I also had to "free" run it since the old Garmin FR305 refused to start up but it is nice to just get up there and run by feel. I was however not with out data collection, I started the Endomondo app on my iPhone and put it in my runners belt. But sitting there in the belt I have no real access to it to check time and pace etc. I just had my every day watch to check for the approximate time.When you don't have to check the GPS all the time for the right pace/HR/distance you can get more in tune with your form and fix any problems there. Also since I was running trails rather than roads it is easier to connect with nature and notice that fuzzy caterpillar crawling across the trail.
|Anyhoo here is the screenshot from Endomondo|
After getting the dog walked and taking a shower we went to lunch with some friends at the local Pizza place and having spent some 1400 cal I could enjoy a salami pizza which is always a good choice for me.
After the nice lunch we we shopping for new furniture for our new place. That is so hard with all the choices that are out there and somewhat different preferences....also the patience of 3 and 6 year olds is somewhat limited. But all in all a good day.
PS! The FR305 decided to start today after a 36 hour strike. Let's hope it start on tuesday (or when the next run is) or I'll have to get a new one.
