Oh…YES I DID. I may have gone slightly insane today, but I swear it’s not my fault. I was told by J.P. that there was a sale at REI, and believe me, I am not one to turn down a sale. I have been in the market for a Camelback for a while now, and since they were 25% off, now was the perfect time to invest! I think it will be great for me on my longer runs with the weather warming up. One must stay hydrated! I very much enjoy the neutral black color to go with all my outfits, but I am also very excited about the subtle pink trim. Had to get the pink in there somewhere!
Here is where I got a little crazy. The 30$ Camelback is one thing, but the Garmin Forerunner 405 is in a league of purchases all its own. After my drama with my Nike+ yesterday, I have lost pretty much all faith in all accelerometers, since they don’t know your stride and are not consistent. So that pretty much left me with only one option:
I got such a good deal. If you are on the fence about getting one of these, go to REI right now. It is originally $300 (+?), but its on sale for $259 with a $50 rebate. So you walk away with this puppy for a little over $200. Such a good deal. The 305 model is $250 so you get the newer model for cheaper. It doesn’t take much for me to talk myself into deals like this.
Ok, for real this bad girl is HUGE. MASSIVE might be a better word, but it feels comfortable on my wrist. I am not sure this was made for women, but THIS woman is going to make it work! I know so many of my readers have a forerunner. I can’t wait to try it out. I remember when I first found out about these forerunner things. I was like “who would spend that kind of money on something like that?!” haha. the answer my friends is yours truly! And I am VERY excited about it!
Hello love! So PRETTY! I will do a review on this when I run later in the week. More running questions: I have a half marathon in less than 4 weeks. What is my rest/recovery time from this 10 miler? I heard that you are supposed to rest one day for each mile you ran, but that would totally set me back for my Zooma training? Maybe just take it easy this week and go from there? Thoughts?
