45 Minute Tempo Run

Today, being Thursday, is another tempo run.  Today’s run was 45 minutes, and I covered 4.85 miles in that time, and then walked for 5 minutes to cool down.

Overall, the run today was very good, and I was able to increase my speed to 7.2 mph on the treadmill. 

I still think that I need to try to recalibrate the footpod since there is a good 1/2 mile difference in the distance traveled between what the treadmill shoes, and what the Forerunner 310XT shows.  But I will say that I am very happy with the watch, and I love the GPS capability when I am outside since it allows me to track pace, and distance.  What’s also very nice is that I can see my route displayed on a map when I download my information to the Garmin online dashboard (Garmin Connect).
