Distance: 7.19 miles

Notes

Shoes: Mizuno Wave Creation
Weather: Rain, 70′sManually entered…. This run felt great… I started out to run 3 miles, but I felt pretty good, so I thought I’d extend it to 5, about 100 yards into Loantaka Brook Reservation, I thought, why not 8? It turns out that it was short of 8, but I didn’t really know the distance.

I felt joy as I ran. It was really, really, great.

After turning from Garfield to Woodland, I turned it up, and probably cranked out a 7:00 – 7:30 last mile.

I hope this is indicative of what’s to come.

Notes

Ugh so hot… I intentionally went very slow with a distance goal in mind… I stop 4 times to play with the gps… and see my pace… I never felt like I couldn’t go faster, but I felt that standing still outside would have wiped me out. The weather was unbearable. It was ok in the trees, but once I got out to the road at about 3 miles, it just felt heavy.I thought I would probably dehydrate, or otherwise cause myself detriment, so I took advantage of a shortcut back home… cutting the run in half.

On the good news side… my new sneaks are everything I was looking for. The fit well and provide nice even cushion. Real Caddilacs.

Run 10:34 am

Parents are in town, so I got the chance to get in a run. As per usual my right hammy and my left kneecap both complained a little for the first 7 min. After about 15 min. I felt like the engine was primed. Obviously, I don’t feel “fast” but I did get comfortable, and felt like I was cruising.The temp is 75 Deg. and 73% humidity and climbing. Sticky, but not too bad. It rained in the last 1.5 mi. which was refreshing…

real? 7-17

I got all the data from the phone finally, so I patched it together manually.This site is really neat, but really it doesn’t offer much more that I could put together if I could get access to the phone data.

The on-phone application is pretty much useless. It beeps, or vibrates to tell you information about pace, but it didn’t seem real stable (my run was cut into 3 pieces as the app closed for various reasons).

It doesn’t show real-time pace (probably because it fluctuates too much).

Anyway… I find it usefull overall, since it’s the only wat to get the gps data from the phone.

The realtime features might be good for web-based tracking…( I see a future where we’ll be able to pinpoint our kids by the phones in thier sneakers- or something like that). So much for reading thier diary being the only moral dilemma a concerned parent faces….
