Need for Speed. Garmin is Here

I got my Garmin Forerunner 305 three days ago. I plugged in my age, weight and told it to alert me when I drop below 12Kms per hr average speed and was good to go. I put it to use today when I went for a 66mins run. I threw in some smart fartleks. I later installed the software and dertermined that I had covered some 12K (7.57miles) in an average speed of 10.8Kms/h. 1066 calories burnt. Heart rate peaked at 172bpm. My resting heart rate is between 54 and 60bpm.
If I can manage 12K in 1 hour I think I should be almost there.
This is good. Here is one of the views of the run.

More later. Like I said, this is good.
