I had a thought while running this morning...okay, once my brain wakes up I have lots of thoughts while running, but this one could actually lead to something :-)
We could use Buckeyeoutdoors to log our total miles. We create a new account and everyone who is contributing logs their miles. We could use the different workout icons for each person. That way folks can log their miles as they go and no one has to gather and report. What do you think? It looks like you could have a team log there as well, but I don't know how that works (maybe Terry knows). If we get this up and running soon we can start with June and see how many miles we can log together before our marathons this fall.
Yesterday after my Fast Finish run (thanks Shirley for putting a name to my unusual run pace) and after a full day at work, I did 10 min on the elliptical and strength training.
This morning I did nearly the same run as yesterday except that at about 3.6 miles I stopped to talk to another runner who I see most mornings. So it is not an equal comparison to yesterday, and probably is why I had more juice at the end of the run. However, the splits went the same way:
Mile 1: 11:28
Mile 2: 11:08
Mile 3: 11:01
Mile 4: 10:23
Mile 5: 9:52
Total - 5.06 miles in 54:20 min
AHR - 156 bpm MHR - 174 bpm
Today is my "2 a day" day so I will do an easy 3 later this evening!
Let me know what you think of the Buckeyeoutdoors idea for logging miles!
