Just under two miles tonight with my running group. It was COLD (but at least it wasn’t raining). Other bonus: got to the bus stop to go home and got a big smile: my DD was at the same stop on the way home from horseback riding
Yeah, if I'm doing anything serious I wear my Garmin instead. But unless I'm doing serious miles or races, I don't waste the battery recharges on it. Can't remember if thats better or worse that constantly recharging, but I know they have a finite life.I have the free version of RunKeeper, too. The splits are pretty rudimentary and there's no real way to analyze the data it's keeping, but at least it has the basics. I particularly like the shoe tracking. I have RunKeeper set to track miles and FitBit set to track kilometers, so I don't have to switch back-and-forth within the apps.
Well guys...today was it, the last day of me running consecutively every day since the end of March.
Tomorrow starts my Galloway Training for the Fairytale Challenge. Today I did my normal workout which was a little more then a 5K, in fact I did it faster then I normally do.
Since tomorrow is a “rest” day I will not run. I will probably do some form of workout though, such as lifting weights or something. To keep me from missing out working out on the “rest” days. As long as I am off my feet in terms of running on “rest” days that is my goal.
This leads me to my final pre-training question. Normally I run at about a 13:30 pace. Which I intend to keep for my Tuesday, Thursday maintenance runs. However, for my long runs the program specifically tells me to run 2 minutes per mile SLOWER then what I expect to run on race day. Is this a practice that is normally followed on long runs? Or do I just keep my current pace?
I feel inclined to follow the plan on this, but not sure if it’s the right way. How does everyone here handle long runs?
EDIT: I may run the long runs at my normal pace, unsure though.
