My turn- 50 min run so.... 470/800??? I need mrsdrake to keep track for me!

The aforementioned running tip was something I read in runners world magazine this month. It was about rhythmic breathing and making your breaths fall into a inhale for left right left, exhale right left, inhale right left right, exhale left right pattern. This way, you are alternating the footfall of the exhale, which is apparently when you exert the most force on your body. It "balances" the force out between both sides of your body. And also, the breathing should be from the diaphragm. (which is why there is extra force on the exhale because of the relaxation of the diaphragm during exhale). There is some book called "running on air" that discusses it more in depth. Anyhow, I'm always looking for ways to decrease the impact on my poor beat up joints, so I tried this. It seemed to work for me at least insofar as I was able to run faster for longer (but I suspect that had to do with my more disciplined attention to breathing than the alternating foot exhales).

I also found some additional interesting stuff in a Jenny had field book I was reading tonight at Barnes and noble. I'll save that one for next time!

Does anyone else have trouble with the amount of time it takes their Garmin to get a GPS signal? It shouldn't take five minutes, right? I don't start running from the same place every time so I wonder if that has something to do with it? I have a 110.

The list is updated - congratulations to DisneyMagicMomma for (magically) reaching her goal for the month!! Awesome job. There's a few others who are pretty close, too. Awesome to see everyone working so hard.

We're at 46% as a group, which is awesome! (WAY too many "awesome"s in this post, sorry)

Stay healthy and injury-free, everyone!
When I plan to use my garmin, sometimes I'll set it outside on my porch while I change so it can find satellites. I am so impatient. But yes, sometimes it takes forever. I've heard it's worse when you travel or return from travel. I have the 610x I think. If I'm running away from home, sometimes I hold it by my steering wheel as I drive hoping it will find a signal by the time I get there.

You said your Garmin ran out of power when you ran. Mine takes longer to find the satellites when it is low on power. My iPhone died too many times when I was doing long runs so I gave in and bought a Garmin

We do all the same things. And yes, I think it sometimes takes longer when we travel. We take our garmin everywhere, cause it's fun to run in new places.

Thanks for sharing the breathing tip. My pt pushes diaphragmatic breathing and I think it's hard! But definitely worth trying the breathing stuff while running. If nothing else it will be a nice distraction.
