Day 2 of BIM Active

I can see this site is going to get me on the road in the dead of Winter. I still have to work out some of the in & outs of the site but I do like the charts.

It takes the info from the Garmin Training Center and makes these cool charts. Then you can do a blog entry on the BIM site and it sends it to Blogger for you.

Again I have some things to work out with it but I will use it for a while. I will use only on the outdoor runs (weekends - unless I can get my butt up in the morning).

The Garmin is selling at a great price now. I got mine from about 6 months age.

Nice chart. I love using BIM Active myself. Hey, what happened at mile 3? Were you taking a nap?

I love this kind of stuff.

I want a Garmin, but then I wonder if I'm smart enough to figure out how to use it.

Congrats on your progress Dan and thanks for the kind words about BiM Active! You are a man on a mission...

The service also works on over 40 GPS phones including new Blackberries and uploads your stats wirelessly to your personal journal at the site.

Full disclosure: I work for Bones in Motion.
