    Ok thanks. I'm a big Garmin fan but with the recent change to GC and the associated problems I'm seriously considering a Suunto instead.

    @Dammit, from your posts I'm thinking you're not a huge fan of the Fenix2?

    Was thinking about getting one when my Forerunner packs up, but you seem to be having a fair few issues.

    It's got a shark on it.

    To be honest, it's the first time I've ever run a road half so I didn't really know what to expect (always raced off road) so I just wanted to go under 90 but as close to 80 as I could.

    I set off a bit quick, ran a 6:02, then a 6:03 the first two miles. I'm very happy with 1:25, it just would have been a lot nicer to run an even 6:30 pace the whole way rather than what I did!

    I'd like to take a few minutes off at Maidenhead in two weeks (very flat by all accounts), then I need to ramp up the miles for Beachy Head Marathon again!

    I quite fancy Snowdon one year, I take it you'd recommend it?

    Ah you can't have been far behind me! I finished in 1:25:25, so you could probably see me crawling over the bridge on that long downhill stretch haha.

    Two and a half minutes off your PB is big, congrats!

    Really well organised, hope it carries on in future, great event.

    That was quite outstanding.

    Anyone else run the Severn Bridge half this morning?

    I went off far too fast (first 3 miles were a big 5k PR, the stupidity) which I thought I'd stopped doing, and faded big time. Still good fun though, and you get to run on a closed motorway bridge. Would recommend.

    After the aforementioned debacle, I'm going to use the 220 as a phone for taking riding, as the Acer I upgraded too is massive and I don't fancy having it in my jersey pocket.

    Is there an accepted best/cheapest PAYG sim deal or are they all much of a muchness? Would only be used in emergencies out on rides so I'm not going to go through tons of minutes. It comes with a very limited browser so some kind of internet would be useful but not necessary.

    I've not been in Bristol all that long, but it seems to me that because there are a lot of shared bike/walk paths that people think they can just cycle on any footpath.
