5/1 Easy run

First run outside with the new watch. A little chilly this morning, but not too bad. I did the same route I did on Saturday, but without the intervals around the lake - I wanted to concentrate on the pacing functions of the watch. Worked pretty well - Set the "Virtual Training Partner" to run at 8:15, and tried to keep up with him. He got ahead by almost a minute going up the big hill, but I caught back up on the downhill. Fun; I hope that will motivate me. Someone please see how the info looks on Garmin Connect. After I run the half, I'll probably move all my tracking there from Mapmyrun, so I don't have to do everything twice...

Planned:
25 minute run, finish with 6 x 20 second strides (mile pace) with 1 minute rests in between

Actual:
27:32 run at 8:07 pace
3.39 miles in 27:32

Looks like you're making great time! Thanks for the encouragement. Being sick STINKS when you're trying to train, but I'm fighting through it :)

The website does look pretty cool- that it tracks your elevation and calories is awesome! Any you're right- it's not too big either, like a laptop strapped to your wrist. :) However, the chart part never did finish loading for me. What is that?
