Technology

Was up and at em 1st thing :D pre breakfast run, read somewhere it teaches your body to burn body fat and not just carb's , mob phone check, runkeeper check :D off we go ...

Just a nice little run out and back , there was me thinking I am running slow and easy but them Runkeeper says average pace 6.12 ,what? eh? are you sure? sure enough next time same again 6.10 , made an effort to slow it down but that didnt work next check in from runkeeper you have covered 3.17 km average pace 6.......... then nothing .

Bliddy typical mob went and died on me as i was working out i was on for my fastest time yet for 5k .

I still cannot work out as i was trying to run slower yet seem to maintain what i consider a fast pace ??

I just carried on running back to my start point and did my 5 min cool down walk.

Whilst it is good to know all these stats it is also good not to know and just enjoy the run :D

happy running weekend everyone :D

  • Maybe you wore your phone out trying to keep up with you. Notsoslow_Rob!

  • haha if only

  • That happened to me once too Rob and it's a real pain. I do find my best runs are the ones where I don't even look at my Garmin until the end. Your body will find its own pace and sometimes it's a pleasant surprise!

  • I guess it is just natural progression :) a very pleasant surprise :)

  • Technology always goes wrong at worse times. I always run pre breakfast & glad to hear it means I'm burning fat!

  • thats the theory i believe :D i am going with it :)

  • I'm with you - just hope I don't trip up next run as will be watching my belly hoping it melts away!

  • touch wood no trips so far :D and none in the future . as a rough guesstimate i have lost about 1 - 2 inches off my waist since i started running and just being more careful about what i eat :)

  • Well that's a techy *ugger... You can always use this site to map out your run today.. gb.mapometer.com and if you know your time you can work out your overall pace or 5k pace. That is a really fast pace you are running (wish I could do that) I've just got back from a slow 5k plod and my overall average pace was 9:05 mins per Km... but trying not to get stressed out about a fast face.. its the exercise that counts! :-)

  • yup a real *ugger .i really wasnt trying to run fast or faster . seems it is going to be normal pace ... somehow i need to run slower and for longer ,well that was the aim today

  • So annoying! My c25k+ podcasts sometimes jam or stop for some reason, SO irritating. I just try & keep running but it does kind of throw you. With those speeds I'm afraid you'll have to change your username to 'was slow rob' or 'superspeedyrob':)

  • hmmmm was slow rob sounds quite good :) Thanks Marly

  • I am always better really early while the body is still fresh, sounds like you did really well... well done you :)

  • Thanks juicy :-D I continue to amaze myself ... one thing I did realise is that I really do feel like a runner now :-)

  • woops, I have just read the opposite about burning fat and breakfast.... so much for information on the internet!

  • no, sorry, had misread your "at em" thought it meant ate them :)

  • Phew ... but you are right there os so much info out there
