I always get cold feet during the build up to a race event but this weekends triathlon is a whole new kettle of panic and paranoia. A typical running event will see me pitching up in full running attire and in a state of planned dehydration so I'm [...]

Run, bike, swim

Sundays now seem to be the day for upside down triathlons. This morning I nipped out for a short run around Chswick and Barnes Bridge to check out the aftermath of the boat race. Gorgeous morning, the river seemed to be teeming with kayaks for a change. After a longish transition involving the production of [...]

I Float

I took advantage of my extra light hour this evening and cycled down to Pools in the Park for a little paddle. Seems I can still remember how to float but forward progress is slow and quite painful actually. The front of my ankle hurts after a few lengths so I had to give up [...]
