Had a nice easy “run” with Kathy this morning – I think we both happy not to push things too hard and I got to check out her creek running circuit 😀
Does anyone else use mapmyrun? And, if so, have you noticed that the calorie counter on it is as dodgy as hell… Yesterday I didn’t have an exact time for my run so I put in 1 hr and it calculated around 200 calories burnt. I thought that was mighty low so changed it to 59 minutes and got over 500 calories!
Then today I added in my walk from the other day – it said I burnt more calories if I put in my walk one way (5 kms * 45 mins) than if I put in my whole day’s walking (10 kms * 90 mins).
Also their reporting capacity bugs me. I want to generate a report where I select a route and it gives me my times for that route over time but it can’t do it. It bugs me. Sometimes I look at my crappy Excel running log and think I could make it into the most awesome running log ever — then I realise I do that shit all day at work and I really can’t be bothered.
Next week I’ve got a free pass at the gym in my work building. That’s going to be real handy. I’m a bit worried that I’m going to love this gym – it looked great when I had the tour on Friday, but I figure even if I’m working in a different part of town next month, it’s on my way home so not too much of a hassle. The best bit is that even though they don’t have many classes, they are all classes I want to do – boxing circuit, yoga, pilates etc – at times I want to do them. It’s mighty tempting.
The whole reason I want to join a city gym is that I’m getting slack about going to the one near home. Once I get home, I really don’t feel like going to the gym. It’s much easier to go before or after work.
