Given itís Friday and if youíre like me by this time of the week youíre probably just looking for a quick read. So Iím offering you a quick tip that I use to ensure I spend less time waiting around, and more time working out (or being lazy, as it may be).
This time of year I now have weekly bricks that revolve around an initial trainer portion, and then segue into the run. I do the trainer inside Ė and the run outside. The challenge is that if I were to wait to turn on my Garmin GPS watch after I was finished with my bike, Iíd be waiting around outside as it searches for satellites. While sometimes this happens in less than 30 seconds, there are some dayís that it decided to take a spring break. Thus all that time waiting around starts to defeat the purpose of a quick transition between bike and run, where Iím attempting to mimic race conditions.

My window placing habits actually grew out of my very low desire to stand outside pre-run in the middle of winter when itís single-digit temperatures outside. This way, I simply place the Garmin device in the window and turn it on. By time I get around to running, itíll magically be ready. Itís almost as exciting as watching caterpillars grow into butterflies.
Even if youíre not doing a brick, I find that if I stick it in the window before I get my shoes on, locate my nutrition/water bottles, put HR strap on, etcÖ itís more than ready once I am. At which point I simply head outdoors and run, no waiting required.
