In my last post I mentioned I'd like to dropkick my old Garmin 201. At least that device would probably survive it. I got my Garmin 305 back in the mail yesterday after sending it in for repairs and the %&*#ing thing still doesn't work! Same $%&*ing problem as before, it starts up and then dies after a few moments even though the %$#&ing indicator says the battery is charged. What the %$#@?!?!?! Did they even look at the $%&#ing thing?!
I don't even think it's the same unit, probably another refurbished one, so I'm wondering if my charger is screwing it up. When I sent it in for repairs they said to leave all accessories at home and just send the 305. If it's not the charger, then those Garmin guys just might be a bunch of idiots. I am so pissed!!!
Enough ranting. I rarely complain. It is seriously very hard to get on my %$#@ list and it's a very short list as a result. I don't want to add Garmin to it, so I'm going to see how they respond to this latest problem before I slam them. If it's the charger, it's not really their fault. Stay tuned...
As for today's run, it felt great. Fresh legs from two days off, good energy, and no PF issues. I think I'll be relatively okay for the marathon next weekend, but I'm still keeping my expectations realistic.
