Walking (MapRun) 17:42 [3] 1.83 km (9:40 / km) +50m 8:31 / km
shoes: Mizuno Wave Rider 22 Yellow

Lunch break app testing and next round of entertainment from seeing just how rubbish the Garmin 645 will be today. Not the worst I've seen it, apart from the bit where it had me going in completely the wrong direction and missed out quite a sharp turn and the straights either side... Elevation was a little interesting; Newport has less to fear from sea level rise than most of Dartmoor.

The app wasn't working properly either. All ok on the watch (but less "ok" than it was...), the data pull through by MapRun had a warning message (but worked) and told me I didn't visit any checkpoints at all. Start anywhere was working on the watch, so I'd guess there's some problem with how the 645 specifically stores the information as other watches aren't hitting the same bugs this does.

S&C 10:00 [3]

With Alice’s encouragement the daily working from home challenge is now teaching myself unnecessary languages rather than core strength. It’s definitely more fun and also a bit of a brexit protest. We’ll see how long this keeps up for once it gets harder...

Running 30:13 [3] 7.07 km (4:16 / km) +115m 3:57 / km
slept:6.0

7k loop, not super hard but moving ok. Watch HR well off so kept stopping and adjusting to see if it would start working eventually. It did, eventually - but made the run a but disjointed and somehow cut some of the total distance off a KM 3 onwards was about 50m behind. Because of the underrecording means that my training status on the watch has fallen even further out of line now. Overall not a bad run as time good for not a super effort and got up to the top quite comfortably compared to some runs.

Running - off road 1:31:07 [3] 13.43 km (6:47 / km) +445m 5:49 / km
slept:4.0 shoes: inov8 Roclite 290 Grey

Run with Alice and Mark up Twmbarlwm. Lovely temperature and very occasional drizzle more than made up for the poor views. The cows were nice too, less impressed by the sheep. Stomach not been great this week and was feeling it on the top and coming back down so very happy to have kept it easy today. Maybe the last Twmbarlwm for a while - there are other places nearby that I’d like to travel to once allowed, but I don’t want to do too much long distance driving given how much money I’ve saved in fuel costs over the last 3 months.

Running 22:41 [3] 5.45 km (4:10 / km) +80m 3:53 / km
slept:7.0 shoes: Mizuno Wave Rider 22 LBlue

More annual leave as we get to the end of the holiday year. Didn’t do anything with the morning but after my Tesco trip at lunchtime decided that I was going to get an iPad after all so that I can do things away from a desk with a bigger screen than the phone. Fairly impressed with the efficiency - home at 1.30, bought discounted instant vouchers for Argos on phone via work, ordered, and collected from Sainsburys by 2.10 (via the petrol station). Literally a 30s wait to collect. Thanks covid. First time in Sainsburys since start of March and it is much more laid back that Tesco - no one way systems or clever queue for checkouts. Not sure I like it...

IPad has taken up the rest of the afternoon so even less enthusiasm for running. Got out eventually to do the 5k loop and turns out was running much better even than yesterday. Not sure where the speed is coming from all of a sudden. Wore watch on right wrist today to avoid any repeat of it restarting. For some reason right wrist doesn’t have a pulse so had to swap half way to give a plausible reading. Had exactly the same with the two Garmins.

Wind behind me on second half and pace was good encouraging me to up the effort a bit. Very surprised at 4th k in 4:15 as would be at the very quick end of the scale. End time 22:40 more than respectable, maybe in top 5 all time for this loop.

Running 44:24 [3] 10.08 km (4:24 / km) +145m 4:07 / km
slept:7.0 shoes: Mizuno Wave Rider 22 LBlue

Lacking motivation so same route as Friday, but was moving a bit quicker. Don't have the nice GPS plot with it telling me that I've PRed again on the long segment from Glasllwch>Canal>Allt yr yn as for some reason the watch cut out after the top of the Ridgeway and didn't save any of the first part of the run.

Fortunately, at least, I know length/ascent and KM splits for most - only having to infer for KMs 7 and 8 based on Friday's run.

1: 4:38
2: 4:21
3: 4:30
4: 4:19
5: 4:08
6: 4:53
7: ? ~4:50
8: ? ~4:20
9: 4:12
10: 4:13

Having done some testing, think the reset was caused by having watch too far down my wrist so my hand was pushing down the lap button for long enough for it to kick off a restart.

Running 52:52 [3] 11.51 km (4:36 / km) +155m 4:18 / km
slept:7.0 shoes: Mizuno Wave Rider 22 LBlue

Lost motivation again so a bit of a struggle to get out. Eventually did for a relatively easy 12k around the canal, but turns out the loop is only 11.5k. Windy.

Running 45:58 [3] 10.08 km (4:34 / km) +140m 4:16 / km
slept:4.5 shoes: Mizuno Wave Rider 22 LBlue

Much cooler today, although I guess still quite warm - so went for the 10k loop around the canal at a steasy pace.

May have been a day of work but rather awkwardly had a call scheduled in for 4.30 that I didn't want to drop out of so ended up planning my afternoon around that.
