Hello friends and Happy Monday!
Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I had a pretty relaxing one. I enjoyed a couple of long runs, time with the family and friends and my hubs' delicious almond flour pancakes. Actually, the only pain in the butt experience I had this weekend was caused by beloved Garmin watch. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my watch and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.
As a matter of fact, there are two items I wear ALL the time no matter what and that's my Newton sneakers and my Garmin Forerunner 310XT Waterproof Running GPS With USB ANT Stick and Heart Rate Monitor. The Garmin has been extremely reliable for me, but after several years, a few hundred rain showers and thousands of miles, I think it's beginning to kick the bucket. That's expected of course, which is why I will be buying one very soon. Even though there's other running watches out there, I favor this one because it's been durable and consistent. Why fix what's not broken (figuratively speaking- lol)?
There's absolutely no way I could run without that watch. It calculates my average pace, the distance I have traveled and speed, calories burned, heart rate and the amount of time that has lapsed since I started the run. It also has a GPS system which serves as a map in case I get lost in a foreign city. It also has a "History" button that saves all of your previous runs so that you can track your running progress and it allows you to transfer the data to your computer for analysis. The watch has other features that could be used for other non-running athletes, such as bikers and swimmers (it's waterproof!).
The Garmin Forerunner 310XT Waterproof Running GPS With USB ANT Stick and Heart Rate Monitor is my favorite product of the week. Do you run with a Garmin watch? Do you like it?

What's your favorite running watch?
I am grateful for almond flour. I
could eat healthy non-starchy pancakes because of it.
