I debated sleeping in this morning, but am glad I chose to open my eyes and start the week off right. With sun.It’s been awhile since I wrote about the Garmin 210 vs. the Nike+ Sportwatch. I’ve been using them both for about six months and can finally say that the winner is Garmin.
Though my Garmin definitely isn’t perfect, the Nike+ watch has two major drawbacks that continually let me down. One is that you can’t enter into interval training mode (for track workouts) from the watch itself; you have to program it before your run, through the computer.
Second is THIS, which takes far too long way too often.
Another minor point is that the buttons for the Nike watch are on the left side of the watch. Assuming most people wear the watch on their left hand, that means your right hand has to move extra far to push start and stop during your run! Am I crazy? Maybe.
Despite those couple flaws, I still think Nike did a pretty good job on this gadget. It’s a good, cheaper alternative to a Garmin that would be a nice “next step” after using a smartphone app, mapmyrun, etc. to calculate your mileage.
By the end of my ????-mile run (satellites never loaded), I was Sweat Woman. It is hot out there!Time to move on to hamburgers.
The most exciting thing that happened on Sunday was that my stomach came
back. I was so excited to eat and Anthony happened to have all the ingredients to make his signature burgers. Fate.I don’t think the burger recipe is actually on the blog. Here it is: 1 lb. turkey, 1/2 c parmesan, 1 onion, handful of parsley, 2 eggs, 1/3 barbecue or teriyaki sauce, salt + pepper, and enough breadcrumbs to make everything stick together. Makes about 8 patties.
Topped with avocado, tomato, sprouts, and… pineapple!
Anthony is very nervous about publishing this on the internet… I am going to say that it is trademarked so nobody can make millions of dollars off of these burgers except for us.The sweet potato series continues. This time we pan-fried them as “chips” which was even more delicious than when they were fries.
Have a sun-sesational Monday!
