    send my request, never used Strava, but I have signed up and I have managed to link my elderly Microsoft Band 2 watch to Strava, hopefully it will sync later.

    I must admit I do need a bit of motivation over the winter months.

    Cheers

    Not bad, 10 members overnight so hopefully it’ll motivate us all at any level, the Cycling Club always goes quiet in the winter months so hopefully this will maintain an all round year fitness boost for all

    I’ll be propping up the leaderboard
    - but looks like I’ll have to enter my runs manually - not sure my Fitbit will sync with strava?

    I”ll join, but, have you worked out how it sinks with Fitbit?

    Will sign up when I get a moment

    20km a week is my target

    I've requested to join but struggling with my knee at the moment so might not contribute much for a while. Hoping to do the Goring 10k next March but we'll see how the knee goes.

    All approved. Matters not what you do just great to have you part of the team.

    Joined, hoping to keep up my 30-40K weekly distance, so visibility will keep me motivated.

    For those struggling with Strava imports would recommend RunGap app, which imports Apple, Nike, FiitBit, Garmin etc into Strava easily. Saves me having to carry phone with me, as I like running light and have an older non GPS Apple Watch

    I’m happy to be an admin if you are OK with that? I log into Strava a few times a day normally

    I did think about joining this but prefer to keep my Strava profile locked down as much as possible. I'd encourage all of you to take a look at your privacy settings as, for example with some of the running maps, it mightn't be too difficult to work out where you live. In any case, have fun.

    Nobody else now needs to worry about being the slowest/crappest (and I won't worry too much about it either).

    You can set privacy zones based on postcodes on your account with varying radius' (radii?) to avoid letting people know where you live. it's had some teething troubles but seems to work on my account when I view flybys

    Oops…. I used Strava for the first time today and also used Fitbit (which id synced with Strava). It appears to have logged my run twice so I’ve shot up the leaderboard - needs 7km deleting from it…

    I like the elevation thing - apparently I ran up 67m

    Soz!

    I like the idea of this and I use Strava already.

    Is there a way though of making member's activities only visible to others in the group, or does it have to be viewable by everyone?

    I see we have another triathlete who from his Strava clubs has done Ironman as well as Human Race events. As I don't know his TZ name,can he please drop me a PM so we can say "hi".

    Thanks

    Its all in your personal Strava settings, setting a privacy zone means the part of your run where you start and finish is blocked to all but you also

    Long story but I have unfortunately just applied for and received a place in the Berlin marathon! So now I need to go and buy some running shoes and get some motivation going. Hope my application is accepted!

    After years of running the last 18 months have been a bit dormant and I need something to get my mo-jo back.

    Don’t expect too much this side of Christmas but 2019 I will get going.

    Excellent idea and ta

    Through the Strava app… sync with smart watch

    It was quite straightforward

    I spent the weekend decorating, so, didn’t get out for a run :-(

    Will aim for 3 runs this week

    No rhyme or reason…. I’ve slept terribly ( I never get insomnia) and feel generally exhausted…. Hauled myself out at lunch, whilst giving myself every reason to not bother, and I ran a seasons best - 5km @ 5.24km pace (a nudge over 27 mins)

    Still want to get back to my pre injury 25min pace, but, that’ll take some time…

    Feel exhausted again now :-(

    Ps…. Who’s this David bloke…. He’s making us all look bad!!!

    I must admit i've only been out twice since I joined the group, mostly because yesterday morning I was still a little 'sensitive' from my works night out on Saturday

    I'm probably not as competitive or have the pace of other runners in the group but I do try to get out regularly, just to get myself a little fitter - I'll get out in the morning I promise!

    Looking at some maps it appears I literally cross paths with a member here - run very similar routes - how funny 😁

    Anyone else had a “follow request “ from Debbie Landry ? I clicked on her profile and the opening comment was “ nice, i’m a doctor and I want sex” with a web link.

    Half marathon completed this morning in just under 1 hour 50 minutes - first time above 12k for me in 10 weeks and it was good to find out the legs and mind still has it in them to do a half

    Well done and an excellent time.

    Did 5.8km this morning and the struggle was real, legs felt like they had lead balloons tied to them.
    Think all the Christmas food and drink caught up with me today.

    Thanks - this year has been great

    Another 19km and I will have completed 600km since June having never really ran before

    I’ve lost 4.5 stone through diet and exercise

    Alongside that I’ve managed the times below as PB’s

    5k - 21.28 (haven’t tried to PB since August)
    10k - 43.34
    Half - 1.39.01

    Target for next year is to run 1000 miles, do my first marathon and circa 2-4 half marathons

    Well done to all those getting out…. Managed a very gentle 5.5km after suffering from a sore back…. Had big plans to do lots of runs, but, wasn’t to be…. Will build it up a little next week!

    Back up to 10km today.

    That’s probably about 1 mince pie I’ve burned off.
