I was so excited on my way to get my new Garmin Forerunner 305!-This was me being excited. I swear
I could hardly wait to get home to open this sucker up!
I got it out of the box and had no idea what half of the stuff was for......I looked in the book and saw that it had to charge for 3 whole hours before I could use it! I read the book and by the time it was charged I set my profile and set the laps to the km setting.
This thing is huge (that's what she said).........
And off I went!-At first I was thinking it was cool out since it had rained all day.....Nope.....HUMID....I was sweating like no one business.
Ok-So new things on this run that WILL never be repeated-I carried that stupid water bottle with me! Couldn't find my regular one-I will be getting a new one-Tomorrow! I also drank a whole bottle of G2 about an hour before my run-Dumb-Just sayin' I had the WORST side stitch ever.....sucked-=And I had no music as I was going out the door I saw my MP3 was dead and said screw it! Just one of those days....I wasn't feeling it and normally I would have just taken it kinda easy on the 8k run-But since I had the Garmin I didn't want my pace too low. I was averaging about 5:15 km (8:20something miles) Not great but not terrible-Long story short I wanted to throw up!
My neighbours think I am nuts already so laying on my front lawn and taking my own picture is totally fine-They don't even flinch at things like this anymore.....Whatever-They are weird too.....
Final time8km (5 miles)-42:15-bah
I have some work to do if I am gonna go a 50 min 10k in 2 weeks.
I was pretty excited for dinner-
Massive salad included
Salad mix, avocado, tomato, cucumber, green beans, feta, chick peas-
Greek yogurt, rice wine vinegar, lemon juice, honey and poppy seeds.....
No I am just trying to figure out how to display my Gramin results on the blog like I see others do -But I DO.NOT.GET.IT! If anyone knows how that would be great!
