Beautiful fresh morning today with a very light snow just finishing as I left the house. I always enjoy making first tracks in the snow.
The plan calls for five miles at 9:07 pace (I can’t run that slow, I’m sure) but I was plagued with GPS issues again today. A route that I know is five to five and a half miles was recorded as 6.8. Also, the timing seems to be off as it suggests I did it in 32 minutes, but for the correct distance it should have been around forty! All very odd so I’ve raised a support request with mapmyrun.
I know I did about the right distance and the pace felt reasonable so that will have to do for today. I guess for the next few runs I’ll run Nike+ as well so I get a different estimate that doesn’t rely on GPS.
Saucony Omni’s are working out quite nicely although I find that the tongue has to be in the exact position otherwise the inside edge at the top of the laces rubs against the front of my foot.
