MF - I did wear a Garmin but I didn't look at it, but that's mainly because it's impossible to do even splits on that course.
Also, my own Garmin (305) is on its last legs now as the battery doesn't hold its charge. So I was using Claire's Garmin (405) for the first time. It's quite different to use and when I pressed 'start' I remembered she had it set to Kms, so that's no good for me anyway, so I didn't look at it again. KK gave me a link ages ago in how to replace a 305 battery so I'll look at that, but at least I have a back up for the longer runs. Strangely, I don't want to erase Claire's data though....It's got her 10K PB time on there. I'll have to save it somewhere.
I did 6.5 miles in the afternoon too as I had an hour to kill. I just took it very steady and enjoyed it. I think that's my first 'double', but I won't be making a habit of it.
I'm running this morning and then travelling to Bristol with friends to watch some cricket. One of them is cooking a massive roast afterwards and she's a damn fine cook, so I couldn't resist
MF - I hope the shoulder gets better quickly. Are you running with it in a sling then?
