My SmartCoach app told me that today I was to do a 3 km easy run at a pace of 7 minutes and 35 seconds per kilometer. That’s pretty slow. My SmartCoach told me though that it is a mistake to run faster during this run just because I can. I decided to believe my SmartCoach!
Next I needed an app to tell me how fast and how far I had run in order to
- know when to stop and
- know if I needed to speed up or slow down.
I found RunKeeper! It is very cool. I could set it to tell me through my earphones every couple of minutes how far I had run, for how long and at what pace. Easy!
I met one of my running partners (Can-do Yandeau) for the run. It has turned to winter here so I showed up in full-length tracky dacks and a hoody. She’s Canadian so she came in a pair of shorts and a t-shirt.
I’ve decided to log all my running with RunKeeper.com which is where you can check out my progress!
