Hi all

Last year, I bought a Garmin Forerunner 230 watch and, until recently, it has been working just fine.

I'm now having problems copying the data from the watch to the Garmin Connect service, both when I use the app on my iPhone via Bluetooth and connecting the watch to my computer via a cable.

The watch beeps and says "Transfer Complete" yet no runs since April 14th are showing on the app or website.

Has anyone encountered this problem before? I've heard and read all sorts of negative reviews about Garmin Connect.

Hi both - two very different answers there but both welcome. Maybe I'll aim somewhere between the two.

I think I will need to have at least some time buffer on the day though, even only to keep my morale up.

Hi all

I'm doing my first full Ironman distance triathlon next summer (Ironman UK in Bolton). Like most first timers, I imagine, my only goal is to finish within the cut off.

How much training should I do? What level is too much and what is too little? Essentially, I'm asking what can I "get away" with (not) doing between now and next July.

I did my one and only half Ironman in Weymouth in September and finished just 25 minutes inside the cut off.

Hi all   I'm planning on doing my first ever 70.3/middle distance triathlon (call it what you wish) in summer 2017 and was after some head-to-head opinions on the Ironman 70.3 in Staffordshire vs Outlaw Half in Nottingham.   Like the 2016 versions, I expect next summer's events will take place just a couple of weeks apart so doing them both isn't really an option.   I'm also open to other suggestions, preferably in the West or East Midlands.   All thoughts welcome   Thanks see conversation
