Eight years ago I started this running malarky, a year in I decided to mark a significant birthday with running the FLM. Whilst training for it I used this technology to measure my training runs:-
Now 5 years on technology has moved on to Mr Garmin, my faithful if sometimes unreliable techno pal. This is great so now not only do I know how slow I am, but how much I am slowing down over the longer distances!
For some time now I have pondered whether to run with or without my techno pal at MK marathon. After last weeks 18 miles where I tried to run a consistent pace and grew incredibly disheartened and very grumpy (sorry RB) when Mr Garmin displayed and an ever decreasing pace I have decided that he will have to stay at home and I will run the pace that I will run!
Feel better for having come to this decision (well for the moment)
