I have a new bestie to run with me! Get a load of this beaut. After much research and debate, we made a big purchase. The Garmin Forerunner 305 is the newest edition to the fam. It looks like the watch version of Zach Morris’ old cell phone. It’s a honker. This little arm candy is a laptop to-go, complete with heartrate monitor and GPS. Indy was clocking some serious speed during our evening walk. No more guessing on my runs, and it’s perfect for biking too. I’ll have a more in-depth review once I break this puppy in.
From the pros over at Garmin: Form meets function with Garmin’s high-performance line of personal trainers — the Forerunner 305, 405 and 205. The Forerunner 305 includes a high sensitivity GPS receiver, new courses feature and robust wireless heart rate monitor for optimal performance.
Tri Training Tips & Tricks: Don’t guestimate on your moves. I realized I was too much of an “on a whim” workout gal. I said, “OK I’ll run for this time” or “maybe this is 4 miles, it felt like 4 miles.” When you’re on a bike or in the pool you keep much better track of miles or laps and the same should be said for running. The Garmin is a good lesson for me to learn my pace and my mileage.
Get a load of all the deets here: Women all over the world leave Operation Beautiful notes in public places — at work, at the gym, at the grocery store. We scribble down whatever comes to mind — “You are beautiful!” or “You are amazing just the way you are!” Maybe some people read them and just smile, but I bet some people are truly touched by the effort of a random stranger.
With all the crap in magazines and online today, we are constantly comparing ourselves to others. Damn, RuPaul was right! “”If you don’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?”
Zack Morris AND RuPaul mentions in the post, score!
Tonight I have a hawt date with my pal Moose, we’re heading to Sugarland!! Yea summer concerts.
In honor of Operation Beautiful, what’s one thing you love about your best friend or family? I love that my friends and family keep me grounded and show me the importance of making time for everyone.
