Tracking the Track

It’s been a weird couple of days.  I drove to Sioux Falls from Minneapolis and back yesterday.  The one way trip is about 4.5 hours… fancy math boop beep boop…yup, 9 hours total in the car yesterday with a few hours of working in Sioux Falls in the middle = one loooong day with very little physical activity.  I think my fitbit was something like 2,000 steps.  For the entire day.IMG_0314

So I missed my workout yesterday and needed to make it up today.  Luckily, my sons’ lacrosse practice is held in the middle of a running track at a school.  I’ve actually never done a workout on a track before so I thought I’d give it a shot.  Turns out it isn’t too bad.  Not super exciting since it’s just circles but it was a great way to get some fresh air while my guys were at practice anyway.IMG_0316

Bummer is MapMyRun does not like it when you run in small areas at all.  Here is what MapMyRun thinks I did today:IMG_0324

This is what I actually did today.  Yay for running a backup app to track the track workout!  I was just disappointed because I was really looking forward to seeing how my splits actually came out.  I think I might have been a smidge faster so let’s just say that’s how it went down since there’s no evidence to prove the contrary. 😉

One thought on “Tracking the Track

  1. I really need to find a track to practice on. I feel like it’s totally different than running in the streets, and I’m curious as to what I can do.
    That “map my run” thing made me laugh out loud. 0.03 miles in 20 minutes. Yeah… not so much, app! 🙂
