As soon as I can figure out how to link my MapMyRun.com page here I’ll be able to share the pictures of my routes here. However, the best part of using that site for my runs is that it gives me my pace and speed (without all that pesky Algebra-esque math)! Tonight’s run was 3.35 miles in 45 minutes. (Yes, we cut it short.) That broke out to a 13:27 minute mile and an average speed of 4.46 mph.
Imagine my shock and surprise when I realized that my running speed is actually measurable in miles per hour and not hours per mile!
And I’m starting to see results from a weight loss perspective too.
My official weigh-in was Tuesday and that was 169.5 which I wasn’t thrilled with, but could live with. Out of curiosity I stepped on the scale yesterday morning and it read 167.5. Now that was a number I could get excited about! I guess there’s something to that calorie counting after all!
We won’t be running tomorrow since we have a commitment after work; however, we will be running Saturday evening. And we may get another run in Sunday evening for good measure.
It will be interesting to see if I get further on next Monday’s run (we’re continuing with the 4:1 intervals) than I did this past Monday (same running route). I would really like to.
