Westley Road & Risbygate Street Circular Run Bury St Edmunds

6pm 5.6 miles in 45 minutes 30 seconds.

Year to date mileage 985

Month to date 35 miles

Average miles per month 107

Average weekly rate 24.6

Weather: Dry & mild.

Ran a circular run which includes a section where I have measured to be a mile from the Newmarket Road to the Falcon Pub. I didn't push to hard any comfortably ran the 1st mile in 7.53 and the second in 7.55. The rest of the run was a similar pace probably just over 8 minute miles.

I am still looking at buying an MP 3 player so any recommendations are welcomed. I want a player specifically just for running. At the moment I am considering the PHILIPS PSA615 6GB MP3. Although this has a hard disc it seems to be made purposely for runners in mind as it includes a shock lock mode to prevent the hard disc from moving. It also has a talking stop watch, not sure about that feature but it does have capacity to store up to 3000 songs.

Other than this it seems there is a choice of an Apple I-Pod - these are the most popular but do have hard discs and although skip free there seems to be some horror stories on the web where people have been unlucky and the disc has broken.

Or going for something much cheaper that has capacity for just 30-40 songs 128 mb players

Any suggestions anyone???


  1. About half a gig in a cheapo flash player would be right for me.

    Having said that, I find running interesting enough without extras.

  2. True ive survived without an mp3 the last year and it is one less thing to worry about but... its a long winter and I think it will act as a spur to run more often and faster!

    Cheers Matt
