Not a slick start to Janathon this year…
I thought I’d left my Garmin charging over night plugged into my netbook, but it was completely flat by morning. Then in my morning-after muddle I couldn’t remember my log in details for Nike Plus so resorted to Runkeeper. I have not had great success with runkeeper in fact I am now agreed to forget using it altogether after this morning!
I did have company of friends staying for New Year so we trotted out this morning to run the same loop as we did last year. Not a comfortable run. I was not particularly hung-over but had a stiff neck and didn’t feel very sprightly! I wore my new long-sleeved yellow-peril flourescent running top and long legs and was far too hot and itchy.
Runkeeper spent the entire run telling me constantly in a grating american voice that it was pausing workout and resuming workout (without so much of a pause, stop or reason from me) which made me even more hot and irritable… It then gave me stats that I’d run 2.6 miles in 31 mins. Don’t believe a word of it. It is 3.7miles (see Jan 2nd 2011 if you don’t believe me!) and who cares how long it took, we ran.
Oh well tomorrow can only be better and I did get today’s run done before it really poured with rain.
