I have been using this app for a couple of weeks now and so far so good. However, I simply cannot believe the time it gave me for my 5k run today, no matter how much I would like to!
Since graduating last week I have been running a pretty consistent 4k in 30min. I decided today to try for a full 5k (which I'm sure I covered because I mapped the route out beforehand) and I was expecting it to take me around 37-38min to run. Anyway, I set my app as usual but this time - I set it to give audio feedback each kilometer rather than every 5 minutes as I've done previously. All the way through the run I was surprised by how well I was doing for time at each K marker and if Mapmyrun is to believed, then I completed the run in a staggering 24.40!!!! I really want this to be true but I simply can't believe I ran that fast!
What makes me suspect it was a glitch is that I know my phone reception isn't great in the country park where I ran - so I was wondering, could this have affected the app? Having said that - the distance it was clocking throughout was spot on, compaired to what I had previously mapped on the laptop at home - so surely, if it was tracking my distance correctly it would have timed it right too?!?
Anyone else experienced confusion with Mapmyrun? I'm quite prepared to accept it was probably wrong. Just wish I had been able to establish a reliable baseline 5k time to work from today! x
