Recap below ๐Ÿ™‚

I have become very fond of using alliteration in my posts titles lately, huh? Look what came in the mail yesterday ๐Ÿ™‚

IMAG0926EEEE! Finally. I was so excited to bust it open and start playing with it! I’ll do a better review of it once I have used it more, but so far I am loving it. I customized the main screens to the things I use most: Screen 1- Distance/Average Pace, Screen 2- Distance/Current Pace, Screen 3- Lap Distance/Lap Pace. All I have to do is tap the screen for it to change to the next screen. It worked perfectly, even with my sweaty fingers!

I headed out a little later than normal since I was running fewer miles than last week and didn’t want to have to do a million loops before the sun rose. My watch locked satellites SO fast, by the way. Well my plan to avoid loop running was shot because it was super cloudy this morning, meaning there wasn’t as much light on the trail as I feel comfortable with, so I kept looping it up. I can’t really complain too much because the lack of sun kept the temperature a cooler 76 degrees. It’s crazy how much energy the sun zaps out of you! I made it home in just under an hour and fifty minutes to a sleeping hubby and dogter.

This probably makes the watch look ginormous, but I have the smallest wrists ever… it runs in the family. I really like how it stayed in place. When I was wearing Todd’s watch, it would flop around. His band was either too tight or too loose, there wasn’t a “perfect” notch. So far I am really happy with my decision to get the 610, so Thanks Baby! You know what else came in the mail this week? My new neon yellow ProCompression sleeves!

You better believe I wore these all day ๐Ÿ™‚ I love how bright they are! And do you noticed my painted toenail? You never would have known… haha.

How was the weather for your run this weekend?

What GPS/sports watch do you use?

    • Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s not actually a trail trail… since your a Tampa girl you might know it- the Upper Tampa Bay Trail. It’s similar to Flatwoods.
