My Suunto is Back

On the last day on my last run in Kona my watch decided to die, completely. At first I heard it beep while I was swimming and then on the run it just gave up. I definitely gave it a beating in Kona (even though I still don’t know how to use half the functions) but I had only used the watch for a few months. However, when I got back to the mainland Suunto was more than happy to fix it even though they said I probably shouldn’t have been pushing all the buttons underwater. OK so it was a little my fault.

A word on Suunto. I know most people have Polar HRMs but Suunto sponsors my coach Mikael so he highly recommended them (and even found me a great deal through Datavision in NYC). Although I think it does all the same things as the Polar it looks much cooler…and that’s what counts, right?

Suunto was unable to fix it but they were more than happy to replace the entire watch and throw in another heart rate monitor. So excited to have it back. In the interim I was wearing the lovely watch I got for my 18th birthday but the pretty clasp was just not made for biking. Plus, you can’t even get it near water. I also like wearing the big Suunto watch. It makes me feel like an athlete.

Going to do an easy flat run today so I don’t aggravate the shin splints. Then meet with alex for some weights. Then running coach is coming over to welcome Veronica Mars back to prime time television. I think he might be more excited about this than I am.
