Also, some questions about how to get the HR monitor to read correctly. I recently have been having some issues early in my runs (1st 1/2 mile or so). I just use spit, but found that tightening my strap eliminated my issues (I think it gradually loosens over the months).
Also, just a plug for the Garmin 910XT. I absolutely love this watch. The only catch is it's $$$ and doesn't really give a reliable instantaneous pace (but very good lap pace). But I don't use the instant pace anyways. In case anyone is looking for a new watch, running warehouse is having a 25% off sale now http://www.runningwarehouse.com/catpage-GAR25OFF.html
Andi - congrats on the 5k run - especially with the hills and wind!! Sounds like things are improving well for you. Imagine how fast you could go if you ditched the cigs - you'd be unstoppable!!
BeDe - thanks for the words of encouragement. I wasn't too upset, I just found it funny that I couldn't manage it at all without my HR bouncing around all over the place. I'm going to try again in a couple of days so I'll try and pace myself a bit better and see how it goes. I hope you made it through security okay and best wishes for your recovery!
20 miles done for me today so I'm off for a well-earned beer!
Txs RR, If I where to quit smoking (a big if right now) what do you reckon it would do to my times? 1 min/mile off? Well done on the 20 miler!
Started packing today so didn't go out in the end though plan to get out and do 11 miles tomorrow Will save my 30 mile week for another time.
Oh, and VT, not long had my 910xt but think I'm gonna like it. Got it as a Birthday Present when I realised my 405 wasn't going to last my 5 hour Marathon time
