I've taken the Garmin out for a spin a few times. I need to dedicate some time to the instruction manual because right now all I can get it to do is record my time, distance and pace on this basic screen.
Went out for an easy 5k this morning and enjoyed being able to see exactly how many miles I run. It'll be nice to not be dependent on a specific, pre-designed running route to hit the day's miles anymore, or to have to estimate the miles run based on my time. Now if I want to run a five miler I can just go run wherever I want and know exactly when I'm finished.
And hopefully I'll be adding fun charts and graphs to the blog soon.
