I was really looking forward to doing my next guided run this morning. It was a speed run, which I’ve never done before, so I was excited
But, I instead chose to redo the last run I did. It was a recovery run, which I decided was a better choice since I’m still recovering from happy hour last night
Slept late, had 2 cups of coffee in me, and ran in the heat and humidity. It wasn’t pretty, but it’s done.
Did the speed run a couple days ago. Loved it. Never did one before. Runners out there, how often should you do those? Felt good to be working on something other than just getting my distance in.
Tried a 3 mile run this morning. Meh. Ran about 1:30 slower than what I used to. I have a looooong way to go. But, I used the Nike app and set the distance for my run. I thought it would stop the run once I hit the 3 miles. It said something like, Congratulations! You completed your goal, and then gave me stats of time distance pace. So I started walking home. When I got to my door and stopped on my porch to open it, I hear, “Workout paused. “
It never ended the workout! So all that cool-down walking was figured into my run. Ugh.
Is there an app out there that counts down as you approach your distance or ends the run without you having to manually do it? I wear my phone on my arm. I don’t have a watch to do all that. I just want to be able to hit my distance, end my run, and have the app stop the clock.
Anyone know of anything like that?
We’re in for the 5K and the Kessel Run Challenge!!!
@starbee In a sense, yeah it’s 3/4 of a Dopey It’s a 5K (as a separate registration), a 10K, a 1/2 Marathon, and a Virtual 1/2 Marathon (all for the Kessel Run). The virtual 1/2 Marathon we’ll get just by virtue of training for the actual 1/2 Marathon, so why not?
@nascfan Sounds great! I REALLY hope this craziness doesn’t keep us from meeting up at Disney in April. That would just be nuts!
