I have a VERY important question:
Has Garmin Connect ever said “sync complete” but then the latest activity didn’t show up for you? My latest activities seem to be stuck in the history on my watch and no matter what they won’t upload to Garmin Connect. I submitted a support ticket with Garmin, but if you have any insight/advice it would be much appreciated.
I tried an old fashion sync by plugging my Garmin into my computer but it got stuck “searching” forever :(.
All advice is appreciated!
I was so frustrated by Garmin Connect I had to do a face mask to de-stress. I recently picked this Yes to Coconuts one up at Target for $1.99 :).
It made my face tingle in a way that was very unexpected. It was INTENSE. I’m not sure I will do this mask again. Then again the packaging is very pretty and I’m a sucker for that sort of thing, so maybe I will give it a second try. I do love most of the Yes To products!
I was snapping with Megan when I put the mask on and she wondered where I got the Hannibal Lector filter 😀
BTW I’m KristinaRunning on snapchat and during the last week or so I’ve been snapping like crazy. If you want me to send you ridiculous pics like this just let me know! 🙂
In case anyone is wondering my back is feeling MUCH better now. My hip is also feeling back to normal thanks to a few days of TLC! Today I will hit the ground running which makes me very happy.
I’ve been listening to a lot of running podcasts and reading so many race recaps that I am very anxious to jump into Miami training. That doesn’t start for a few more days, but I’ll be ready when it does.
If you are an ultra running fan and haven’t been listening to Sage Canaday’s new podcast, definitely check it out. I really liked the latest episode where Sage talked about overtraining for the Run Rabbit Run 100:
If you aren’t too familiar with Sage, he started out as a road marathoner and was part of the Hansons program before he made the switch to trail ultras a couple of years ago.
In the latest podcast episode Sage talks about how he’s overtrained for many races during his career – including races that he participated in while he was part of the Hansons program. He discusses how overtraining at times has led him to have too much cumulative fatigue to overcome during a taper period, and how this inevitably leads him to start a race with already tired legs with sub-par finishes.
This made me very glad to have switched from Hansons to a Hal Higdon plan for the Miami Marathon. I think I was really pushing the envelope with Hansons. Towards the end there some of my easy runs just felt like crap. If overtraining can happen to Sage it can happen to anyone.
However, if you are interested in reading about the experience of someone who loves Hansons and has had great experiences with it please check out Jennifer at Dashing in Style. She used the Hansons half marathon plan last year, and this year she’s using a custom Hansons plan for her first marathon – and she’s killing it! Plus she has a cute greyhound and some adorable cats :).
I hope you have a great Tuesday! Go enjoy Jennifer’s blog!
