I graduated a month ago and set the alarm in my phone for 30 mins so I had a marker as i don't like running with my phone. So this morning I decided to time myself to see if there had been any improvement. According to my phone, I have improved by 3 minutes. Now I find this very hard to believe as I am still shuffling along at a snail's pace. Does anyone think that this is at all possible or should I just accept that there was a fault on my phone. I could have accepted an improvement of 1 minute but 3??????
Can my timing be out??????: I graduated a month... - Couch to 5K
I know you said you don’t like running with your phone but I bought a cheap Lycra running belt on amazon and put my phone in that. When it’s on I don’t know it’s there. I then use the runkeeper app (free) which measures and times my run so I know if I’m quicker/slower. Pair it to a cheap (£14) pair of Bluetooth earphones and i get music plus 1km updates on my times. Just a suggestion. Good luck!
