We were away this past weekend, enjoying the summer with family at Sacandaga Lake.
The first was a quick 4-miler. The next was odd for me. About a quarter mile into my run, my Garmin died. Well, the battery ran out. No charge.
I'm not familiar with distances where we were so I had no way of knowing how far I was running. I did have my phone, though, so when my Garmin went dead I looked at the time on my phone and figured I'd look at the time when I was done, so I could have some sort of idea of time, at least.
I ran down one road to an intersection then turned around and ran to another. Then, back to the camp.
Checked the time: 54 minutes. Maybe a tad less.
No idea of distance.
Of course, being as weekly-mileage obsessed as I am, I tracked the distance when I got home. 6.2 miles. About 8:43 pace. Not bad for an unknown run.
Maybe I should run Garmin-free all the time!
Do you run faster when you just run? I think I might.
