Suffer in September - Suffer in Silence

Suffer in silence.Have been merrily bumping along with heart rate monitor on and taking a note of suffer scores as we go. Thoughts so far: Well if we keep in mind that the bands go from unrated for under 100; 100 to 150 as 'Tough'; 151 to 250 as 'Extreme'; and those above 250 as 'Epic', then........Bike: given [...]

Suffer in September - Strava Premium Review

Our Garmin Challenge

Garmin step counter challenge.Last year we did a review of the 920XT watch. At the time we were aware it did a lot (perhaps more than we could fathom or use) and a year on while we are still happily using it to track our runs and cycles, there are a number of functions that really [...]

Hoka Review - ish

OK so note really a review at all, rather a an admittance to ineptitude. As we mentioned last week, we planned to head along and lend our support as the competitors headed through at Inversnaid and we were 'taking a punt on our maths' for arrival times to catch some of the early action. On the plus side, [...]
