Goal 1: to have my surgery on my ankle, hopefully this fall, so I start running again.QOTD: What is your next big running goal to accomplish?
ATTQOTD: Mine is to get a new PR at the marathon distance in January 2020.
Be careful with this goal. Disney can always change how they do corrals again so I wouldn’t tie myself to an actual corral.Corral D for my next WDW half. Need to chop about 5 minutes off my 10k PR, or about 20 off my half marathon PR.
Born and raised in Ville Platte. I was actually living in Houston post Katrina when I created the username. Back in the New Orleans area across the lake in Covington now.
I'm from Opelousas, but live in Gonzales now. Learned how to cook a few things from some friends in Ville Plate and Eunice. Worked at Cooper Cameron (now called just Cameron I think) for a few years in the NDE department about 13-14 years ago. It was also the last time I've been to a Popeye's with a buffet! I had a lot of good memories from those days. For all the negative things brought upon the area during Katrina, it's the reason I called a girl I meet at a bar a few months before. That girl is now my wife and we next month is our 10 year anniversary. Nice little trip down memory lane there lol.Born and raised in Ville Platte.

You can buy a heart rate monitor and pair it with your watch via Bluetooth. While the wrist HR feature is neat, I have also found that it can be a little off at times as well. It's somewhat new tech so theres that and you also have to have your watch on tightly for better results.ATTQOTD:
I also have the Garmin 235. I purchased it about 4 months ago. I like it but yes I have an impression on my arm after runs. I find the HR monitor is not always accurate which is frustrating because I am doing my easy runs by monitoring my HR.
I have thought about buying HR chest monitor.
Not sure how it all works with the Garmin watch.
I'm currently using a FR 935 that I got to replace a FR 235. I've found the 935 to be a huge upgrade on the 235 in just about every way. The band is more comfortable, it acquires satellites much more quickly, the HR monitor is less obtrusive, the battery life is far, far better, and the list goes on... I also like that I can use it to monitor my biking and it gives me some nice metrics around my training status, even though I don't necessarily like or agree with its assessment all the time. At this point, I really haven't found any negatives for it.
I have a Garmin 920XT. I love the reliability, the long battery life, and the large screen. Mine is several years old, and while it still works fine, I have to admit I'm tempted by the new 945 or even a 935 now that they're being discounted. The only thing I don't like about the 920 is that it looks like a Garmin device and not a watch. It's not exactly fashionable enough to wear all day every day. Form over function, you could say.
I'm aware. This is a smaller step to my larger goal of getting my 10k time under an hour.Be careful with this goal. Disney can always change how they do corrals again so I wouldn’t tie myself to an actual corral.
I'm on a Garmin 235 as well. I like it for running but wouldn't want it as my daily-wear watch. I'm currently waiting for the next round of Android Wear devices to hit, where I'm planning to upgrade my Misfit Vapor.
