That’s right, bitches. Time to step this marathon training up a gear. And since I like to have all the gear and no idea, I’ve invested in the one tool that will truly make me look professional – that is until you see me running at which point all illusions are well and truly shattered.
It’s sort of like a fitness tamagotchi. I want to feed it decent runs – in fact I’m constantly checking my calendar during work days to schedule in a cheeky run during my lunch break. Took it out today for a few miles to keep it happy. And yes, I know I talk in miles now – I’ve been gone that long that I no longer think in kilometres.
Anyway, if you’re like me and you want to actually improve your times, I totally recommend splashing out on one of these bad boys. I’m sure I’ll never use the heart rate monitor it comes with, but it gives me all the pace, distance and time data I need to see how depressingly average I am at putting one put in front of the other in quick succession.
If you want to read a decent review of this product go over to DC Rainmaker who reviews everything in more depth than you will find anywhere else.
Stay tuned for pointless bragging about miles and chat about splits. None of which will actually be in any way impressive. Also, suggestions of weirdest Half or Full Marathons please – am contemplating the Midnight Sun Run in Iceland… can anyone top that?
