I did 5 miles today, I'm in a fall back week; my blessed, blessed fall back week! So no runs longer than 6 miles, then I'm back to a 10 miler and I'll probably start tacking on more miles-gradually. The nice thing about being done with races for the year is I can add miles and build my base at a leisurely pace.
I finally got the heart rate monitor strap working again. I put in a new battery and still no read out on Mr. Garmie. So I kept playing with it, installing, re-installing, it finally started showing a reading. The trick for those of you who have yet to replace the battery-the battery has to be firmly seated in just the right position.
