A smartphone running the Mastodon app

Anyone that knows me well can attest to me being a dreadful sports person in almost every category; except for one: running. I’ve been running for a very long time, I could at one point run a 5k in 20 minutes and a 10k in less than 50 minutes. I never really had a plan, I just go out for a run and don’t think about it too much. To the chagrin of some of my friends, running comes natural to me. I naturally have a rather high vo2max and I’m not super prone to injuries so I can just keep running for a good while before I hit my limits.

Because of all this, I never had a use-case for a better watch than my Apple Watch SE. But as I get older I do need a little more hand holding to get my old form back. I finally decided to get a Garmin Forerunner 255S and I’ve been using it for 2 weeks now.
