Gotta agree with Zacnici...
I too am racing in Wimbleball this week and was gutted to read the recent reports of the Schwalbe tearing apart because of a manufacturing problem....
Am considering getting others fitted on Thursday and 'wearing' them in a wee bit on the turbo before Sunday...would be gutted if my tyre completely shat it after all my hard work.

Gotta agree with Juleso, I went to SFT and they are amazing...I did a series of 6 endless pool sessions over about 10 months and my technique has improved dramatically..which can be seen by viewing the dvd you get of each session. I was seriously drowning when I first started but not i can usually get from one end of the pool to the either in about 15 -16 strokes...it used to take me about 25!

I have the Polar rs200sd which costs a bit more than than the RS200 because it comes with a foot pod for speed and distance info...however I wasn't verly impressed with the quality of data you could extract from it. I have since bought a garmin 305 as they are much cheaper then the shiny new 405. YES the 305 looks like you are sporting a housebrick on your wrist but I think its fantastic and as tri-tri-again pointed out they are going for a lot less than other GPS enabled models. The quality of data you can gather is very impressive.
The only problem about the garmin is you cant swim with it on (well you can...but the water resistant rating aint great and I wouldn't risk it). I use the polar for lap times in the pool and thats about it now (chest strap doesn't work so well in water apparently..although have never tried it!), so as long as you buy a cheap waterproof watch for the pool the 305 should satisfy all your running needs...oh and its handy if you get lost on the bike because you can retrace your route on the map function

I'll be there with bells on (they will of course be red)..which may explain my increased drag and crap time...

Alternatively you can choose a bike store with a 'flexible approach' to the cycle to work scheme. When you get your cheque for the bike originally quoted (sub £1000) you can then use it toward a bike of any value...ahem...apparently.

Time and HR, that's what all the books that I have read suggest and I'm too inexperienced to know better!

40 mile spin on the bike around Surrey in prep for the Legs of Steel and the Orca in Windsor..bloody lovely day and chucked in a couple of nasty hills at the end for good measure... about to do core stuff and stretch my ITB till it goes ping!

Orca Classic Sprint 14th September is the only event I have entered since London although might turn up for the 27th Aug race at Dorney as well.
Am planning to do the Orca Classic Sprint on the 14th of September and am considering the F3 aswell...still haven't lost my tri cherry as they turned Worthing Tri into a Duathlon because of hazardous seas...not impressed!

What about a Felt B2 at TFN, use the discount card that came with 220 and you'll pick it up for £2250.....
