So… despite starting this blog so I wouldn’t get obsessed with times and figures, and despite proudly (smugly?) saying that I don’t own a Garmin, and I’m just doing it for the love of it… I received an early birthday present today, and I’m SO EXCITED!
I need at least a whole weekend to sit down and geek my way round the instructions, so any tips would be appreciated.
I’ve been having a few technical hitches recently, so the timing is good! My iPod has started reading under distance (I thought I’d done a 10K run last week, and it was only 9 and a half according to gmap. Not a BIG thing, but annoying….), and it’s suddenly started conking out partway through a run. I’m going to have to get it sorted, as Ilike to have music when I run… but it’ll be great to be able to be a total nerd about distances/ times again….
Had a lovely run this morning (pre-Garmin) with Kate. Did a couple of miles before meeting her, ran with her for 3 miles, then ran home. Only ended up doing just over 6 miles, but that’s okay. I left the house late, as I was delayed for various reasons, and these things happen.
Okay.. off to bury my head in the manual/ website. Preparing to reach new heights of total geeky obsessiveness….
