8/22 Garmin Data

I love my Forerunner 305. Here are the stats from yesterday's 18 miler...you can see my 7 miles at marathon-pace (10mm) or a bit faster. Yeah, I'm pokey, but those miles felt so strong. By the end of my run I was not gassed. It was excellent.

One of these days I need to mess with the heart-rate monitor. I've had my Garmin for almost 2 years and haven't once used the HRM that came with it. It's just data that I don't really have need for...I know I'm running beyond my abilities when my asthma kicks-in...nevermind heart rate. I know I'm running easy when I can talk with a friend or sing a song. But I am curious to see what my heart is doing on a run with some pace miles thrown-in. My biggest concern is the very real potential for chafing. I am not exactly small-chested and am not sure how compatible underwired, heavy-duty sports bra and HRM strap would be...


  1. Awesome splits on the 18 miler. You went out easy and got stronger on the 2nd half...that's great!

    I just did a 15 miler today - and it must have been my first 30 mile week since last year's marathon training....I'm beat!

    Good luck!

  2. Thanks! Now I just hope race day in 2 months goes so well!

  3. Wow - you are really improving in speed! Keep up the great work!!

    I'm interested to see how you do with the HRM. I think if I used one it would beep it's warning all the time, since I have to run 14 minute miles just to be able to talk comfortably. And forget singing. That just doesn't work when I run. :)
