My runs are beginning to look like Christmas!

My first Wednesday run (I used to be busy on a Wednesday morning) but what a glorious day for a run. Well, I say run but my “keep going” button seems to not be working so well recently and my usually steady, green cadence graph on Garmin is now dotted with so much red it’s a bit like the Christmas aisle at Tesco! Had to contend with a blocked path too - fallen ivy no less, and a cat carefully guarding its kill (a small squirrel 🤢 ). I’m convinced this is just me getting back into the groove after a month off so no need to worry. If it continues too long feel free to intervene!

I feel for you Syb, and I hate that cadence graph - it always seems to sneak a few red dots in even when I'm convinced I didn’t slow down. Still, it was a very nice day for a run.

Oh is that what the red dots mean? I'd wondered...! 😁

Spent the evening picking up a few running bits & pieces from Amazon. Still can’t decide on which waterproof jacket - the weather has to change soon!

Tomorrow Carol says and that’s a run day!

mine have been spotty too, the last few runs, but i know it's because I'm tired, but also running on very uneven tracks around fields on and off.

Beginning to think I’m lazy!

LOL, I'm sure you're not, and you're creating beautiful art ;)

oooh! I'm off to google the meaning of garmin cadence graphs ... How long have I had my garmin ? (insert embarrassed emoji here)

It’s the little box top right that looks a bit like a graph (above where it says you’ve not used as many calories as you’re sure you must have!!). Once you get there there’s a help button to explain it all. Hope that helps.

Aha. I had seen the graph but will now take a look at the help info and maybe it will start to make some sense. Very little green though, so not sure I will like what I read 😀

Maybe it’s just saying you’re perfectly slow and steady! 😆

I took a look. On my last run, mine were mostly blue - but it sounded like that might be ok 🙂
