I received my Garmin 305 heart rate monitor last night. Being the gadget and numbers geek that I am, I also purchased the foot pod and the cadence monitor for the bike. I can't wait to get started with it! BUT -- big BUT -- its sooo complicated! I consider myself a techie but when it comes to gadgets I become a stupid girl! I have to rely on John (my husband) to read the manual and tell me how to do it!
In other 'gadget' news - I'm on my way to the chiropractor today to get my Orthotic for my right shoe. I am torqued and have to see a chiro once a week because I continue to throw my body out of balance, hopefully the new Orthotic will help correct this! Once I'm fitted for this I can actually get a new pair of running shoes, and hopefully reduce the number of adjustments.
I had a hilarious incident with some chicken and my shoes, where I've NEEDED a new pair of shoes for about a month now but need the stupid orthotic to make sure it fits properly!
I had a great workout and stopped at to get a chicken salad bagel before my acupuncture treatment. Girl's gotta have her protein! I was still in the parking lot when my phone rang so I attempted to answer it. Half the sandwich was sitting on the seat and in the act of answering the phone I knocked it directly into my shoe (which was sitting on the floor) Chicken- Mayo-Onions and all!
As if that wasn't bad enough, I put down the half in my hand to remove the chicken from my shoe and proceeded to knock THAT half directly into the SAME shoe!
I laughed, but really, not so funny! It is making me get a new pair of shoes though ;)
