Training Toys

A Day in the Life1 Comment

Weather is warm. I am still fat (fatter than I would like). Got a new toy to measure my progress on runs. I need to get my speed and distance up over the course of the summer. It gets too easy to keep the same pace for weeks and weeks. So I got one of these awesome Garmin Forerunners. Its got a GPS sensor integrated right in. It tracks your heart rate, speed, distance, calories, heart rate, path, etc. When you get back home you can plug it into the computer and it downloads all the data. You can see how much distance you covered for the week, how your pace is doing, and anything else you want to analyze.

They also have this web site that you can post your data to automatically. Then you can share your routes, your progress, etc. Here is the link to my profile.

    So it looks like you must have gotten ten feet taller during the run (presuming you started andd ended at the same place):

    Elevation Change Total (ft)

    Total Elevation 1,515

    Elevation Gain 762

    Elevation Loss 753

    Net Elevation Change 10

    Keep that up and you won’t fit into the house much longer…
