A banned substance?

I decided to book my plane tickets yesterday.. arrive Friday morning, back home on Monday afternoon, not too much sightseeing in between. Speaking of planes, I guess i'll have to check in my power gels now with the new security rules, or else trust that I can find some in Chicago. Somehow I think with 40,000 runners in the city, I may air on the side of caution.

I think my mileage this week will be just above 40 miles, a nice step back from last week. Today, I ran 8K (5 miles) at a reasonable pace.

Interesting to see your pushing your workouts to the afternoon.

If you don't have time to get some, however, the expo on Saturday will likely have them for $1 each.

Nice step back week.

Maybe you can give me some hints on the Garmin when I get it.

Thanks Ryan.. i'll probably still bring a few gels just in case..

And as for the Garmin, ask away, my biggest tip so far is to use this freeware (well you can donate): http://www.zonefivesoftware.com/SportTracks/

It's far superior to the software given with the garmin training software..
