I met up with two other gals from the running group, one of which ran the Disney World Marathon in January. She had a perfect 10 mile route planned for us. It snowed only about an inch last night so the roads were clear. The sun was out and it was a comfortable 28 degrees. We started out and met up with runner #3 at the 2 mile mark since she only had 8 miles planned. We ran for about 4 miles on an old paved railroad pathway then took to the roads. We encountered many hills, but we each fed off of each other and conquered those babies. The miles just flew by. I like those kind of runs where you are distracted by conversation to the point you don't even know what mile you are at. 10 miles run and done!
I did have a problem with my Garmin though. I have a Garmin 405CX and right off the bat it was stuck on the heart rate screen, and I could not get it to change to the screen where I could monitor the pace, elapsed time and miles. I just started the timer anyway and we took off. Since the other two ladies had Garmins as well, I knew I could get our final time and average pace from them and sync my own Garmin when I got home. You know how the Garmin will just sync to your computer automatically? Well, it beeped like it was doing it but then when I went to the Garmin website to see our splits and elevation, etc, nothing new was there. I tried to" force send" it and the watch screen said transferring data, but still nothing was there. Boo! Anyone have any idea what could be wrong? I really want to see our splits and elevation.
May your long run be as fantastic as mine if you have one planned!
Total miles for this week = 20.
