Great Running Weather + New Garmin?
Last night the weather was just beautiful!
It was quite windy, but I’ll take that over baking hot any day!
Average heart rate of only 153. I’m getting so much better at this keeping the easy runs easy thing. (I’m sure the weather didn’t hurt either!)
The reason why I mentioned the other day that I may be in the market for a new Garmin is because I am committed to heart rate tracking now, but I hate wearing a device on both of my wrists.
You can see in the pic above I’m wearing my Mio wrist based heart rate monitor, and on the other wrist of course I have my Garmin Vivoactive.
I still really like my Mio but now that Garmin has made wrist based heart rate tracking affordable with the Forerunner I think it’s time to upgrade to the Forerunner 235. I really like the Volt edition that Garmin made with Nike, and I think it will be nice to wear one device instead of two.
The frost blue color is really pretty too though.
I’ve been buying so much stuff for the house recently that I am just itching to buy something running related! 🙂 #FeelingSpendy
My closing date for the townhouse is this Friday. Can. Not. Wait!
It’s been two months since our offer was accepted. Since then I’ve signed more documents than I ever have before in my life, but now we’re in the home stretch! The tenant that was living in the house moved out yesterday, our final walk through is coming up and then we’re good to go!
I’m finally allowing myself to be more excited than nervous and it’s a good feeling!
Bring on the paint swatches, I’m so ready for this!
Do you have a FR235? Is there anything you don’t like?
Anyone really into home automation? We’re going to make our townhouse a smart home and I need someone to geek out with over all of this!
