Now my garmin uses a footpod attached to my trainiers that I have calibrated according to the instructions and various forums. Today it said I ran 9.3k in 53 minutes.
To track my route I use runkeeper on my S4, today I started them both at the same time (ish) and runkeeper said I only ran 7.8k in 53 minutes. I would imagine that the GPS on the phone is more accurate, so it seems I am not doing as well as I thought.
This does not mean I am giving up, but I do need to improve my stamina and stride.
I may sell the Garmin device and go for a GPS one instead - but
today, the bathroom loo seems to have been leaking (for some time) - so water through the ceiling, flooring up and when I went to open the main window to get it dry (only use the top bit normally) it was stuck so when I pushed it, the frame gave way and the glass broke. So it has been decided that we need a new bathroom suite. So much for the new Garmin.
Still, the phone does the trick and hopefully in the new few weeks i will reach my 10k goal.
I still love running though
