So I have one run in the books with my new Garmin (I know all of you are like "enough with the Garmin") but last night was my first regular run throughout our neighborhood. The run went great, I completed 4 miles at about 8 min pace and my body felt great.
The exciting part came when I logged onto Garmin Connect for the first time and loaded up my run data. This application is AMAZING. I had no idea the Garmin collected this amount of information during the run. With that being said I am in no way affiliated with Garmin, I dont work for them, not sponsored by them, and paid hard earned money for this device. I would recommend one to ANYBODY and have no idea how I ever ran without one.
Here is the Garmin Connect application from my trail run on Monday.
Have you used the Garmin Connect application before? Do you think it breaks down your run too much or do you find it helps make you a better runner?
Hello, thank you for joining me along my journey of becoming a Runner! I've always been an active guy, played sports in high school and continued into adult recreation sports after high school. As I started my family and found a career, the activity level slowly decreased. Well my Fiance had enough of our lazy ways and started on the Weight Watchers program and completely overhauled our daily meals. Step 2 was getting more active, so we decided to JOG our annual Juvenile Diabetes charity walk and actually enjoyed the activity. The month following the charity walk, we signed up for our first official 5K and had an absolute blast. From that point forward I have officially been BIT by the running bug and this is my journey to becoming a RUNNER!
