I’ll be running my next half marathon in just over a month. Training is going well and my distances in my training are up to 14.25 km and I’m feeling great.
Having run many marathons throughout my life, taking on a half marathon used to be a feat that I didn’t think twice about. But after suffering with Plantar’s Fasciitis for 1-1/2 years, more or less, I don’t take any run for-granted anymore. My only goal at the moment is to run injury free.

After 3-1/2 years of great use of my Garmin 305, the battery power on the watchpiece is starting to fade. After a charge, I’m lucky to get 9 km out of it before it dies. I did alot of research into changing out the battery.
Some recommend saving money and buying a battery on eBay and changing it yourself, then sticking it back together with silicone.
Manufacturer’s recommendation is to send it back into Garmin for battery replacement. But, this does not come at a low price. It costs $79 for replacing the battery, plus your postage to send it in.
Please note that these instructions are for all Garmin products including the Garmin Forerunner 405. Read the rest of this post
