I finished my sheet. All formulas are in. But I don't think average distance is necessary. Trying to think what would be useful. Average heart rate? Distance ran as a percentage of goal?
Depends on what you're going for with the data.I finished my sheet. All formulas are in. But I don't think average distance is necessary. Trying to think what would be useful. Average heart rate? Distance ran as a percentage of goal?
Interesting. Didn't even think about how HR would be useless without factoring in the different paces in each run.Depends on what you're going for with the data.
-I personally think T+D on a daily basis is an important stat. Helps put perspective on the runs. A 14 min/mile in July is not equal to a 14 min/mile in October.
-Average HR is useful, but only when viewed through a lens (you'd want to separate out HRvPaces). For instance, on a run like this:
1 mile @ Easy + 3 miles @ 60/30 @ 12:49/18:00 + 2 mile @ 80/30 sec @ 12:29/18:00 paces + 1 mile @ Easy (Easy + M Tempo + HM Tempo + Easy)
Average HR isn't going to be informative. Rather what was the HR during M Tempo, HM Tempo, etc.
-I use to track splits within goal adjusted temp range. So for instance,:
1 mi @ WU + 5 x 2 min @ I w/ 2 min RI + 1 mi CD
How many of the 2 min I intervals were between 11:57-12:07 (goal of 12:02).
Thirty minutes before sunset, 83 degrees with a dewpoint of 66 and 68% humidity. I totally feel your pain! I'm trying to convince myself to run since I couldn't drag my butt out of bed at five this morning.Who else is over this weather? I'm about to go run. It's "only" 80 today, but the dew point is 72 and humidity is 81%...
Same concept but many of the gels have different consistencies and flavor profiles (sweetness and such). So not all gels are exactly the same, but they all require "squeezing a packet into your mouth".The gu flavor wasn't the issue, but squeezing it out of the little packet and eating it made me want to gag. Is e-Gel similar?
I’ve tried the Honey Sting waffles. They’re pretty good, but I’m actually the opposite of you and don’t like chewing as I run. I currently use Gu (Campfire S’mores flavor) and like it. I picked up some Science In Sports (Double Espresso flavor) the other day that I’m going to try this weekend.Haha, I mean sports beans are fine and all, but I was just looking for some variety!
I want to try honey stinger products and tailwind eventually too!
