Saturday Morning - Klutz Time

Well I'm up and about at 5 am, eating some oatmeal and peanut butter before our easy 3 or 4 mile run this morning. The good news is that the computer says that it is still 32 degrees, it apparently didn't get to the mid-20's as predicted. Sometimes I love those weather dudes being wrong.
I am such a klutz, I need to live in a bubble at times. Last week while in Houston I fell and banged up my left knee and hand. The hand is almost healed, the knee is coming along but can still be sore. This morning I'm swinging my legs out from under the table and I bang my left knee on the sharp corner of one of the table legs, ouch! Yes it hurt, yes it still hurts, but no I don't believe I did any further damage except maybe to my pride.
Yesterday I returned my Polar watch, this is the second one that I've tried. The LCD face was less than a month old and the numbers on it were starting to fade, not all at one or all over, but just in selected areas. I returned it and got my money back. Then later in the day I bought a Garmin Forerunner 305 online that should be here Monday or Tuesday. This model has the heart monitor with it, a critical piece of equipment for me. I can't wait to get it and learn how to use it.

Hi, there!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I will add yours to me running reads.

I got a Garmin 305 in February and LOVE it! It has really helped my running a lot. I learned a ton about how I run after just one session with it. I think you will love it, too.

Oh you are going to LOVE your Garmin!! I have the 301 but I think it's pretty much the same as the 305. It totally improved my running! I can't imagine not running with it now! WOOHOO!
