how to measure distance?
Hi guys i am now on week 6 but i have no idea how far i am running, what do you guys use to measure this?
thanks in advance
Most will either use an app on a smart phone or, and it requires some investment, a specialist running watch. I use a Garmin 610, but if I'm honest in don't use most of its features and my wife uses a Garmin FR15 which is a little easier on the pocket. Both allow the upload of your running data to Garmin's "Connect" website where you can see your time, split time, a map of the run and all sorts of other things, Great fun, but at a price of course.
"Other manufacturers of watches are available" as they say.
I use Runkeeper app on my phone, I listen to Laura and Runkeeper is in the background so I get both works fine for me
If you don't have any of these fancy smartphones or running watches, you can have a look at Google Maps of the area in which you run and measure it out on the maps. Although I do use Runkeeper with GPS to track me as I run, I always plan routes using Google Maps.
I just plot what I did into mapmyrun.com once I get home which is free and I have seen recommended by others on here.
I use this to plan new routes before I go out - hours of fun!
I use the Nike+ app on my android phone. It does everything I want it too although it has been a bit patchy with GPS once or twice. (And it insists my local Parkrun isn't 5k!)
I use Endomondo app on my phone. You can use it for running, walking, cycling. It is great to see your progression.
I use goodrunguude to measure runs ad it does offroad too
I use mapmyrun when I get home. It gives distance and gradient
I use strata again free and gives good breakdown of segments too J
You could also try "mapometer" which is free
to be running the 5k in 30 minutes eventually (probably not on graduation run). So if you’re using map...
something that will run alongside that without major tweaking as I run. Any ideas would be much appreciated...
my distance using mapometer.com afterwards - how do you do it?
