This week, for the first time, I used iMapMyRun to track a run.
The pause function didn’t work, which was annoying. I recoded two separate workouts, one pre-traffic light and one post.
What felt like a decent 30-35 minute run? Was 3km in 19 minutes. Sigh. (I kinda made up for it on my next one – 15km in two-ish hours.)
Knowing that I was measuring my progress definitely spurred me on. But my low data cap and my approach to exercise (keep running fun, basically) means I probably won’t be busting out this app all that often.
