Cough, Cough :-(

Yesterday morning after my run, as I left the gym I was thinking to myself how wonderful it is to take deep breaths of the morning fresh air.

Later in the day I started getting a little "tickle" in my throat and started to cough a little.  I had eaten some trail mix for a snack, so I originally thought I had a little piece of peanut caught in my throat or something like that.  However, I kept on coughing through the evening - and now into the morning.

It is still a dry cough - but nonetheless, it is a cough.

I'm hoping that it will pass and I'll still be able to run a 3 miler tomorrow and my scheduled "long" run (it is only 6 miles this week since this is a "step down" week in my training plan) during the weekend.

As for my HRM dilemma, based on the comments on this blog and two posts I put up on the RunningAhead forums, I'm definitely leaning towards the Garmin Forerunner 305.  I have found a few in the $155 - $175 range - which is still more than I was planning to spend (which was $0 because as of last week I was not planning on purchasing a new HRM...).  Since I'll need to spend at least $75 to "upgrade" my broken Polar S120 to the RS100, I may as well just do the jump to the Garmin, right??
