>Gears and Wears>Running intervals with a Garmin -- some observations
I've got a fever...
On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
Passion is a rather frightening thing because if you have passion you don't know where it will take you.
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
when I run intervals or tempo runs, the custom workout screen is the only thing I look at: it only has two things on it: Lap Pace and Distance Remaining.

Going metric is a great idea. After all, you'll be running a metric race, right?
The Logic of Long Distance
MTA: Semi-surprised (and almost disappointed) to not get the usual "Jeff, you need to focus more on building your mileage base instead of worrying about intervals." from Mikeymike. True, but I've got a 5k PW that I protect rather zealously, so if I race in a month, I need to "peak."
Needs more cowbell!
I remember at XC Regionals my sophomore year (back in the mid 80's) one of the teams was measuring out the course and marking the km marks. My teammates and I joked about this, but in retrospect, I think it was pretty smart. Who knows how many of my races could have been saved from the usual crash-and-burn if I had found out 1km in that I was going way too fast instead of hitting that first mile marker at 5:05 and realizing that no amount of HTFU was going to save me from imploding over the last 2.1 miles.
