Next big idea?

Check out this BBC Report on a new invention for swimmers.

Come on Polar, come on Garmin.

Come on Oakley maybe...

    Been done on the Tri forum :-)
  • Why do they have to be quicker than me at EVERYTHING?!
  • Oh. It was you yourself Muttley.

    Not may others there seeing the awesome gadgetness potential of this idea though...some poor soul even suggesting a mechanical clicker was a good way to count laps in a pool.

    Clearly the shades, hrm, gps bit is essential. Maybe a virtual partner could be added. Choose a Paula Radcliffe visual to be running at the pace you want.

    Substitute anyone else for Paula of course...would we run better keeping a visual of Beyonce for example just in front of us...?
  • couldn't run at all with a vision of Beyonce just in front of me.

    ... not in my usual lycra shorts, anyway...

    I spent some of the Reading Half Marathon with the Cheeky Girls just ahead of me. They were going a lot slower than me, but it took me a while to overtake. Cheeky indeed :-)

    One day I'll be fast enough to get a glimpse of Nell McAndrew :-(
