todays jog/run

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

Well, I took off at a decent enough pace..but couldn't maintain it very long....I jogged a lot....walked some....full speed ran a few short burst....and walked with extra long strides uphill (basically, and did one set of stairs...saw them, wanted to do them, but didnt wanna change my route; so i went down them just so I could come back up :) I tried to keep the route simple so I could remember exactly where I went to track it.

Here's the breakdown

90 Minutes
942 calories
5.69 miles

well, 16 minute mile is better than 18, I that's an average of 3.8 mph. that's just a normal walking pace...however, no way would I get the calorie burn as high if I was just walking!!! And I'm super happy with the calorie burn. I know I worked hard enough and don't really care about the pace as much today. I'll just reitterate that these hills are killer! lol

SparkPeople is weird! When I checked out their "fitness map" and tracked my run (uses google maps), and input my time, it told me that I only burned like 440 calories or something like that! Effers! lol (but, I guess this is what it'd be if I was just walking and not jogging and lunging) Then when I went to "add cardio" and put in my time for a >10 minute/mile, it said 663...Now, I always do the manual input and use what the heart rate monitor says, but I just wanted to see how much it differs....apparently, it differs A LOT!! I think for the fun of it, on my next run, I'm gonna grab John's Nike+ (he never calabrated it) and see what it says. I still trust my hrm more than anything else, but it's just interesting to see all the variations on the same workout!
