Squeaking it in
I squeaked it in!
Sunday I ran 8.6 miles or so my iPhone said, my Garmin died after 1.7 miles. I had put it on the charger before I went to bed but apparently I didn't get the connection right. Annoying.
This morning I ran 6.3 miles easy pace again, I used both my Garmin and the Map My Run app just to see how they compared. I accidentally saved my activity on the Map My Run about half way through and had to start a new recording, but it seemed that the Map My Run app was about .3 miles ahead of my Garmin by the time I got done with my run. Annoying. So I wonder which one is more accurate?
I am going with my Garmin.
The last couple of runs have felt really good and I ended them feeling like I wanted to keep on running. More, more, more! As tempting as it is to keep running I know it isn't the smart thing for my leg. Boo.
I am so happy with my progress though. Feels so good to end runs that way!
I also volunteered at the Big Sky State Games at the Track and Field events in the first aid station. All I had to do was hand out two band aids and wash off a girls hands because they were sticky.
I had been VERY VERY tempted to do the 10k. I just wasn't sure I could take it as an easy run. I was a little afraid that the crazy competitor in me would push too hard and hurt my quad again. Although after I saw the 10k times I could have run at a fairly easy pace and still won the gold medal for my age group. oh well.
Anyone else doing the Ragnar in Colorado in September?
Garmin or Map my Run app on iPhone more accurate?
