Thursday Track Session, by
7.834 km
64 minutes
Dec. 20, 2018

With the month and year coming to a close there is still time to get some extra personal bests. We have been using the month of December to finish the year off with a 5km personal best and it's getting to the business end of our little challenge. In just over a week we will be back at the running track to see if the month of training we have put in has made an impact and we will have a fresh 5km PB.

I'll be posting with the full details of the training we did in the coming days, and I have actually been just watching from a far in this as I am not taking part...I think this will be something for me to look at mid way though next year after I get my Ironman racing out of the way.

But here it is, back to the running track for another Thursday night.

Super cool that you and your partner are shooting for some PBs! I remember how excited I have been whenever I set a new PB (regardless of how it compared to others) -- and "improvement from the past" is largely the only best goal one could strive for.

I'd like to express how thankful I am for having yourself, and others (of varying hobby's and interests) to interact with on here. Keep doing what you're doing, and I wish you all the best in 2019. Just remember, that while you may be searching for a personal best, with explicit importance paid to 'race time' -- each new feat of motivation and pursuit of excellence deserves to be a PB in its own right. Call it individual cumulative distance or time spent in pursuit of ones excellence.

Side note: I'm hoping to connect in the new year about what kind of tools that you yourself find useful for training. I often catch myself with a bit of tunnel vision and focusing on *whatever I * think is right, or the most interesting, approach. Curious to hear if there were things you found useful or interesting in the Runalyze site that you don't find elsewhere?: * Do you pay close attention to VO2 max, and stuff like that?; * Would you like to see more metrics and information re: heart-rate monitoring (if available);

I've almost got enough 'functionality' built out on the site such that people can use it and interact with it -- so I'm considering a pretty substantial population / overhaul of the 'dashboard' page (plus, an overhaul would give me the opportunity to severely clean up the mess of 1st iteration scripting I slapped together to get the site working).


Awesome Matt, I think you've done an amazing job and will have a think about extra functionality. I think as long as you make it as easy as possible to post, while keeping in the "vibe" of Steem I think you will be going in the right direction. It has definitely got a lot of good functionality and I am going to start spreading the work a lot better to try and get more people involved and hopefully building on what you have done so far. I hope you get some time to relax over the coming days and will speak to you soon. Have a great holiday season and wish you and your family all the best for the new year. Regards Vince


The day has only 23 hours and not 24, do you know why? Because one hour is booked always for running. @runningproject quote
