I have the them, perfect for both. Size up 1/2 or a full size if you have wider feet

anyone else using the garmin find it shit at picking up a satellite, my last 2 runs it has refused to pick locate one before my run (given it a good 10 mins) so I had to start with just a timer,which is annoying, today it did not pick up a satellite till 22mins in to my run,meaning distance is totally skewed.
building up to 15k now did 13.3 today in 1.18 so finally getting under the hour mark on 10k as well

I find my Forerunner F10 takes a couple of minutes, but most of the time I don't notice it as I spend this time warming up.
Though, I have found if you leave the watch on instead of switching it off after every use, it finds your GPS location a lot quicker the next time around.

Didn't pick up a satellite in 22 mins? Update firmware or return the watch. Always turn it on, hang it on the door handle of front door, put on shoes and it's got satellite once im out the door.

Sweet personal best, good incline. I'm planning on falling out of an aeroplane to better my pb in speed and climb, just hope it's not raining.

I'm not a runner mate just quite happy with my time

It's a good time, just saying theres a big difference between actually running outdoors and doing a pb on a treadmill in a gym. Add 1% incline just to compensate for air resistance and then one or more percents to compensate for actual climb on a track (if youre not just running intervals or something on a totally flat surface), one percent might not sound much but theres a huge difference in time even on a 5k.

Lots of treadmills are also pretty generous even at some incline. It's good business.

That's great stuff, Rick. Treadmill or not, that's a blinding time for someone who's carrying a bit of timber, pal. Are you gonna keep up with the gym work in an effort to lose a bit of the weight that you're carrying or is this just a bit of training for the one off 5k?

You'll always push yourself a bit harder on the actual race day as well

ran my best 10k mid week at 54mins so slowly chipping away and starting to feel a difference now in that I can keep a pace and even increase pace towards final third of a run, where as pre christmas I had nothing towards the end of a longer run. 15k tomorrow is goal somewhere under 1.5 hours

Fair play rick! Don't know how people can handle running outside on this weather!
