Two of favorite bloggers posted about why they are choosing to run “garmin free”At times during their training.
Lisa wrote about learning to know your paces without the Garmin, and Michele wrote about how she thinks the garmin is having a negative effect on her during training. Both are fantastic reads and food for thought. I personally adore my Garmin-but I do agree with Lisa on letting your body “learn” your pace.
And Michele hit the nail on the head for me when she said that at times, she can feel the Garmin slowing her down. There is a time that the Garmin is my worst enemy: during a race. I have made it my RULE not to look at it!!!
I found a few new awesome running apps that I wanted to share with you.
The first is based on the popular “Mcmillian Tool” where you can input a recent race time, and it will project your finishing time for a different distance. (so for example: input your recent 5k time, It’ll spit you out your projected half time)I had to buy it, but it’s awesome because the tool also gives you the different workout paces that you should be doing. You can search for it as “McRun”
Cool app number 2 got me all hopped on musical energy. This app takes the music in your phone and customizes it-beat wise to the type of workout you’re doing. It’s called “Pace DJ“. It lets you create interval workout playlists and that is pretty neat-o (yup, i just said that!) check it out!!!
I am fully obsessed with watermelon juice made from my Ninja. But chopping up a watermelon is a royal pain in the a** am I right?! The hubs found this video online and I tried it yesterday-IT WORKED. My life just got better…
