Friday long run

Today was a bit frustrating. Wanted to run at my favorite place but didn't get there until the rain had started coming down pretty hard....and my garmin wouldn't find the satellite. I ended up using the treadmill. 6.5 miles is a long time on a treadmill.

I used the garmin for my heart rate but I've not been able to upload it tonight. I don't know what is going on with it. I think the rate stayed in the 140s most of the time, when I was doing a 12 min/mi pace. I kicked it up a bit to 11 min/mi pace for mile six and then a 10 minute pace for the last half mile. Thought I'd burned a ton of calories so I decided to get an Arby's roast beef and Swiss on the way home. I was hungry!!

Can you believe the calories and fat?? I don't think I'll ever eat one of those again.



  1. The last time my Garmin had trouble with satellites, I googled my problem and learned that I needed to reset it because I hadn't used it in a couple of weeks. I hope your problem is an easy fix, too.

  2. I use it every week. Odd how the day it wouldn't get the satellite is also the day it won't upload. I did use it on the treadmill, to monitor my heart rate. No matter what I do, I can't get it to upload.
