I don't have a Garmin. I don't know if I even want one. I like just going out and running. I usually know the distances of all my routes by heart and I just go. On the chance that I do run a new route I use Gmaps Pedometer to find out exactly how far I ran.
But is that program really that accurate??
Yesterday I was trying to map out a 2 mile loop and the lines that Gmaps was mapping just didn't seem right. I run on the sidewalks...not down the middle of the road. So I remapped the 2 miles manually and found that in fact the distance previously mapped was a little short. Now I am questioning if in fact all my distances are actually what I thought they were!
This morning I may have run 5.1 miles...not sure how accurate that is!!
5.1 miles/40:35/7:58 pace
This is my last run before the Pink Ribbon 5k Run Sunday for Breast Cancer. I will be racing this and my mom will be walking it! We have done a few races together and I really like it!
Hope everyone has a great weekend! And Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!!
