** RUMINATIONS

Let’s Agree to Disagree

I don’t use a smartwatch to track my running. (I’m a little weird that way.) Instead, I use my smartphone with MapMyRun and Strava apps. Before I started using those, I used MapMyRun to map my run routes and my dumbwatch to time quarters (or close approximations). (I’m also weird about my affinity for measuring quarters.)

What’s crazy is the deviation in distances that each option delivers. The MapMyRun app consistently measures distances shorter than the Strava app over the exact same course and time period; using the same smartphone! MapMyRun’s running app even deviates from its own website route-mapped distance: also consistently shorter.

I have enough trouble trying to make sense of the difference between MapMyRun’s and Strava’s apps, but the same platform, MapMyRun? Please. Is that like members of the same political party having different opinions about the same issues? (Oops. Prerequisite for writing a Rumination: No politics. I say it’s debatable. ‘K, gotta fly.)

(102310)

The battles that count are not the ones for gold metals.  The struggles within yourself – the invisible, inevitable battles inside all of us – that’s where it’s at.

 --- Jesse Owens, historic American athlete, 4-time Olympic gold medalist in 1936

Start slow, then taper off.

 --- Walt Stack, American distance runner, cyclist, swimmer known for his DAILY 17-mile run across the Golden Gate Bridge followed by a swim in the bay … and salty language choices

When I’m training for a marathon, I soak in a hot tub every day, and get a weekly massage.

 --- Anne Marie Lauck, 2-time American Olympian with a marathon PR of 2:30:10
