My Garman died. You need to know this because it affected my run today and lead me to write this entry. I don’t solely use my Nike Running app to track my pace, I usually use it just for music. But since my Garmin died I had to rely on my Nike app this morning. Had my Garmin been working, I may have never even noticed what happened this morning.
When I haven’t been sick I’ve been training pretty hard. Not in distance just in fine-tuning the miles I am running. Unfortunately this week all the cross training I’ve done finally caught up with me and I am very sore. So when I left this morning I wasn’t expecting to break any of my own personal records. Truth be told, I was just hoping I survived.
When I finally dragged my weary butt out there to run I was surprised at how good I felt. So much so that at one point I thought maybe I should do some speed work. Again, I wasn’t looking for anything monumental, I just wanted to add a little bit more to my run.
And that’s when my problem (or revelation) started.
Every time I tried to push my pace my Nike app would lose me. It even crashed twice!
Now I am pretty sure I just need to delete and reinstall my app and the problem will be resolved. But the dreamer in me would like to believe that I was running at a pace that somehow broke past Nike’s ability to track me.
Um … either way, I’ll still be waiting on a call from Nike about my sponsorship.
Well I hope you all have a day where you are GLITCHY FAST (and maybe a little delusional)!!!
