I like pushing/testing myself. So, after a 30 minute 6K, sprinted as hard as I could for the last kilometer. The result; sub 4 minutes – 3:56 … wow! Made me think back to last year’s runs … I think the fastest I ever ran 1000m was 3:53, maybe 3:50 … and that was w/ fresh legs and lungs, making this time even more impressive! Wow, indeed!!
falling like a jack knife but the truth to myself
you know it cuts through the bone
somebody somebody somebody come and open my eyes
… certainly wasn’t expecting this! Couldn’t believe my splits, never felt I was running hard/fast. My only self complaint/criticism is that I was feeling so good throughout, I wanted to keep this going for 8-10K, but suddenly at 4.5K knew it wouldn’t happen. At that point, it was either push hard for 6, or shut it down at 5. I chose the latter. But, turning it into a positive, wanted to do another 2K at a slower pace; was looking at 5:30 – 6:00. Again not feeling stressed, surprised myself with splits of 4:55 and 4:51! Sweet!

coming home 2K
I don’t know why my expectations of you are greater than RunKeeper. Maybe it’s the fact that I doled out $450 for you, compared to zilch for RunKeeper w/ its free service! And, I know I was gonna do an in depth comparison, but at this point, I can’t be bothered. I will say, both are great – most of the time. And, while in the grand scheme of things, improperly measuring distance occasionally ain’t exactly life-and-death. When I approach my 1K marker, and nothing happens … and I continue running, and still nothing?! Garmin’s inaccuracies still piss me off! I know damned well I ran at least 1.08 (maybe 1.1)K before my wrist buzzed. No fucking way I ran 5:08 … was def a 4:40 – 4:45. I said it before, I’ll say it again … all I want is to be credited with what I did. It’s what I deserve. AND, it affected the rest of my run – was playing on my mind the whole time. To be conservatively fair, I know I ran at a 4:47 min/k pace … corrected time would shave a minute off, crediting me with 1:07. Do any of you have the same issues Garmin? Do you care?
today’s 14K … record run too …
