Having completed WK6R1 on Tuesday I turned to thinking seriously about actually running 5k so I started to take noting distance seriously. I'm currenly using STrava to calculate distance speed etc but I think the average speeds are completly off. So today I thought I would be clever and use mapmyrun too. I got two completely different results - Strava said I did 5k the other 3.36k?! Even if Strava was right my average speed was 7k for a 5k distance in 35 minutes?! Which I don't think is right.
Just wondering if anyone has had similar problems and if anyone could suggest a good app. I know the most important thing is to actually get to running for 30 minutes but it helps motivate me if I can set mini targets and improve my average pace.
