I ran 16 1/4 miles or so today. My Garmin Forerunner 205 lost the satellites numerous times, showed my pace was crazy fast and crazy slow and finally stopped adding miles even though I was still running. I was able to figure out my distance because I ran a route I'm used to. I had a goal of running 16 miles. The last four were supposed to be faster. I can only hope!
I reset my Garmin and updated the software. I'll see how it acts tomorrow. Hopefully, it was only a fluke.
If not, I'm looking at the 310XT (I like the four data fields at one time) or maybe the 305, but I don't know. I wonder if the 305 gets better satellite reception than the 205, which I have.
I think I took a Powerbar gel around mile 4, 8 and 11 (meant to take one at 12, but my Garmin said 12 when I hadn't run 12 yet, and I didn't figure it out in time). Bad Garmin! It also told me I ran a 6:57 mile.
Silly Garmin! If you're gonna lie to me to make me feel fast, you're gonna have to make it a little more believable than that 'cause that's just way too fast for me!
Now I wonder if I should run 5-6 with hills tomorrow and an easy 5 on Wednesday, or what. Little decisions that don't matter in the big scheme of things! Ah, the little ones are so much better than the big ones!
