I’ve been injured lately and not been able to run properly since September really when I had to pull out of the great North Run. I now have orthotics in my shoes to correct the way I walk and run, these are taking a bit of getting used to but it feels good to be out there again.
Anyways I went for a run last night after work and here’s the stats :
6.27 miles in 55:35
Av pace = 8.52 best pace = 7.01 Av Heart Rate = 155 Calories burned = 939
Was pleased with that run, still lots of work to be done.
I’m a fan of gadgets and never go out for a run or bike ride without my Polar Heart Rate Monitor, it lets me know how hard I’m working and tells me how many calories I’ve burnt off ( essential for trying to manage my weight ). I also use a Garmin forerunner to gage my pace and distance travelled when I’m running – another great little device. Its arguable though if any of these things make you run any faster !
