March has started off with a bang. A good bang at that! I ran 5K at lunch today and outside of some stiffness in my upper left leg, I didn't have any issues with my hamstring injury. I couldn't even notice anything. I sped it up quite a bit and felt great afterwards! Could this be the end of my hammy troubles?
I bought an android phone a few weeks ago and have started using a GPS app that ties in with my running log (RunningAhead.com) and it's awesome. Those of you with GPS watches, I'm sure it's nothing new to you, but old school me is fascinated with it. Not only does it map out my course and upload it directly into my log, but it gives me the second by second pace as well.
Here is a graph of my pace from todays run. Keep in mind I'm doing run/walks right now. Today's was a 1 min/1 min ratio. Check out those paces during my run interval!
Unfortunately GPS does have it's issues. Apparently on my last lap I decided to run across the water for a bit!
