Since I started running about 6 months ago, I've always used my cell phone to track my runs. I've used both the RunKeeper app and Nike+ app with different challenges with both. The primary challenge for me is that my GPS signal is weak or dropping mid run. This is frustrating when you are trying to track pace and distance.
Well all of this is a challenge of the past with my new friend. Currently wrapped around my wrist is a Garmin Forerunner 110. I am not a big jewelry and watch guy so I have been wearing this around over the weekend to get use to it and I have to say, we were meant for each other. If feels like we are molded together to produce running gold lol. So beginning today, I'll be tracking all my runs via the Garmin no longer having the issue of how fast I am running or how far my run was.
As for running, no running since last week. Still fighting this cold and I think I'm well enough to attempt a run today. Not to mention I have to try out this Garmin lol.
What do you use to track your runs? If you use your phone, do you run into connectivity issues that impacts your stats?
Hope for a short trail run during the day then a nice easy recovery run tonight.
Hello, thank you for joining me along my journey of becoming a Runner! I've always been an active guy, played sports in high school and continued into adult recreation sports after high school. As I started my family and found a career, the activity level slowly decreased. Well my Fiance had enough of our lazy ways and started on the Weight Watchers program and completely overhauled our daily meals. Step 2 was getting more active, so we decided to JOG our annual Juvenile Diabetes charity walk and actually enjoyed the activity. The month following the charity walk, we signed up for our first official 5K and had an absolute blast. From that point forward I have officially been BIT by the running bug and this is my journey to becoming a RUNNER!
