In the Silence
In the Silence
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Fleet Foxes or Bon Iver?, 28 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In the Silence (MP3 Download)
If you do, Asgeir will not disappoint. 'In the silence' is part folk with an electronic twist thrown in for good measure ('King and Cross' is a great example).My favorite track is 'Was There Nothing?' although I also love 'Head in the Snow' with its strangely 'trippy' beat.
This is my first experience of Asgeir and it certainly wont be the last. A great album

3.0 out of 5 stars Some useful tips, 7 Aug 2013

Practical help and advice but does gloss over some of the detail about breaking bad habits. Needs more depth to get 5 stars

Read a few of the Harry Hole series and picked this out as a holiday read. Gripping stuff. Understand why it made it to the screen

5.0 out of 5 stars Great item at a great price, 19 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Timex Marathon GPS Watch (Sports)
I used to have a Garmin 205 which was more of a wrist worn computer with every feature going, many of which I never used. The Timex is a great product in that it delivers all the essential running features whilst doubling up as a decent sportswatch when in non GPS mode. It lacks the ability to plug in and sync data via a USB but at this price manually entering data into your training log is a small price to pay

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple but sound advice, 6 May 2013

Some great hints and tips to keep you fit and healthy. Practical pointers rather than sports science which makes for an easier read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lacks focus and direction, 23 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I must confess I gave up on this after 70 pages. The author spends a lot of time introducing concepts and then dismissing them and I began to lose patience. Its a shame because the idea of 20 minute workouts is one that will appeal to a lot of people who are getting back to fitness but they will have to wade through a lot of rambling theory and conjecture in this book which may deter them from starting out on the journey.

2.0 out of 5 stars More money for less features, 26 July 2011
Having owned a Garmin 205, the 110's design and size appealed to me. However, with the 110, functionality has been severely compromised. There are a whole host of workouts and intervals that the 205 offers which the 110 doesnt and if you are a runner who is keen to monitor progress and keen to get more out of your training then you will feel limited by this particular GPS watch. I have purchased a 205 from Amazon which arrived today and I am releived to have it back. Its cheaper and better and I think overall Garmin really scrimped on the 110


The 5-Minute Plantar Fasciitis Solution

3.0 out of 5 stars Some useful info but at an expensive price, 9 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This guide certainly provides a 'concise' view of the causes of plantar fasciitis together with suggested treatment and aftercare options. However, the content, or lack of it, does not justify the high price of this item. The exercises suggested are useful but overall, there are many aspects of this book that are covered in other publications at a fraction of the cost

4.0 out of 5 stars Good player but no clip supplied..., 14 Mar 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No this is not a problem with the seller.

This is a great player but UK versions are only supplied by Sony with the armband which is great when I am runing but a pain when I am at rest. If anybody knows where these can be sourced (cant find on this site) I would love to know.

The G sensor is a great feature and has proved fairly accurate so far. The controls are well designed and easy to use, the hold function keeps things locked off when you are at top speed.

Great sound and with a clothing clip supplied,I woul have no hesitation in giving 5 out of 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best running headphones I have come across, 9 Mar 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At last, sports headphones that deliver. Great sound and much less 'noise pollution' from my Gym's blaring speaker system. The fit is good and you dont get that sense that the headphones are working their way out of your ear as you run as was the case with the Sony headphones I was using.

Worth spending the extra on.
