Memories of high-school cross country albeit without either the pain or the suffering associated with both poor training and poor coaching.
The photo at left shows my first long-distance run in prep for the 2010 Big Sur Marathon.
A free iPhone App called TrailGuru logged my run using the iPhone’s built in GPS. The actual “track” I uploaded is here.
Clicking the TrailGuru track link will display several useful stats [to me 😉 ]associated with this trail run.
Scrolling down the TrailGuru web-page, you will see:
- elevation profile
- speed vs distance
- pace vs distance
Assuming I maintain this regime of doing both Crossfit HQ & Crossfit Endurance workouts plus a weekend Long Distance Run with significant elevation gain, I am all but certain I will be able to complete the 2010 Big Sur Marathon, baring usual disclaimers of illness, injury or cramping.
