My Sunday lie-in was spoilt by the cat shouting for food this morning. As it was a little earlier than I wanted to get up I had by breakfast, which I normally do after my run. Maybe that gave me a little more energy. I reasonable morning for running as it was dry and not too cold. Still some mud and puddles around.
This is my first run logged with Strava. I have used Endomondo for years. When I started running I looked around for an app and it was on special offer then. It offers good stats, but the social side has been lacking. Strava seems much better on that front as it is widely used. There is a Steem runners 'club' with some familiar faces. I like that you can say which shoes you used on each run to keep track of how far they have been, but mine already have lots of km. I need to look into some of the other features. It looks like you have to pay to get training plans, but then I think I had to pay Endomondo for that too.
I was able to automatically get this run into Exhaust with their Strava integration. That saves a little time. I know @mstafford is also working on an @exhaust mobile app. I hope a lot more runners will try out this service.
I went for my longer run as I was feeling good. There were times when it was feeling fairly easy and my legs were okay at the end. I hope to do more weekly distance this year with a target of three or four runs totally around 25km each week.
There were a few other runners out there and a lot of cyclists around Norton and the Greenway. I expect a lot of people are setting new goals for the year.
