Mileage, Gas & GPS watches - oy vey

These are a few things I experienced today.

1) I put in mileage as part of my training. Aimed for 3.5 miles, lost steam so only went 2.71. I also haven't gotten any faster since last week. That makes me sad. I'm trying to find solace in the fact that I'm doing morning runs around my neighborhood which is very hilly. Also, I went slowwwwly on the downhill runs because I don't want to blow my fat little knees.

2) Gas. Hmmmm...let's just say I have probably been consuming too much dairy. Boohoo.

NOW for some fun stuff!

3) I picked up a little toy for myself - I'm so excited! It is literally a wristheld watch-like GPS system! It tracks my running pace, mileage, elevation, heart rate and calories burned. I figure that it's an investment in my 10k, half marathon and marathon training. The more $$ I spend, the more vested I become, and hopefully the more committed I'll be. Kisses kisses to my Garmin Forerunner 305:


















Now that I've bored the hell out of you - here's the fun stuff! Thanks to the Sparky Marathoners and Runners for the guiding me to the following words of wisdom. Please vote on your favorite:

For the sake of argument, I liked 11, 13, 14, and 15. That could just be because AF is coming to visit next week though. ;)

I like your new gadget! :)
