Weekend Run

So, as I promised, I did an 18 mile run on Sunday with my new toy. Some cool things I learned about myself and my new toy. One is that when you upload the data, MotionBased gives you a Google Earth file so you can do a flyover of your whole route, which is pretty cool. Here's what my run looked like: I think that's pretty spiffy. If you click on that image, it should take you to the data page for my run, which has all sorts of cool info, including the Google Earth file. I also learned some interesting things about me. It turns out that my heartrate tends to go down during a long run. It started out at about 160 and trended down towards the low 140's by the end. My speed decreased a bit too, but not by too much - my first couple miles were in the 8:30/mi range and then for most of the rest of the run I kept around a 9:30/mi pace: I also discovered that I burned about 2200 calories in the almost 3 hours it took to run (2:51). Here are my overall stats:

  • Total Moving Time: 2:51:33
  • Total Distance: 18.11 miles
  • Avg Speed: 6.3 mph
  • Avg Pace: 9:28 min/mile
  • Avg Heart Rate: 149bpm
  • Elevation Gain: 960ft
At any rate, it's a fun running toy and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes to run.
