Thanks to Meghann at Meals and Miles I was tipped off to an amazing deal on Amazon for a Garmin Forerunner 205.  It is on sale for $88.  I also had gift certificates to use.  My total purchase cost $49!!!!  I am psyched.  I have wanted a Garmin since my Nike Plus bit the dust just before the half marathon in October.  I know that a Garmin will be extremely useful in the upcoming year as I prepare for a full marathon.

After my 10 mile run yesterday I think that I will try to hit the gym tonight before work for a little Arc Trainer and some speed work on the treadmill.  I have also been trying to incorporate 2-3 days of strength training at the gym.  I know that it is important and I will reap the rewards in time.  After the 5K next Sunday my goal is to put together a winter training schedule so that I do not slip backwards during the holidays and cold weather.  I’m sure having the Garmin will make things a little more exciting.
