Well, it has been a while, but I am still running...
I continued up until mid December when I stopped due to the cold weather and the ice underfoot. I then went skiing and badly tore my calf muscle one morning. This was in February. I have slowly nursed the calf back to full health and I am now back to everaging three times a week again.
I have really missed the running during the last 5/6 weeks or so but am beginning to feel my way again. Innevitably my times are suffering and I have added a little too much weight but already i am feeling better for the running.
I got a Garmin 610 watch for Christmas and now use Garmin Connect to analyse all the stats (although today it seems to be down for some reason).
Here's to some better weather and some great running.
My thoughts exactly, but as someone in an IT related industry, it is fascinating to see the interplay of technology and living - I suspect a whole new genre of technology based on HUD's is about to assualt us all.
I guess we will all respond in our own way... for good or ill.
Although, these goggles, at £500 UKP a pop kind of take away the choices for many.
I understand that Oakley are working on a pair of HUD Running Glasses/Goggles that will give a Heads Up Display of your iPhone/Smart Phone running data/stats similar to these goggles they have just released for Skiing...
I think I may try to do a few ParkRuns to test my 10k times, as I wonder if the GPS is a little more acurate in tracking progress over a longer distance. I often notice that my starting pace is erratic and I suspect this is more due to the fact that the start of my routes is often through a wooded area and I think the pace is affected by the problem with GPS signals. So I don't explicitly trust the average pace scores but they are a useful guide.
