My beloved Garmin Forerunner 305 is on its last legs - the alerts don't beep anymore, it won't sync with my computer, and new development today - pressing any of the buttons besides "start/stop" causes it to shut off.

SOOOO... I guess I'm in the market to replace it (as well as to find one for my fiance, who has gotten interested in my 305 lately). Any suggestions?

Features I love about the 305: the ability to have split screens, and to switch between screens. On one I show lap pace, lap time, lap distance, and on another I have total time, total distance, and current pace (which is actually fairly unhelpful most of the time). Thos are the two screens I use the most - the third shows me total time, total distance, lap pace, and randomly calories (which I assume is innacurate, making that fairly pointless as well.)
I also like the history log, with the ability to see overall stats, as well as lap-by-lap breakdowns without syncing it to my computer.
The heart rate chest band alway worked well for me, though I often forget to put it on.

I've never loved the bulkiness of the watch itself, but it never bothered me so much once I got on the road.

Accuracy is important.

Any ideas?

Earlier this month I ran the Tinkerbell Half Marathon. Actually I did the Pixie Dust Challenge, which was the 10K on Saturday and the half marathon on Sunday. I was going to write a regular race report, as I usually do with big races, but I'm prompted to write this instead.

I am a "regular" race runner. I run on average three marathons a year, having run my first in 2009, and I've run so many half marathons, 10Ks, and 5Ks that I've literally lost count. I save all of my race bibs, and I've run out of medal hangers, yet again.

I knew about Disney races but wasn't really prompted to try one out until my friend Maire convinced me to try one out last year, when I ran the Tinkerbell Half Marathon in 2015.

Please read the rest, It is important!Collapse )

Hi all,

I used to run half marathon distance, though was never very fast. Usually around an 11 min/mile time. Had to give up running years ago due to lower leg pain (that shoes, deep muscle acupuncture, massage, chiro and very slow reintro did not fix).

Years later, I've been adding in a 1-1.5 mile jog into my fitness routine. Currently running around a 10-11 min/mile pace and only running 2-3x per week (in addition to cycling, swimming and weights) but for a recruiting process Im in I'd love to bring that down drastically. I've never trained for speed -- anyone mind sharing resources or simple training plans?

I'm training for a half marathon at the beginning of June... training is going great, but I'd like to improve my pace a bit or at least keep it more consistent during my long runs.
Is there a app that will help with this?
I have the free version of mapmyrun already and the Samsung health app, which I'm already beyond their levels from what I can tell.

I'm looking for something that I can input my ideal pace and then have it tell me to hurry up or slow down.

Also, should my weekday runs be the time when I work on running faster?

Last week I began running consistently again after 10 weeks off following surgery (not running related). Before surgery I could comfortably run 8-10 miles of hills at a steady 5.5 - 6.5mph pace. I started back up only running 3 miles and building back up to 6 miles (which I did this morning). I had an imaginary race with another runner across the street on the same course (I won). Prior to my surgery, I had been consistently logging 30 miles/week for a year.

My last race was in December, 10k. I'm thinking that maybe instead of training for endurance I should train for speed and keep the mileage low. I'm 31, I am starting to feel the effects of running longer distances on my joints (and running in the california sun is murder on my skin even with all the sunblock), then there's the simple fact that I don't have the time I wish I had to train and run for over an hour every day. (stay at home mom of two toddlers and a husband with many of the same limitations as a toddler). I'm busy, but I need to run in order to preserve my sanity, and I'm trying to be realistic.

So thats my goal: run 5k's instead of 15, and run them really fast.
