Garmin announced their newest watch TODAY!! The Garmin 10. They sent me one to test out and review but since I haven’t been running and won’t for a few more weeks I will just tell you about it and do my own review in a few weeks.
First of all, the color is sweet. Billy actually wore it to school today because it is so cool looking and he is hoping it will make him more friends in school. It is crazy light, comfortable and a lot smaller than the Garmin 305 that I am used to. This watch is only $129 which makes it way more affordable than a lot of the other GPS watches out there.
It is really easy to use, it located the satellites really quickly for me and as you are running you can look at the time and distance display or the calories and pace on another screen. When you aren’t running you can even review previous runs. You can also use virtual pacer on the watch which compares how fast you are running to your target/goal pace.
At the end of your run the watch shows your time, distance, calories burned and average pace. I think the coolest part about the watch is that it tells you when you set a new personal record (i.e. your fastest mile) or new personal distance record. This is going to be awesome for me to use to track my progress once I am back running again. Here is a little video that shows the watch in action:
Life changing news (for me, 99% of you probably have already done this) but adding cucumbers to your sandwich is a really good idea. So is toasting the bread (I learned that from my years of going to Subway)
I can no longer eat an apple without peanut butter on it.
Today I walked two miles on the treadmill and then attempted to use some of their weight machines. My goal for this year is to do this machine with weight added onto it… I kept trying it and then having to move up the little pin thing higher and higher until I could finally do it and that was when it got to the very top. Obviously, weight lifting is high on my priority list.
During this non-running time I decided to take advantage of the fact that my feet aren’t going to look quite as thrashed as usual. I even have all 10 toenails currently which hasn’t happened since 2005.
t painted my toenails while Brooke got in her reading time. Do you like her Born to Run onsie? PS sparkles and glitter are awesome at any age.
We might have another Curly on our hands. After Brooke’s bath she gets cute little curls but once it dries it goes back to being spiky.
Since I went so long not liking chocolate while I was pregnant it has become my mission to make up for it and so I had a Snickers bar after lunch (remember, I told you in my last HRG Baby post I am hungrier than I have ever been in my life). The best part about it was that I froze it a few days before and it is 59 times better frozen than just eating it at room temperature. Next trip to the store I will pick up a Milky Way to try frozen.
(Reenactment of getting snickers out of freezer because I wanted to eat it before trying to find my phone to take a picture ((don’t tell Billy I lost my phone for a few hours today)).
Tell me a tangent from your day!!
Garmin owners: how do you like the Garmin that you are using now? Anyone in the market to get a new one and try out the Garmin 10?
When you do weights do you weight machines or free weights?
Are your feet pretty thrashed when you are running a lot or have you found a magic way to keep them looking good?
