W6r2 disaster - no not that kind!


Finished my run despite the disaster of trying to set “map my run” just before Sarah told me to start my first 10 min run. As I should have learned in week 2 Sarah does not like to be interrupted and takes a sulk, so when I was getting desperate to know why she wasn’t telling me I’d done 5 min or had only 2 to go, I checked to find she’d stopped so I’d to hit play again!! Now what to do? Trouble was I had Sting in my ear telling me “every step you take every move you make Sarah’s watching you”. Yes really!! Bottom line I kept doing what I was told and finished an extended run. Map my run says I ran 8.39k in 30 min!! As I finished the last 10 min Sting said “every little step you take is magic” (I couldn’t make this up!! - he really did).

Ha, to run 8.39k in 30 minutes is pretty fast, most folks here manage 5k in 40 minutes.

No - really. This was what map my run said. I like when it lies better than when Sarah lied to me early on “you can do it flower!” Bet I’ll be disappointed on my next run!!

I have just deleted strava Michael Johnson threw a tantrum and left me, I was a traumatised mess 😂

My daughter and I run the same run, at the same time, side by side.. only difference being she runs on the outside of the pavement and I run on the inside. We start our Garmin watches by counting down 3..2..1.. now. And stop them at the same time. Strava reckoned that I had done 2 miles at a pace of 12:52 a mile and she had done hers in 12:34.so annoying !! We tend to just stick to what it says in Garmin Connect -at least it is always the same for us if we run together


What is map my run?

Another app. Not very accurate I guess!

A number of people have had accuracy problems with MMR recently. Strava seems like a better bet on the app front generally, tho amanda2463 has consigned hers to a steaming cowpat :-)

I was on the same run yesterday and my strava messed up C25K as well but hasn't happened before maybe there's a glitch?! 😃 Well done anyway you did great! X
