Picked up my FitBit and reinstalled the running partner app on it and attempted to run 2km in a target of 15 mins. Did it in 11mins according to the app, but Strava logged it as 1.91km in 10:45. Strange, considering both are powered by the same data…
First training entry for a while, I’ve been lacking in motivation recently to post anything.
Nothing major about today’s run, just a quick lap around the park, 2.12km, 5:52 pace, way slower than the 5:22 PB I have.
Well, this is a bit of a surprise, but not too much a surprise.
Regular readers will know I’m a FitBit user and have been for a few years.
You’ll also know that I’m an Android user, and Linux user.
So I just read this article, about Google acquiring FitBit. I’m curious to see how they incorporate FitBit and whether improve it or destroy it….
And a Press Release has just been found in my inbox:
Couple of days away from home and no time to run. Came back and did a 1.5 lap around the park.
Broke no records with this, and at 5:55, was slower than my last run of 5:27. Weather didn’t help though, at nearly 25C
Did another lap around the park, but went clockwise instead of anti-clockwise.
And beat my PB for that way around the park.
Pace was 5:22. Previous PB was 5:35.
Next task is to get to two laps around that park, which should take me to about 4-4.5km.
A quick lap around the park. Felt fast and good, but it turns out I was a 5:27, 0:08 slower than my best time. But the chart looks good:
The pace/HR chart also looks okay. Speed (top line) drops at corners, as expected. The last drop is when I’m turning two corners, and I’m under trees, so the GPS probably dropped out.
The HR (bottom line) was fairly stable between 155 and 170 bpm.
After several days of hot weather, it’s cooled down enough for me to get running again. Did my 3k lap and stopped part way to check out the new Leisure Centre that’s opened in New Barnet. 5:50 min/km pace.
