Technology challenged

A while back I got a Garmin 305. At first I loved it and used it all the time. But then I realized some problems with it. I didn't like that the HR was displayed so small at the top of the screen. There were a couple of other things I didn't like that I can't remember right now, but trust me, it bugged me. Then I got my Nike + and decided that was way more fun, except it didn't have a HRM. Oh the dilemma. So this morning I go to run and my Nike + is dead. Oh, poo!!! I bust our the Garmin and, since I was early, looked at the instructions only to realize I could customize the display screen. DOH!!!!! I swear, it's the little things that trip me up. So I got in a 3 mile run and had a blast and got to see my HR the whole time - woo hoo!!!!

Tonight I did my weight workout. I missed last night because I had to take Rocco to the vet. If you're interested the whole story is over at Flo's Place. So I did Day 1 tonight and then I did this interval workout that was really fun. You do jumping jacks for 30 seconds then rest for 90 seconds. Repeat 7 times. It turned out to be quite fun. So I got a good run this morning and a good workout tonight.

I'm alone tonight, it's poker night, so I'm off to have something for dinner and go to bed early.
