3 out of 100

I am so incredibly proud of my half marathon group. Yesterday my walking buddy and I were doing a pace of 8 minutes and 30 seconds. We were bringing up the back of the pack. Everyone was ahead of us, normally we're the leaders of the pack but we had a pretty hard core walk on Sunday so we decided to take it easy. Wow everyone totally turned it on. Everyone is going to beat their goal times at their races. I'm so excited for everyone.

I don't know what's wrong with my Garmin Forerunner (I love this thing, it's like the best training partner). Last night the screen froze, can't turn it off or anything. I left it on all night and today so hopefully the battery will die and then I can recharge it. Of course I have no idea where I put the receipt so then I can't use the warranty so that sucks. Oh well I haven't given up yet.

So my food plan has been going well, I left my journal at work yesterday and I actually felt lost without it. When I came in this morning I discovered I had already journalled my breakfast and lunch for today so I was bang on for points. I know have 9 pts for dinner and the options are endless. I could also do a lower point dinner to compensate for some of my weekend shenanigans. It would seem that day 3 is going well.

Finally tried the Biggest Loser DVD, OMG I did the low impact workout and couldn't get through it...mind you I also completed a 2.5hr walk that day so it probably wasn't the best day to try it.

Tonight I will walk home from the library (about 20min) and do the Core Secrets DVD for strength training.

Lately I've been obsessed with Strawberry Buttercream Icing...not to eat it...to make it. A couple of weeks ago my friend and I went to Crave in Kensington and I tried the mini princess cupcake. Buttercream icing infused with real strawberries. I think my walking group might get cupcakes on the last night :)

I had the same thing happen with my 301 not too long ago. I did exactly what you said; let the battery drain, then recharge. It's fine now.

I also emailed Garmin and they sent me the following reply:

I am writing in regards to your ForeRunner 301 issue. I would be happy to assist you with this. In regards to the unit not responding, there is a reset that I would like for you to try. To reset the unit you can press and hold the Reset Button + Power Button. You should be able to press and hold these buttons for about 5 seconds and then release.
After this, the unit should respond to your key pressings. Let me know if this does not work!

I hope the above information is helpful. Let us know if you have any other questions or troubles. Thanks for your time!
