Sunday run: Far and away, by @steevc
15.692 km
88 minutes
Jan. 5, 2020

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.

Run free!

Wow 15Ks good effort - twice as far as my 8Ks on the treadmill just now.

I really like Strava, Garmin uploads to it automatically.

@steevc:

I'm keen to do longer distances. Will keep mixing it up. May try for two shorter runs in the week.

@bingbabe is also on Strava combined with a Garmin Fenix, she did 16 miles this morning and is now moaning to me about an aching bum!

@steevc:

Garmin plus Strava seems to be a popular combination. She would have an easy way to post to Exhaust too :) She's a real running machine.

@ervin-lemark:

Excellent Sunday morning run, bravo! Did you thank the cat? :)

@steevc:

Not sure I want to thank her for that. She does this on other days when I don't need to get up

Sunday was my day off from exercise which is good because it ended up snowing most of the day. My wife and I were able to get out on Saturday though and do a nice walk around our local park. The signs said it was closed, but there wasn't an armed guard keeping us out or anything!

@steevc:

You rebels! It is warm and wet here with some high winds expects in some areas. We rarely get anything extreme where we are. It tends to be the coasts and hills who get that. Take care.
