Well a merry Christmas to everyone, I hope you enjoyed the festive season and Santa was kind to you.
Santa (aka Jane) was extremely good to me, I’ve been lusting after a bit of exercise tech ever since I started on this get fit kick and Santa was kind enough to ensure that it was waiting for me under the tree this Christmas!
So amongst the presents under our tree was a brand new Garmin Forerunner 920XT and a set of sensors for my bike! The Forerunner 920XT is a premium multisport watch and even has a quick release kit to allow it to fit on a standard Garmin bike mount. It collects a heap of data from your run/ride/swim or paddle and will help me ensure that I’m training as efficiently as possible, plus it looks the part which is always important. Once I’ve worked out all the functions and how to use it I will post a review (to add to the many that are already out there) and my thoughts on it.
I did manage to get in all my runs this week, although there was some juggling of the program so that I wasn’t running on Christmas morning and had a couple of days off over the busiest part of the Christmas break. The weather has turned extremely hot in the last few days, so running early is really important otherwise I just burn to a crisp. The upside is that I’ve been in the pool quite a lot and have been putting in some lengths which is working my shoulders and other paddling muscles in preparation for our holiday later in January and the beginning of my kayak training.
