Run Update

I gave blood two days ago, so I will attribute my moment of weakness to that. Half way through the run on the treadmill today I had to stop for just a brief respite, then I worked my way within about ninety seconds back to just under the pace I had been doing. I managed to figure out a bit better how to keep track - while the running is going there is a button that cycles through everything that the machine keeps track of, including miles left, calories burnt, elapsed time, avg time/mile and so on. It was still not clear, however, how I could get the run through of all of these statistics after the run was complete, however, I had the setting on elapsed time when I knew I was at the very end and I ended up with a time of 24:42. Exactly one second less than what I had calculated for my previous run.

Next time I need to keep the pace up for the whole distance.

well shouldn't you take it a bit easier if you've just given blood?

Aye, yi yi! Sounds like a lot of work to me. Is your weakness due to giving blood or the mental exertion involved in figuring it all out?
