Thanks to the wellness program at work, I won a new watch. It is a Timex Ironman Triathlon watch. www.amazon.com/Timex-Wom
I picked it because I am working on improving my running and Getstrongerr suggested Galloway's books and his run method of 3 minutes running, one minute walking.
I was unable to find a free interval timer for my blackberry, so this watch was a great option for me. I get the interval timer set and it works great (although I probably shouldn't have tried using it the first time I also decided on a new route with MAJOR hills).
Some of the other options it has is a timer (which I also have on my blackberry),
The description says: Ultra-durable, sporty, and boasting the precision of easy-to-read digital quartz movement, the Ironman Watch #T5K026 from Timex is the perfect workout companion. A rugged resin case surrounds a digital dial, complete with Indiglo nightlight for easy illumination in low-light conditions, and an adjustable resin strap with tang clasp feels secure and comfortable on your wrist. There's also a 50-lap recall, a 100-hour chronograph with lap or split option, and an interval repetition counter. For extra training help, a countdown timer includes a countdown stop and countdown repeat option, and three programmable and audible alarms with five minute back-up and on/off hourly charm make sure you get where you need to be. Battery powered and water resistant to 330 feet.
I am training for a Tough Mudder. Any other suggestions that I might want to use my watch for?
