Preeeeetty sure I broke my Garmin.

I accidentally left it on ALL NIGHT and the battery was completely drained. I plugged 'er in to charge and got nuffin. I did the "soft reset" and got her rolling again, but when it stopped working right before my run.

SO. Trying not to panic. Although, running 8 miles without it (just like the old days) felt really good. I finished in 1:15, which is a little slower than usual, but not too far off my goal pace.

Pfft, "goal pace." I mean "don't walk, survive, think of dessert."

Guess I'll be running for duration (40 mins., 1 hour, etc.) until I figure this out.

Oh, and school is about to start again. HIP HIP!


  1. I'm impressed with how much you've improved your pace, considering you've been busy with law school! Congrats on the half-marathon time, new course and everything. Did you use your Vibrams? Lenore (who can't switch to her other freakin' gmail account)

  2. P.S. One of the ladies in my running group sent her watch back to Garmin when it stopped working. There's a guarantee on it. They offered her a refurbished 305 watch for $39+ shipping.

  3. huh... try plugging it in for a few hours and make sure the GPS is off. I kill mine all the time-- but it usually comes back to life.

  4. Thanks for the tips ladies! I feel naked without ol' Garmy :(

    Lenore/Marie: I did use my Vibrams! They are all I run in now (except when I go to the gym, because barefoot + treadmill = TOO MUCH NOISE).
