I ran again with my virtual partner yesterday. My training plan had the same distance and time as the workout before so I chose my previous time. ON this workout I decided to see how far I could actually jog before I needed a walk break. I made ... Read more

I ran with the virtual partner feature yesterday on my Garmin Forerunner 305. I ran the same route and distance as I did on Monday, so I thought I'd compete with myself and see if I could beat my time.

I weighed myself this morning and realized that I am down 2.8 pounds this month. I joined a lose 5% challenge by labor day. That is about the amount I gained this spring when I just had to have those Peanut Buster Parfaits from the Dairy Queen. ... Read more
