    Kipchoge just ran a marathon in 1:59:40, absolutely incredible.

    Exciting

    Terence Baker: Eliud Kipchoge obviously is superb, probably the best, but as someone whoís run 23 marathons, one in 2:44:56, Iíll be celebrating a sub-2 hour marathon when someone does it in open competition; plus, every time someone gets faster, my percentile performances goes down.
    What a miserable bell-end.

    Terence should get off his ass and show us how it's done if it's that easy.

    Open competition wasn't the point of this event. Roger Bannister's four minute mile was under controlled conditions too. It was still a major achievement in sport. Terence doesn't seem to understand the point of today's sporting event.

    What an achievement by Kipchoge indeed! Props to the team of pacemakers that supported him as well.

    That's insane. I can't even conceive that speed over that distance. Nuts.

    Cold! :lol:

    I enjoyed this one. Was able to keep a consistent pace for the whole thing and it didn't actually feel that hard. Want to tackle a full marathon next. Need to not be too lax on the training over the upcoming festive period. :D

    Nice one man that's brilliant. Go for it! Got one in mind? I know what you mean. It's tough... So dark and bloody cold. I'm just back from the running shop, treated myself to a new pair of running gloves. it's the bloody wind on my fingers that gets me over winter!

    Had a quick look around but doesn't appear to be anything near to me (London) for a couple of months. Probably just need to look harder.

    I don't think there will be much in the way of UK marathons now before early spring... May be wrong though! I've got my eye on Edinburgh in May then the Loch Ness one again in October. I want to finish it this time without feeling like utter shite.

    Whatís the best running watch for (significantly) under £100? I donít need heart rate stuff, just solid GPS. I have an old Forerunner 110 that is perfect... once it finds the satellites, which it sometimes doesnít at all.

    FR35?

    Just under a ton on amazon.

    I have had a couple of forerunners 220 & 235 and really like them.

    The missus has a 35 and really likes it.

    I use a 35, does everything I need it to. Can take a while to find signal though. When It breaks Iíll get a 25 as I donít bother with heart rate, all I want is the gps data to plug into strava

    The 35 takes a while to find a signal? Thatís disappointing, was hoping that would be a thing of the past. The 30 looks a decent bet, stripped back 35 but newer, so maybe the GPS tech has come on a bit?

    I use a 30 and it's fine, but it can take a while to find GPS and there are sessions that I've ended up waiting nearly ten minutes and then just headed out without it.

    Battery life is a bit poo as well. After 2 years it doesn't hold full charge and it's also frozen on a few occasions.

    All that aside, it is generally still a decent piece of kit.

    I've just ordered a FR45 to replace it, so I'll see how I get on with that.

    Disappointing that thatís still an issue. I mean I know these are at the budget end of the scale but still. Makes me think l should just stick with the ancient 110 as thatís really my only issue with it.

    How much did you find the 45 for wunty?

    It was £140 from John Lewis online, which I thought was alright. If I get a couple of years out of it for that it's decent enough.
