Two Week Summary
I now have two weeks of continuous days of running in the bag. Here are the vital statistics:
Total duration: 6:45
Average Duration: 0:30
Total distance: 64km
Average distance: 4.6km
I need to fight nostalgia because there have been weeks in the past when I have been preparing for a full or half marathon where my weekly totals would definitely eclipse these figures, and I would take a rest day or two. That being said, I am really pleased to have got to 14 days straight.
I have decided to follow a training plan I found on Garmin Connect - Getting Started (Level 2) - and it starts today. It is only three runs per week plus cross-training. I will do some of the cross-training, but plan to fill the other four days during the week with recovery-pace runs. To do this I want to start using my Garmin Forerunner 301XT on "plan days" and the TomTom on the other days.
I really like my TomTom as a tracking and recording device, and I especially like the fact that the software can connect and upload to multiple sites; however, the connection is only one-way. I prefer my Garmin devices when I am following a training plan because of how well the device is integrated with the web site. I can select a training plan from GC and send the plan to the device. If I'm not using a Garmin plan, I can set up my workouts and push them to the device. With the TomTom, I currently can not program workouts on-line, schedule them and download them. Hopefully, it is in the works.
