because i had another quality workout on tap, i decided to try the whole "create a workout in the garmin training center and send it to my watch" business again.
last time: fail. this time: victory!
i swear i did the same things this time around as the last but who knows.
in the garmin training center, i went to workouts - new workout - created the steps (intervals) - and added it to the calendar. with the ant+ stick plugged in, i clicked "send to device", and after a few moments ol' garmin beeped to signal that it was establishing a connection with my computer.
that thing was so nifty! i didn't have to look at my watch once - it beeped at me each time i was switching from interval to recovery and back again. after i finished the last step of the workout it beeped at me so much i thought it was playing a song. i hope i can set up my other workouts in the future... so easy to just run and not worry about making sure you stop/start on time.
today's workout was 5x1000, and i must be drinking the motivation juice because once again i didn't wimp out on any intervals. (i've done that a lot in the past, so i have to give myself credit for not doing it!) my goal pace was 4:12/1000m (6:45/mile pace), and i was only off on 2/5 reps this time. i also got up and out the door before 5am; i'm feeling very accomplished.
and i just realized this workout isn't actually scheduled until june 15th. way to go me.
