I’m tryin’ here folks, I really am . . .

I have completely lost the download cable for my spiffy semi-new Panasonic Lumix camera.  I have a bunch of pictures of my Bangkok park runs on there that I want to pull off and share with you folks but I CAN’T.  I’ve searched my apartment twice and today I even went to the electronics store in the Central Festival mall.  They had my exact model of camera . . . but not the download cable.  So now its looking like those pictures are trapped on my camera until The Girlfriend’s next scheduled visit when she can bring me one from the Land of the Big PX.  (That’s America, in case you’re not familiar with Army lingo.)

Anyway, let’s take a look at today’s run data:

Okay, time out.  What the hell is this?

I just went to get my run data for today’s run and apparently Garmin has completely redesigned their Garmin Connect Calendar page, which is the main page that I use at Garmin Connect.  This is off the cuff since I just saw this ten seconds ago and started taking screenshots, but here’s my initial reaction:  I really like the weekly total column and the monthly totals at the bottom.

I DON’T like that they went to pale colored text and tiny icons instead of the multi-colored block system.  I really liked having my calendar full of bright, multi-colored workout blocks.  It gave me great, quick visual reinforcement of my string of workouts (or lack thereof).

Anyway, back to today’s workouts.

This wasn’t as bad as I though it would be.  I got all the way to the last set without using any extra rest.  I gave myself an extra 60-seconds before the final set (which was too much).  I was surprised how easy the last set (which was only supposed to be 60 reps) was.  In fact I probably could have knocked  out another couple reps but I was just not super motivated to tell you the truth.

Which extends to this run data:

Okay, so this is a cool new feature too.  I went to get my run details and this little HUD popped up.  Very convenient summary data in one snapshot.  Moving on to the long promised run data (look!  a squirrel!):

So my lack of motivation clearly carried over into today’s run.  If you can’t figure out what I mean based on the data above . . . let me know and I’ll extrapolate.
