I'm in a similar boat. The Garmin's heart rate alarm is helpful for me because I can (and do) ignore it for the most part, but if I start pushing hard it reminds me to consider if I should slow down (nearing the crest of a hill might be a reason not to). It's helpful as a tool, but it's only a tool to help me understand myself. It won't actually help me run.
