Today I worked out a route on gb mapometer which would come to 3.18 miles. It was quite convenient with knowing where to start and stop and just a little bit over 5k to account for the different measurements between mapometer and endomondo. Set off down the lanes, saying hello to the cows and sheep and shetland ponies, was feeling good with the run today. (Note: I did not have wine last night and also had two of those Belvita breakfast biscuits about an hour before I set off. Maybe this is better than an empty stomach) Oh and I was really grateful to a lovely lady in a car who pulled right up on the bank and in the mud, so I could run past without going through a giant puddle. She wasn't even in a 4X4, so I was really really thankful. Anyway I came to what I think should be the end of my run, take a quick glance at endomondo and oh no, I'd only done 2.41 miles. So I kept on going to the end of the next road, where I had to stop to cross a quite busy road. 2.78 miles in 34 minutes. Average pace 12.13 min/mile which is a lot worse than my hilly route. Anyway it wasn't until I got home and looked at the endomondo map that I noticed it had me starting a lot later on the route than I did. Anyway I mapped what I actually ran (with the extra bit) on mapometer and it's now saying 3.3 miles. I mean what is going on? Endomondo is like a particularly nasty coach telling you you're not doing very well - just to make you go faster! What if I'd injured myself from going that step too far? If i told Laura, she'd be very cross with endomondo for that dirty trick! Anyway I suppose it doesn't matter how far I've gone. I ran for 34 minutes! Yay! 3 more runs till graduation and a lovely lovely t-shirt. A week to decide on a colour!
