I did my first run since Sunday’s trail race this morning covering 3.7 miles at about a 9:20 pace. I’m not surprised that my pace was as slow as it was since I covered the first two miles at a moderate pace and sped up as I went. According to my Garmin I was tracking below 9:00/mile for the last mile or so. I was more tired than I’d expected to be after a day off from running but I did do a hike yesterday that involved some steep hills. Today was definitely a maintenance run, nothing remarkable to report.
I’ll admit that I do miss my iPhone and although I still haven’t had more than a couple experiences with the GPS tracking apps that reported within the range of acceptable accuracy. I did like the maps they create and the built in compass and iPod functionality on one of them. My desktop support person from work promised me that I’d see a replacement for my failed iPod from FEDEX either today or tomorrow so I’ll live with limited tools until then.
