    Check it out!!!

    Oh yea, oh yeah, I'm sooo cool, 10K in a bit over 23 minutes!! I RLZ!!!

    Well, at least that's what my Garmin would like me to believe... damn thing Angry

     

    AT least I fixed the Super-duper heart rate max at 233 bpm...

    When I run I feel like a swallow

    Because you are free like a bird?

    Nope, because of all the flies I eat.

     

      Way to put the hammer down the last part of your run!

        Yes, and great pacing during the part where you dropped the pace sub-4.

        It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

          If Garmin says it, it has to be true. Right? Cool

          Live the Adventure. Enjoy the Journey. Be Kind. Have Faith!

            Sounds like your Garmin had GPS dropout for a while or something?  But from looking at your training log entry, I'm not sure I understand the error.  If you did 3x8.66km should that not be 26 km, so your 3rd split would be about 6 km, not 10?  And 23Tight lippedx doesn't seem so outrageous for that.  I'm not saying Garmin could not have screwed up, but that when I look at your workout it's not clear to me I guess how it did??  BTW, what device are you using?

              Just an easy run down by the lake, listening to some tunes?

                Meh, I hit a sub 2 minute mile jogging on the deck of a cruise ship....barely breaking a sweat.  Cool

                  Slacker. Shoulda worked at it and gone for the great 1 barrier.

                    your 3rd split would be about 6 km, not 10?  And 23Tight lippedx doesn't seem so outrageous for that.  I'm not saying Garmin could not have screwed up, but that when I look at your workout it's not clear to me I guess how it did??  BTW, what device are you using?

                     

                    I calculated 4'5km for the third split for good measure plus 2km home (it's a loop that I run). I guess that the battery of the foot pod lost power. No big deal, I just found it extremely funny. I was aware that something was wrong when I saw the KMs increasing like crazy but it was so darn hot and wet that I just thought "WTF, let's go home, grab a beer and I'll do the math later" LOL

                     

                    The device is a FR60, handier than a GPS in the woods and quite accurate... as long as it's working of course  Smile

                      OK, cool.  Thanks for the additional detail.  That helps mucho a lot!

                        Nice!!  The running app I use usually goes the other way.  On Tuesday it told me I ran 2.12 miles in 29 minutes...

                        I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I AM DOING.  

                         

                        "Mental toughness is built by doing something that is hard over and over again, especially when you don't feel like doing it. Our society has conditioned us to believe that there should be no discomfort, to stop when we are uncomfortable. But the discomfort we feel when we're doing a challenging workout is an important part of the strengthening process." -Jim Afremow, The Champion's Mind: How Great Athletes Think, Train, and Thrive
