Super fancy new gadget!

I've been told by The Oracle that I don't have nearly enough fancy training gadgets. Everyone knows that what makes you fast is gadgets. So this week I have a lot of zone 2 easy running on the schedule. What better time to test out my fancy new HRM? Not only does it measure perceived exertion, but it also slows me down when I'm going too fast! It ensures that I don't come back as fast as I went out, and absolutely forbids me from running farther than 5 miles during my short runs.

Oh, and it also requires post run naps...

Yeah, they're cute. Yeah, they're precious. But the damn things start to wear out after 10 or 15 years.
But not yours, I bet! I know it is a sinister artificial dog, copied off of mine! (see http://tinyurl.com/69y93k
because I can't figure out how to hyperlink in a comment!)

new toys are fun! I keep things basic so a new toy means learning all the functions :) Hope school/rotations, etc. is going well. I love checking out your blog! good luck with your races coming up!

I have two like that. Mine also taste test nutrition (they didn't like orange cliff shots) and dimpled my bar end shifters on my bike. How they got to the end shifters I don't know. Hope it makes me fast.

OK It's time to wake up that dog and get on with your blogging. Do you expect me to get a life or something?
