Lurking no more!
Very busy weekend.
Garmin arrived Friday, very impressive, unlike my running. Went out early this morning but didn't feel right from start. Was attempting 7 miles but had to give up about half way, just couldn't carry on. Really dented my confidence ahead of supposedly going to the club on Tuesday and a 7 mile race next Sunday
The battery lasts about ten hours and the satellite lock on was really quick yesterday, maybe 30 seconds from turning it on. Not sure what kind of area is best to live in, mine is average, its not totally rural but its not exactly Manhattan either. The download from watch to computer is simple. The Garmin website is much better than the bundled software. Still learning about the watch but the options are great and the wealth of data it creates is amazing. I studied Friday's good 4 mile run intently but have yet to look at yesterdays disaster
Stripes, sorry to hear you've had a rubbish run and it has dented your confidence. I hope you have a brilliant run with the club to offset it. I'm not running enough for a Garmin but it sounds brilliant.
Silver your run sounds lovely, I'm looking forward to getting to the stage when 5k is gentle!
I got out for a run this afternoon, it was really good. A 2.5km loop through the park and alongside the river. I really enjoyed it so I may have found my groove again. I hope so.
Hi Mal and Silver, well done on your runs.
Just got back from a great gig, saw Steve Earle at the Symphony Hall in Birmingham.
Finally uploaded the run from Sunday and think I may have gone off too fast again, hoping that if I do go tomorrow I will find it easier running with others.
Club run went well. Did about six miles with a couple of stops. Enjoyed running with other people. Spoke to a few of them and will definitely be going back. Glad I have done it and also that I have laid Sunday to rest.
Now got next race this weekend to worry about
Didn't use the Garmin, thought I would look a bit of a plonker first time there but lots of people had them. Will use it next week when I go. I'm getting the money for it as a birthday present so I shouldn't really be using it for 3 weeks until I hit the big four zero
There were lots of people there, between 30-40 I would guess. The stopping and starting was a bit of a shock to the system but I am sure I will get used to it. That is another thing that the Garmin can cope with, apparently you can set it so that it cuts out the time you have stopped without you having to turn it on and off again.
Glad you are enjoying your running again. You have got to try a race now. You will get nagged until you do, especially when Booey gets back
Hi I am back did you miss me
I am mad mad busy at work as expected so its a quick hello and I will have to chat more tomorrow
I had a great time away although the running plan didnt come together, we had a fair bit of rain and it just didn't happen but hey hoo
Hopefully can get away 4.30ish to make running club tonight at 5.15
Not had time to read back yet catch up 2moz *waves*
Hi Booey, nice to have you back. Hope the weekend was good despite the weather.
Silver, it looks like a good race but only you know if you are ready to go that far. Personally I wouldn't but I am always looking on the bleak side. Its not until 13th so you have got 11 days to prepare
