Bring it on, Monday

by Meghann on August 13, 2012

Good Morning!

Happy Monday everyone! How was your weekend? Anything exciting? I attended a baby shower in Orlando on Saturday, but kept it pretty low key at home on Sunday – it was the perfect balance of on-the-go fun and pure laziness. ;)

It wasn’t bad getting out of bed this morning. I headed to the gym and did one of my favorite treadmill workouts (5-4-3-2-1) then followed up with some free weights.

I think I’m starting to grow comfortable enough with free weights to semi-create my own workouts at the gym. They’re nothing I’m ready to share, but I’m starting to understand the balance of supersets and working various muscle groups. Not too long ago, if I didn’t go in with a plan, I would wander around the weight section and do a little of this and a little of that before giving up. Now I can go in there with an understanding of what muscle groups I want to work, and how to execute that.

All this means is the last year I’ve spent reading up on strength training and sticking to it, is paying off. I feel the same way about swimming too. Just further proof not to get frustrated and give up if you don’t immediately understand something – stick with it and it will eventually come together.

After the gym I had a bowl of cereal for breakfast.

Love the mix of nuttiness and cherries. :)

Garmin Debate

I have a confession to make. My Garmin Forerunner 205 is missing. I wore it during the Crystal River Triathlon in May and haven’t seen it since. I’ve searched all of my gear bags, my car, and turned the house upside down looking for it, but I got nada. At this point I’m assuming I took off when I changed in the Publix bathroom and left it there. Sadness.

I’ve been using my MotoActv watch exclusively since my Garmin went missing – and have been very thankful to have a GPS-enabled watch – but it has some quirks I’m not a fan of. For starters, the battery doesn’t last long (I’m constantly charging it), there isn’t a way to alert me with lap times at every mile, I can’t review my runs while it’s paused, and I…umm… dropped it on the tile and the screen is cracked in the corner (whoops). It’s a good watch, but I’m a Garmin girl and I miss my Forerunner.

Today I saw this deal pop up in my inbox.

The Garmin Forerunner 110 in pink (yes, the fact that it’s pink is important ;) ) for $149.99. Not a bad deal at all.

So now I’m debating. Get the new watch or no?

I’ve read up a little on the 110, but I’m curious to see if any readers have one and, if so, what are your opinions? Do you like the 110? Does it have any quirks? Worth the investment? Please share!
