I will normally run something like 3km on Saturday, but I am already at 100% so it won't matter for the challenge!

Morning all. Looks like I will get to 100% of my goal with my "Pumpkin" run tonight with folks at the local running store. It's a little running party and should be fun if it doesn't rain (or at least doesn't rain too hard).

Costumes are encouraged, but I heard that only 1 person actually wore a costume last year. I think I'll just stick my cat ears on my hat and call it a costume.

I finally gave in to the lure of the Garmin GPS and bought one for myself. I have the Forerunner 50, which is not GPS, but does have heart rate, a foot pod, and speed/cadence sensor for the bike. Unfortunately, it only has enough memory for about 7 hours of training time. For regular people, that's fine. For us triathletes, barely enough for a single workout in many cases. So, I was looking at the various newer models, and since I am, at heart, a cheapskate, I was still going to eschew the GPS versions and get the new FR60, which is a beefed up version of the Forerunner 50 and it has something like 12 hours of memory. Also, one of my issues is my teeny-tiny wrists, so those "computers" never seem to fit right. However, over the weekend, I discovered the Forerunner 301, and because it is "sideways" it's not quite as clunky feeling. Also, the velcro strap lets me adjust to just right (I've never had a regular watch band fit correctly). It's surprisingly light. Not as fancy as the new 310xt or even the 305; however, it has 15 hours of battery life and, best of all, it is a heck of a lot less expensive. It gets here tomorrow and I can't wait to use it for my long run on Sunday.

Have fun playing with your new toy this weekend!!

Halloween spin tonight.  I keep all the lights out and just use glow sticks and jack o'lanterns in the room.  Playlist is on my blog.

I think he should adjust. I thought he was going to adjust. But so far, he hasn't changed the spreadsheet..... Maybe we should taser him? That would give him something to think about besides his knee.

That's me. 100% Giver.

October is almost over. I guess I'll have to put away my Carol Ann Peep avatar for another year.... Hopefully, I won't need to put up a losing penalty avatar next month though!

I have one run wog left to hit my goal. I'll do it on Saturday. (And if I don't want to, I'll just taser myself. LOL)

I'll check on Saturday that you got it done.  Otherwise you will be running by the light of your Taser into the dark night to finish before midnight!!

Did someone say taser???  I don't think sooo... 

Alright I have adjusted my goal

drumroll please.......

I ran 2 miles on the dreadmill tonight....  I'll see how the knee feels tomorrow morning, if it is good to go then I should be able to make my adjusted goal with a run on Friday and my 5k and 1mi fun runs on Sat...

Turns out that at a soccer practice I was coaching, when I slipped on the wet grass, I hyper extended my knee...  I was thinking it was the run that morning, but in retrospect, it had to be the soccer practice....

Anyway, good to back on the mobile side...

The evil day is almost here, fellow reapers!

As of last night, I am at 100%.

I think it blew up my foot.

Dammit!

Thanks!

I really liked the idea of the 405. Especially for the watch size. But, like I said, I am a miser.

I figure there will be places where the GPS on the 301 won't work great, but I think for the most part it should be okay. The folks I've talked to who have one here seem to like them very much.

Maybe once I get fully indoctrinated into the GPS running and stuff, I will be compelled to "upgrade."

That's not good.  Hope it's okay.

And I, of course, am an idiot, so I will probably keep running on it until I simply can't.

I have a race tomorrow (duathlon with hubby; he's riding, and I'm running, and, no, we can't switch, it would kill him). Then, a long run on Sunday. After that, I will evaluate how it feels and, in consultation with my coach, decide how to deal with it. I may take next week off from running. We'll see. But I just signed up for another challenge, and I hate to have to modify my goal.

Bleah.
