EDIT: LATEST POST HERE:
It's the last week of the Speed Challenge already! It's gone by like a speedy speed challenge!! 😊
Although life has been getting in the way for some people, we still have had some extremely strong results coming through! Well done everybody, and check out the data here:
Any more results? Let me know in the comments below!
This week I hope to get scientific again - but I need your help!
The RUNNING WATCH has to be for many people their second most important piece of equipment (shoes would be first, I'd think!). These gadgets are so powerful nowadays, capable as they are of tracking your run, pace, heart rate, oxygen consumption, recovery rate, and more.
I'm sure that many of you know already, but I don't own a running watch myself. I think they are too expensive, and I don't like the idea of being able to see my pace all the time. I track my performance using Strava on my phone, and try to run by feel. However, I won't say I haven't been tempted! I can see that they could be a very useful performance tool, and I am of course very fond of nerding out on data 😊
So, people, I'd love it if you could SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCE of running watches in the comments below, particularly with respect to speed work!! Thank you 😁 Next week I'd like to bring it all together and chat about how we might be using technology, and all the other techniques we've discussed, to continue improving our running performance.
💥💥💥 And finally - keep it up!! It's the big push, so let's open up the throttle and see what we can do!!!!! 💥💥💥
Good luck and have fun!! 🤩
