Fuckin' eh! Sub 16 hour and 7th overall on top of his 8th (I think) at UTMF and it's a pretty good year for the guy. But what does he bench?

Found out today that one of the project managers at my work is a 3 hour 20 marathon runner and her husband has completed the Hawaiian Ironman. Shame I found out on my last day

Turmeric & Curcumin are getting a good rep for that at the moment too.

I'm also seeing a lot of new information suggesting that antiinflammatory procedures & supplements work against the adaptation response that training requires.

No, mostly discussions on podcasts. I'll see if they link to anything on any of the transcripts though.

On the weekend I discovered some sweet trail running almost straight out my front door. I'm pretty psyched about that.

So what is the 620 like Luke, my 405 is almost 4 years old now. Might be time for an upgrade.

I've read that the 620 isn't very accurate in relation to most others including the 220. The GF has one of those and it seems to do everything you'd need.

Not really a compelling argument for me to move from a 405 to a 220 though, it's got some cool feature but probably not enough. Should probably buy a cot or something.

Loving it so far. Gets satellite sync much faster than my 610 and being able to sync to my phone via Bluetooth is really handy. Haven't noticed any issue with accuracy, but I haven't taken it out on to any trails or under heavy foliage yet.

Unless you want a touchscreen, the 220 is cheaper and does most stuff the 620 does in a lighter package.

So got the MRI results back. Looks like I've got some bits of loose cartilage floating around in my knee.

Off to see a surgeon now to see if it needs to be cut out.

There goes any sportsball for me for a while

Balls.

Do you a suggestion for a surgeon? A friend is a anaesthetist and knows who's who in the zoo. He'll happily write a referal also.

Thanks, I've already got an appointment with a surgeon who seems to check out pretty well, but if I'm not happy with him I'll shout out!

I've started using Tailwind for my long runs and can highly recommend it. The longest I've done so far is only 2:40, but it's a lot better than forcing down gels. They do a trial pack for not very much too.

What flavours have you tried? Caffeinated raspberry sounds like something that I would enjoy.
