An accurate reading at last!

An accurate reading at last!

Morning all !

Well I have a new super duper garmin (that will map my run aswell )bought for me by my fab hubby!

My previous post informed you all that I had indeed completed a 6.3km in 40ish minutes even with a big power walk up a hill. So apologies for miss information.🙄🙄

So yesterday I awoke with great excitement about my Garmin,my stopwatch having been defunked and banished to the charger draw.

So had breakfast ,prepared for my run and adorned myself with my garmin. ( bees knees I think! ha !)

Had a great run and ran 6.28km. There was of course the usual hill so power walked that.

My intention is to aim for 10k. That is going to be a gradual process but I shall get there .

Anyhoo! Here's the photo!

Happy running all!😄😄

Hi Sandraj39 ! It was my husband introduced me to the garmin . He has a garmin for his bike. I think being able to map your run aswell as everything else it does is brilliant.

If only it could flatten the hills ............! ahh can't have it all ha! 😅😡

Ran my first 10k today, at the tender age of nearly 57 😉, having only been doing 2 miles for a good few weeks and only having done 8k once before and ages ago. So yep, I might be feeling a bit gung-ho at the moment but eminently doable.

ps: I love my pre-loved Garmin 15 but yours does look very sleek!

Oh ! Pollyp1 now who has the envy bug ......me! .Good for you on your 10k. I'm 59 only a couple of years older so I hope that I shall become as good as you and achieve what you have. So you have every right to be hung-ho!

I'm running a 5k in July RFL so I'm going to do a park run to test the lay of the land ,which is the same place as the RFL is taking place!

Thanks for compliments about garmin. They are great

And... I graduated over a year ago. So the fact that you're doing over 6k now is fab!

HM one day maybe but not for a good while. I need to do lots of consolidation now...

I also have a Garmin, aged about 7 weeks! I love it - and it gives me all sorts of useful information. It doesn't actually wake me up and make me go for a run, but I'm sure it could😈👍
