3.0 out of 5 stars For proper runners, 20 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite trying to incorporate beginners, this is aimed at mid to higher level runners, which I think it does well.

Author obviously a good trainer but he starts to grate a bit - you feel he still harbours a bit of a grudge as he was amongst many great runners but didn't rise to the level of acclaim that Bedford and Ovett, for example, rose to. I reckon he was a really good runner but has found his niche as a trainer - he should celebrate that rather than pine for what could have happened.

Look at Fergie - really average as a player but blossomed in management

I also don't think you would take on board absolutely everything he says (totally impractical unless you have all day to train) - you'll find yourself cherry-picking the bits that you can realistically use in your running

Simple HRM - no fuss, whistles or bells - just gives heart rate, average and maximum hr + amount of time exercised.
A lot better than the 2 polars I've had which constantly froze or gave ridiculous readings

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple & It Works, 20 July 2012
Clue is in the title - needed something to play an ipod in the car without reams of wires and associated guff. This fits the bill perfectly and doesn't cost a fortune

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product For Normal People, 26 Oct 2011

If you are one of the many out there who, like me, need to get out there and shuffle a bit to keep yourself from seizing up and you want to know basic things like - how hard am I working - how long have I been running : then this is the ideal product for you. (If you need to know your Global Positioning as you run up a Chilean mountain, then you're a lunatic and need one of the £400 fancydan HRMs)

This is a solid, comfortable (the strap) piece of kit which has a myriad of information on it, and I must confess I don't use most of it e.g it tells you what zone your in - I think most folk who buy a HRM will be able to recite in parrot fashion what the 60/70/80/90% of their maximum is - but hey, it's a nice touch.

What I did find myself using was the lapping facility - I ran/shuffled 3 miles around a local school running track and used the lap split - it was fun to see that because I was running at 70% of max, the laps at the end of the run were quicker . . . . spooky!

Anyhoo - an excellent product at a sensible price - thoroughly recommended


The God Delusion
The God Delusion

5.0 out of 5 stars At last . ., 12 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The God Delusion (Paperback)
Finally, a book that puts in very clear and concise English, what many people have thought for years. Those of us brought up in our parents religion (Catholicism for me) who always just paid lip service to all the ceremonial nonsense because we didn't want to offend our parents - well this book is for all you people.

Read it !

Great book - Hitchens lets rip at all religion. Pick holes in it all you want (as previous reviewers have tried to do) but deep down, you know he's right !!

This, with Dawkins' God Delusion should be compulsory reading in religous lessons.

Go Hitch !
