ok garmin runners... i need some tutoring. how do you program & upload workouts into it? (i have the 405, if that makes a difference). i tried putting the program into the garmin training center on my computer and then hitting "send to device" but it appears nothing was sent to my watch. yes, the ant+ stick was plugged in to the computer.
yesterday (tuesday) was my first quality workout in a very long time (umm october '09). i thought i'd be all high-tech and program it into my garmin so that i didn't have to go to the track, but of course i didn't get that working right. i still didn't really want to run circles so i geeked out and put on a second stopwatch. (i'm also not very good with hitting the split/lap button on garmin...) ghetto, but it worked out.
so yeah... advice welcome. wearing two watches is dorky :)
i had 10x400 on the schedule and actually did all 10. i'm notorious for finding some excuse to cut out reps, but i persevered for the day. my goal pace was 1:36/400m (6:26/mile pace) and i was off on 9/10 reps (hah), but i didn't dwell on it because it was my first real workout in a loooong time. i figure that's a good enough reason.
400's - 1:40, 1:41, 1:35 *yay*, 1:42, 1:40, 1:39, 1:46 *yikes*, 1:39, 1:44, 1:40
avg 1:41/400m (6:46/mile pace), avg/max hr 170/193
not great vs. goal pace, but definitely a step in the right direction.
