Next month I am going to be starting a running plan, and I wondered if you guys could tell me about these Garmin things you run with?

It's a fancy pedometer that works off of satellites so it's accurate.

I have a 405 with heart rate monitor, it rocks.

This is my tracking info from the half marathon, all that data right from your wrist!

I found the Nike+ to be horribly difficult to use, I had problems every step of the way. After 3 tries to calibrate the thing, I took everything back to the store and swore off Apple products forever.

I swore off my Apple when my ipod wouldn't work. It was impossible to get it right and I took everything back, too. But now the iphone is intriguing me. I like the leveler app - how cool is that - to turn your phone sideways and have a leveler built in. Not that I'd need it often but it's cool. And the games look cool, too.

What running plan are you going to follow? I was going to ask Jean for some advice because I'm thinking about trying it with my dog. I don't think I've ever really given it a fair try.

I've always gotten shin splints, too, but maybe I was doing something wrong. That's why I'm wondering if a real plan would help. I don't really need the impact either but maybe 1 or 2 days a week, if I do it right, might be good for me. With the right shoes, the right plan, the right weather, the stars in alignment ... We'll see. :)

Good luck, and let me know what works/doesn't work for you.
