Comments: With the new Garmin in hand I went out. I set it to beep at me every 5 and then 1 minute. Run 5, walk 1. I am pretty sure I can do that with my old Garmin too, but never tried it. Other than it had problems picking up a signal (downtown), like the old one, it worked really well and doesn’t feel as bulky as the other one did. Regular wrist strap or velco strap, I am not sure which one I like better yet. The old Garmin had the velco strap and I miss it. Perhaps that’s only because I am so used to it.
The run overall went well…I only had minor issues with snow, the sun was out, I was listening to a new book (on tape), and I think the new Garmin made me push myself a little bit. I am looking forward to my long run on Saturday/Sunday (not sure which day I’ll do it yet). I’ll try to get some weightlifting in tomorrow, but I have to run to the PO at lunch, so we’ll see.
