It’s going to be another hot afternoon, but I’m going to get out there and run. I’m having to get back into the swing of things again as I took four days off from running last week (which I talked about in-depth in my last post), but I am still looking forward to getting out there and getting it done.
With the weather getting hotter, however, I will soon be forced to have to run in the mornings again. That means going to bed earlier and waking up earlier and doing no more than three mile runs. That’s the one thing I hate about mornings: being so limited in the distances I can run. I wake up at 5 a.m. on run days, and that gives me roughly an hour to get dressed, do push ups, (soon) sit ups, run, shower, and get dressed to make and eat breakfast, make coffee, and then hit the road for work.
As for the Garmin Fenix 3 HR, I’m enjoying it more and more. On my last run, I really liked the display and what it showed me during the run. The font is large enough for me to read without my glasses as I run without them, and its not distracting. It ticks off miles instead of half miles, so I have to get used to that for my three mile runs since I do a turn-around at the 1.5 mile mark, but otherwise, it’s really nice. I also found that using the default watch faces really speeds it up a lot. I was using a custom watch face that slowed it down considerably. As much as I liked that custom watch face, I prefer the faster performance. Besides, the stock digital watch face is pretty decent on its own.
