PotD: New Running Record (I think)

by on Dec.14, 2009, under Dave's Rants, Workout Logs

On today’s Pain of the Day (PotD), I ran from my house, to the nearby park, did the absolute longest jogging trail, and then ran back home. I stopped once or twice, and let my HR drop down to 150, before starting again. (Ok, probably 3-4 times).

Google Maps has the distance from my house, to where I hit the trail, at .9 miles. The long trail is 2.25 miles. And, the extra part around the lake adds on .5 miles. So, that’s .9 + 2.25 + .5 + .9 = 4.55 miles. My Garmin clocked me in at 4.16 miles. So — I’m guessing the Garmin cut off some corners 🙂

I don’t think I’ve ever run more than 3 miles before . . . so, this could be a new record for me!

Anyway, here are all the gory details (click the image):
