I have been a really bad blogger lately. For some reason I’ve been really tired and my brain is mush.
Since my last post I’ve been all over the web looking at prices on Garmins, Timex Iron Mans, and Nike Plus. Nike has already been crossed off the list since I have it on good authority that it isn’t at all accurate. But I’m still not sold on getting a Garmin.
I have already trained for and completed two previous marathons without the wonders of technology. Right now, I only have Daily Mile feeding me numbers and to be honest, those numbers stress me out sometimes. Sometimes I say myself, “if you don’t get a run in tonight, your Daily Mileage is going to look really shitty”. How would it be in the middle of a run if I were constantly checking numbers, making sure my pace stayed exactly where I wanted it? Also, this is suppose to be a cheap hobby. Given, the 205 is only little more than $100 (Bahaha! ONLY?!)
I don’t know. I keep fluctuating from one end of the spectrum to the other. The Angel (or devil) on my shoulder says maybe I should go all out Zen runner and even stop keeping track of my mileage. Instead just going out for an amount of time. It would be, like, totally freeing me from the shackles of conformity man. Then the Devil (or angel) on my shoulder says that I really, really want to run a sub 5 in Chicago and it’s totally doable if I could just keep better track of my pace. It was also very frustrating to not know how far I was going last weekend when my route changed.
Zen runner? Or Geeked out runner?
