Technologically bereft

I’m not sure what the ratio of GPS watch years to human years is, but whether by old age or not, it seems as though my trusty Garmin Forerunner 205 died peacefully in its sleep last night.  There was no way to get it to wake up this morning, even after the power/lap buttons squeeze, the digital equivalent of CPR.

So I just did a super-standard Nassaukade – Leidseplein – Marnixstraat run, with minor detours round the roadworks.  A chilly but dry night; yesterday’s change back to winter time not making a dent in the darkness until the dawn started to flicker during the final straight back down Anjeliersstraat.

5km, 25 mins.

280km remaining.
