Week 4? Are we really a month into training? Is it just me or did that fly by!
This week I want to talk about tracking distance. As your training progresses and you start to run further and further it gets harder and harder to measure mileage. At least I think so. I use two things to help me when I’m planning my runs.
- This is an AWESOME web site where you can create running routes using a goggle map interface. Simply zoom into your neighborhood and click and drab a route to see the distance. I love it!
- Nike + iPod Sport Kit
- I love my iPod on runs and this little add on device is a great way to track and even get feedback mid run. You can set time or distance goals and get updates in real time through your headphones. Not to mention when you sync the device it stories all your runs and gives you stats!
The combination of those to things helps me immensely but they aren’t the only choices. I know many runners who swear by their Garmins and others who use apps on their phones. You have to find what works for you. If you already have please share it in the comments!
