Blog Neglect and random thoughts

I am so behind on updating my blog. So much so that I have not even added my weekly exercise from last week! I can't do it right now since I am at work and my log is at home. Booo.

I know I have said it before, but I really need to give my blog an overhaul. It's so boring and just plain blah. I can't seem to find the time or patience to do so. I do promise to update more. I start marathon training on Monday so ideally I'd like to post daily, if not daily then every other day. I am taking on a tougher training program and with a BQ goal, I'd like to document as much of my training as possible.

I have a half marathon on Sunday. My dad wants me to run with him since he is also registered for the same race. I am not so sure I will be able to hang. I, for one, do not want him to run at a slower pace just to stay with me. That is what he would have to do because I highly doubt I can maintain his pace for all 13.1 miles. I will see him at the race expo on Saturday and will discuss our "game plan" then.

I am totally in love with my Garmin except for one small issue. I have the strap on the 2nd to smallest notch and once I start running it slides around on my sweat covered wrist. Which then causes it to bounce off that small bone on the side of my wrist. If I put it on the tightest notch, then it's too tight and hurts. Anyone have an idea on how I can make it fit more comfortably on my wrist? Should I purchase the loop strap versus using the watch style strap it came with?

  1. What marathon are you training for? I'd buy one of the other straps instead of trying to use the watch strap that it came with if your Garmin is hurting you!

  2. I am training for Chicago. I chose to follow Hal Higdon's 18 weeks intermediate I marathon training program.

  3. Did you Garmin come with two straps? Mine did, try the other one. I also put mine on the 2nd smallest hole =/ It doesn't bounce around to much though.
