I’ve bought a ‘cheap’ Garmin Forerunner 30 with my Christmas money, what is happening to me? Apps keep glitching and I can’t stand it anymore. Unfortunately I am such a technophobe, I can be bothered with it all, reading the instructions, blah blah, blllaaaaahhhh. It can’t be that hard to work it out? So I just put it on and go.
Big mistake. Of course, I should have known. It’s meant to buzz / vibrate after a km…. minutes come and go, surely by now? No…. Because…. it’s in miles. So my brain goes into twit mode, can I work out 9k in miles? No. Oh no, it’s all going to go wrong….Calm down. 5 miles is 8k roughly. It’s ok. But it isn’t, so my gremlins tell me, so later on I fiddle with watch running along…. Miles counter changes to heartbeats. Now I don’t have a clue what the hell is happening and I really want to do 9km. The thought of doing 8 again, to get so far but not quite there… well, I can’t have that.
I did 8km in 58 mins last time. But I am really lumbering along today, I feel soon slow and ploddy. So I manage another 17 mins on top of 58 just in case. And I’m thinking about everyone on here, and how you’ve all helped me get here today. And low and behold, when my legs grind to a halt (literally) I haven’t done 9k, I’ve almost done 10.5k.
I really can’t believe it. Anything is possible. But not without you lot
Extra bonus, Miserable Fag Lady was in the rec today and she’s got her New Year’s resolutions in order…. Well…. she was still lighting one fag off another, but before she did, she said hello to me - first. Improvements abound everywhere!
