Golly Gosh Gordon the Garmin's Great

Golly Gosh Gordon the Garmin's Great

First outing with Gordon today and I was really impressed. I had planned to compare it with RunKeeper, but it didn't want to start until about 15mins into my run... I can see Runkeeper getting retired very soon as I have been able import all my previous runs into Garmin Connect.

I had a nice 'longish' run of 7.5k which included running along an old railway line... This was a nice new route that I will use again... only met one other person, a runner, we waved and grinned accordingly. :-)

I know that a lot of you already use Garmin's and Garmin Connect, but I am really impressed with the information it displays. I also loved the virtual pacer that I used during my run.

Happy New year to you all and once again, thanks for all the support... i'm sure I couldn't have done what I have without you. :-)

  • Oooooo how do you put old run keeper runs into Garmin? I got one half way through the year so having both in one place for stats etc would be great! Happy running :)

  • I am using tapiriik.com. Its quiet straight forward to set-up and it worked for me and its free if you are happy to "sync" manually. It will copy your activities both ways apparently.

  • Thanks for that Andy, will check it out once the PC makes it back into action (it's currently having a holiday as the Christmas tree is where the dining table and PC normally live, house is too small for both!) :)

  • Ah , you and Gordon, a match made in heaven , Andy :-)

    Sounds like you've got it all sussed already ! Love the pic, that looks a fab place to run.

    Looking forward to hearing more about your running adventures . Happy New Year ! xxx

  • All the best to you Poppy... thanks for your support, have a good New Year and happy running :-)

  • Looks Great Andy lovely nice straight lines

  • Happy New Year Andy :D that looks a great place to run and you are certainly getting in the KM's very impressed :D here's to a great year for you and running :D

  • Thanks Rob... Happy New Year to you to :-) Certainly will be interesting to compare running notes this time next year!! Think a running conversation this time last year wouldn't have lasted long!!

    I'm sure you will get that sub 30 5k!!! Think you might get it on your next run :-)

    Have a good parkrun tomorrow.. think you said you were doing one. :-)

  • That would have been a very short coversation and followed by lots of laughing.

    Yeah NYD Parkrun tomorrow morning :-D we will see about that time . Haven't run this week yet . Would be a great way to start the year.

    I am seriously impressed with your distances Andy :-D

    That is 1 of my resutions for 2015 to train upto 10 k :-D

  • I've seen photos on Pinterest similar to that, entitled "Runner's Porn" ... also very envious of your new Garmin/Gordon ... shallow of me i know ... sounds like it/he's going to help you come along in literally leaps and bounds! Happy New Year to the both of you!

  • Happy New Year to you and your Garmin !

  • Pleased to see how much you love Gordon. I took delivery of Gertrude yesterday (also a forerunner 10) and can't wait to take her out tomorrow.
