I just ran for 60 minutes!

Using a mixture of Garmin and Ju Ju’s magic plan, I set of on my ‘’long run’’ this morning. Garmin says 60 minutes, Ju Ju says 50 minutes. At 50 minutes I felt good so I carried on to 60. Covered 9.96k. Not bad for first 60 minutes! Felt like a good run too. But windy but rain stopped after first 5 minutes.

Happy Sunday running everyone 🏃‍♀️

Well done! That’s impressive, looks like all your training is paying off.

PS. It says you ran even longer on your graphic- for an hour and 10 minutes!

Thank you 😊 I think that was the warm up and cool included in there too 😄

Ooh you are good. I’m so protective of my (slow!) times that I don’t start the watch until I start running. But it does make me a bit lazy about walking for the full 5 minutes before and after. I shall take a leaf out of your book...

The Garmin doesn’t give me a choice unfortunately. I don’t think I’d start it until I started running either if I had the option 😂

You can actually delete the warm up/cool down sections from Garmin workouts on the Connect web site. Alternatively you can create your own without these if you prefer.

Generally I just find my GPS signal and hit start at the start of a run and stop at the end and don't bother with the programmes.

Leaving that aside though, well done on the time and distance. I was around the 8k mark for an hour when I first discovered it so that is a very good pace you've got there.

Thank you! I’ll have a look into that 👍🏼

It should be straightforward, but you don't need to use the programmed workouts, you can just select run as an activity then start and stop, when you start and stop.

Really well done to you, its a long time on your feet. And isn’t it lovely when the tech tells us we’ve done a good job too 😂

Great run Rhedeg. I don’t capture warm up and warm down time, but then I have always set my alerts for distance as I start to run, probably because I bought my garmin when I was trying to reach 5k post couch to 5k. Whatever....your 10k pace is clearly really good 👏👏👏👏👏👍

in reply to Beachcomber66

Thanks very much! I think I’m going to delete the warm up and warm downs so they’re not included on the actual run.

If you only capture your run time it will show just how super speedy you are !😊

It says 70 minutes doesn't it?

in reply to Tasha99

That’s including the warm up and cool down unfortunately 😔 I didn’t know I could record it without including those until some helpful people here told me. The actual run itself was 60 minutes

Oh yes don't record til you start running as you'll get a better pace 👍🏽

in reply to Tasha99

The Garmin coach doesn’t give you an option, annoyingly, but next time I go for 60 minutes I’m just going to record the 60 minutes as a stand alone run. I’ve learnt my lesson there 😂
