Run like a Robot

Filed under: Running — levyang @ 10:51 am

The Garmin is such a fascinating toy that I’m willing to be its guinea pig for the race this Sunday.  With Garmin’s help, I’d like to check my fitness level and see if I can do a steady 5:30 min/km pace throughout the 25K distance🙂  Uphill/Downhill, steady 5:30.  Wish me luck.

  5. Thanks Philip, I will need it. I’ve done it in a 15K before, not sure how my body will react if done in 25🙂

    Javy,
    Sure, by all means. Caveat though, I haven’t done this before, so feel free to surge ahead when this old lug begins to tire🙂

  6. Levs,

    I have not ventured into 20k territory myself😛 And besides, you’re the faster one🙂

    See you sunday then!

    You should wear a pace baloon!

  7. You can set tartet minimum and maximum paces in your garmin too, so that it will tell you to speed up or slow down if necessary. Good luck!

  8. DATC,
    Thanks for the tip, will probably let Philip set it up though. I get intimidated with technology🙂
