Last night, I was fiddle farting around the house when I got home from work. I
So I did it, 1.5 miles. That was enough in my mind to deserve wine. It was not a long run but it was longer than I went the day before. I am doing my own version of the Couch to 5K (er...marathon). My method is where I run until I can't run anymore and then the next time I lace up the shoes, I run farther than I did before. I know it a kind of backwards and but it works for me. I can usually work up to the 3 mile mark pretty quickly.
I received a response from Garmin and I am blown away by their customer service. My expectation was just an email response stating they appreciated my feedback and perhaps an offer to repair my current device. They went above and beyond that. They have offered to replace my 2 year old Forerunner 50 with the newer FR60 model. It is the same type of set up with the foot pod, HRM, and watch device that all sync with a wireless connection. I am going to take the opportunity to make the exchange and hope that the new model keeps its promises. Even though I have had a couple of dud items, Garmin really stands by their product and does a great job of keep their customers happy.
I am anxious to get home today to go for a little run (maybe 1.75 miles today, ha!). The weather is beautiful and PERFECT running weather.
