You may already know that I am a gadget geek. On top of that, I am also anally goal-oriented. Hence the endless to-do lists and progress charts on everything I do. But when it comes to cardio exercise, it wasn't just enough to check it off my to-do list.
I needed to know my heart rate, pace, distance, speed, cadence... (yes, because I am such an athlete ::eye roll::). Treadmills are great for keeping track, but excruciatingly boring. I love to run/walk(/crawl) outside, so I needed something to play with while serving myself as dinner to all the mosquitos in the 25-mile radius.
So yesterday I bought this magical toy. A Garmin Forerunner 305 - a portable GPS with tons of cool features.
