Watch Problems

OK,  I ran an easy 4 miles last night.  Quasi-tempo run.  First & last miles were right under 9min, and the two in the middle were under 8.  Didn't want to do too much, because I have 14 to do tomorrow morning.

My GPS watch, however, was not helping.  Recently, during the past few runs, it's popped up a little message about it running out of room to store data.  The message only lasts for a second, and it's difficult to read when, you know, I'm running.  I've been assuming that it's been deleting my oldest runs to make room for the current data, and just warning/informing me about it.

Apparently, that is not the case.
It's just been telling me that I need to go and manually remove my old data before it runs out of room to store my current stats.  That critical moment occurred last night at the end of mile #3.  My watch popped up a new message that said it was out of room, and it continued to display this and beep every 2 seconds.  I didn't want to stop during my last mile and try to figure out: A) How to delete old data, and B) What data I was ready to delete.  So, I just kept running.  And beeping.

It was kind of annoying.

Anyway, after I got home, I figured out how to clean up old stats.  It's tedious, but I made some room.  Will just need to keep on top of it from now on.

Wish me luck tomorrow!
