Anyone on Mapmyrun?😊

Anyone on Mapmyrun?😊

Hi everyone, I'm doing ju ju's 10k plan as you know and have just done my 7k run. Yay...

Im using Mapmyrun though not Strava as I wanted the voice prompts for free...but I'm alone on there. Does anyone use Mapmyrun to record their runs and would be happy to befriend me?😆

The c25k club on Strava was nice because you could see yourself on the leader board and give kudos to people you know. Im missing that a little I guess...is there something similar on mapmyrun.

Thanks😊x

well.....if you enjoyed strava but want the voice prompts then you could use endomondo which i believe also gives voice prompts (Under Armor own both Endomondo and mapmyrun, so might able to use the same login). Then you could use a website called Tapiriik (https://tapiriik.com/) which will sync your runs to strava . So once you have finished your run and uploaded it just go to the tapiriik website and click sync or you can pay a few dollars and will automatically do it.

I use this website to sync all my runs to everything else.

Hi Ben, hubby helped. He downloaded the runs by creating tcx files on Mapmyrun which we uploaded to Strava.

The password I use on mapmyrun didnt work on Endomondo but now all my runs are in one place which is great.

Thanks again for your advice.

Good thanks..

I was tired by the last km, and thought I would steady up a bit.Then a lady in trainers and a tracksuit crossed over and was in front of me. But she was speed walking 😯 using her arms and everything😆...so I was catching up with her very slowly and drew almost level. I thought she would step aside a bit ..but no...I had to excelerate to go past and then was worried about having her clipping at my heels...so put on an extra spurt.

I would have liked a steadier finish but feel positive about that 8k next week.

How about you SaskAlliecat? Still making ground...

Haha, those darn speed walkers! I did a full walking marathon a few years ago and remember passing some runners on race day, much to their chagrine. It is much easier to keep going with a steady pace speed walking rather than running, I found 😆. I am glad to be back to running though. I always felt so goofy when I was working on building speed, it is quite an unnatural looking gait 😜

I'm back on track with juju's plan. I missed a run last week but till ran 7k on Sunday which felt great. I did a speed workout from the Pace Academy Challenge on Runkeeper for my 4K run on Wednesday. I ended up running the intervals too fast since I forgot my garmin and Runkeeper wasn't telling me if I was on pace or not so went by feel (I have no natural feel for pace 😕). My lower back was a little stiff but feeling good today. Will get out for a 5k run in a bit and am really looking forward to the 8k on Sunday. I'm glad things are going well for you this go around.

Enjoy your run. 😊

I saw that RFC has joined a racewalking group this week. She said is was good fun.

I still have my short 3.5k run of wk3 to do. Either Sunday or Monday I think.

We are getting there....Oldfloss is doing this plan with us too. She has already run 10k a few times but not since her calf injury I think.

Happy running😊x

I saw RFC's post about joining a racewalking group. I have found training for the walking marathon has improved my stride while running this go around. We had 7 hours to complete the 42.2k. I like to overplan so I trained to finish in 6 hours to ensure I finished in the allotted time. To improve my speed I had to shorten my stride and increase my turnover rate. I find when I run now, I have retained this shorter stride and do a mid foot strike instead of heel strike. I haven't experience any knee or shin pain this go around (knock on wood) just some tired legs and a tight lower back/pelvis which has become my new normal over the last year and a half.

It's nice to know OldFloss is with us on the plan, it will hopefully remind to keep it slow and steady. I find my legs want to go so much faster than my body. I just finished my 5k run and I found it quite challenging today - not sure if it was my pisspoor nutrition yesterday, the 2 1/2 hours of sleep I got last night, tired legs from Wednesday's run or all of the above. I'll need OldFloss in my ear on Sunday telling me to go slower 😆

7K - well done! I thought Strava did give you the voice prompts, but looking at the settings I think it's only for when you stop and start and pause. I thought I remembered Mr. Strava telling me when I'd clocked up each km, but perhaps that was Mr. Endomondo, before I broke up with him. Sorry, but MapMyRun is too flaky for where I run.

Ha, thats ok Anniemurph, thank you. I think maybe the Premium Strava that you have to pay for may have the voice prompts.

Hubby has fixed it for me so I can run with Mapmyrun but still upload to Strava afterwards so all my runs are there in one place...plus I can share with the c25k club on Strava.😊x

Morning Jan,

Is there a list of folk on Strava in this forum?

Reply

Morning Ted, not a list as such, but on Strrava if you look at the clubs there is a Nhs c25kers club (245 members) which is the one many forum members are using and sharing.

You may not recognise all of the names but some folk use the same avatar, and if you click to follow someone they can accept.

Maybe after you join, write a message of hello and lots will contact you I'm sure.

See you there!😊xx
