Recording runs/Pace

Just finished wk8r2. Went a different way and was enjoying the change until I turned about to head back and face a strong head wind all the way home, so when I looked at the info on Map my Run was amazed to see that my average speed was 2.53 min/km . Look out Mo!

On the little map the route was correct but running time and distance all to pot. Sounds sad but I have been keeping a check on the average speed and any improvements as another way of keeping motivated and setting a personal goal for each run. During week 7 I was visiting family, went out for my run and MMR topped after 30sec on 2 runs. Looks like I am going to need something more accurate.

All I want to log is the distance, time and pace. I have read up on the Garmin FR10, all advice will be appreciated. Thanks.

I also found MMR a bit hit and miss. I now use Runkeeper on my phone it works in the same way as MMR, why not ive that a go before you shell out on an expensive watch? There are other apps tto,Endomndo is one I think, but others here will be able to tell you more about those.

Congrats on your 2.53 BTW!!!


Mine just arrived in the post this morning, so can't answer your question yet, but am really excited about trying it out! I did a run this morning so it will just be tested on wandering about for the next 48 hours. :-)


I used MMR and Runkeeper but found both hit and miss, now use Garmin FR10, great but still sometime a bit short or long as it still relies on GPS signal. Also Strava is very good!
