Rubbish Run PGR2

Run keeper who I have had faith in went a bit mad , 1k in 2 mins ...I don’t think so😬😬 My aim had been to slow down running the first K I just had no idea what was going on after that . I got hotter and more fed up . R keeper had given me me the finger so I just thought I would run for 30 mins and be done with it . Definitely not going to run in the evenings again its too hot.

Checked phone, dropped it, smashed the screen.

Going to shower and sulk for a while 🤭

Thanks for the warning about Runkeeper. I’ve opted for that as my running app too, but now won’t be surprised if it throws weird stuff out sometimes!

Hope the phone screen isn’t too expensive to fix... 😖❤️

Thanks its been really reliable but the granite walls around the grave yard can mess up the GPS. Screen is a mess 😖

😔 shit happens. I hope the phone is repairable. But you still managed a 30 minute run x

Be gentle with yourself. It will come together.

😩😩😩 It was one of those days. Designed to test us.

You'll have a better day next run day 🌅

Oh dear. I use Strava (as do many on here) and that has been pretty good. The trouble is that all these apps rely on a good GPS signal, so if that is lost for any reason the app loses where you are and has to fill in the gaps when it gets the signal back. I had it happen on one run, but luckily it was a route on footpaths, so once it reconnected the app had a pretty good idea of where I'd run.
