In a moment of madness on Black Friday in December I bought myself a Garmin Forerunner 620 because it was in a sale.
This was madness for two reasons.
Firstly, I don't understand how to work it, even having studied the instructions!
Secondly, even once I do understand it (I am going to find a friendly toddler to explain it in words of one syllable), I can't see it at all without my reading glasses on.
Does anyone else have that problem? I would like to start finding out how fast I'm running WHILE I'm running, rather than just waiting till I go home and looking at the breakdown on Strava. But that would entail taking my reading glasses with me. How much of a pest is that? Do you hold them in your hand? Do you stick them on top of your head? To be fair I do currently take them, in case I have to use them in an emergency in order to phone for help, but they are buried in my stretchy ifitbelt under my clothes and it would be tricky to get them out mid-run.
And a supplementary question, if I may...
Rather than just my cheapy supermarket reading glasses, I will probably be heading for all-the-time varifocals soon as my middle-distance eyesight isn't what it was. I know this is a silly question but if you wear glasses throughout a run, do they get steamed up?
