50 days to go!
Got up bright and early to get my run done before
Mark had to leave at 6:30.
Also so I could try out my new toy here...
I left a little late because, in my sleepy state,
it took me a while to set up the AutoLap function.
Turns out this little (big) guy makes me run too fast.
At least today it did.
I had to go kind of fast because of leaving late-
but I went too much.
I just wanted to see what this GPS watch could do :).
Yes, I realize now that I can see what it does while
also not going faster than I should have.
Did I mention it was early?
I found myself looking at the watch ALL the time-
wanting to know my pace, miles done, etc.
It was dark, so I had to push a button to turn on the back light.
Love that I can stop/start the watch when I am at a stoplight.
The size of the watch didn't bother me at all.
I was mildly concerned about that.
What I love love is the read out it transfers to my computer
when I plug it in after the run...
The blue line is pace and the green line is elevation.
You can see the spikes up in the blue line when I
lost the satellite signal for a second.
I like being able to see the elevation.
I can even just look at the elevation for certain miles (laps).
This is the lap where I ran up 6700 W. by our stake center...
Nice hill, huh?
It's really not a long hill- just very steep!
The AutoLap is nice because then I can get a
read out of my average pace per mile...
See what I mean about maybe going too fast for a training run... well, too fast for me.
So my initial review is that I love this thing!
Only one run has been done with it
but I think it will help me maintain a steadier pace.
Even though it didn't today :).
