Running the streets

in exhaust •  2 months ago 

I just finished a 6.101km running that lasted about 0hh:37mm:8ss !


I have some time off this week and aim to do a bit more running. I saw a Strava club where people were attempting to run every street in my home town of Bedford. I am going to try to do the same in Arlesey. It is not a huge place, but there are lots of new estates off the main street. I am fairly central, so I can go either north or south, but it is a fair way to the extremes of town. I really need to print off a map to colour in.

My legs were still stiff this morning and it is cold again, but I managed to run all the way. Not a spectacular pace, but then I was doing a lot of doubling back. I think there may be some streets I have never been down, but I did explore some years ago when I was adding to Open Street Map.

I am already getting close to 100km for this year. I have rarely managed that in a month before, but the extra runs I am doing should make it more frequent. I will keep mixing up my runs with some intervals to improve my speed.

Going to be a one-man mapping machine!

This would have been useful when I was doing Open Street Map. Back then I had an Acer PDA with GPS, but it was not as convenient. Now most places are mapped there anyway.

You have uploaded 86 running activities, and 10 of them have been of similar distances (within 10 percent)!
Here are your 5-fastest running activities of a similar distance:

Over these 10 similar activities, you have travelled approximately 62.12 kms at an average pace of roughly 5:54 min/km!
Your latest run was at a pace of approximately 6.086min/km!
Looks like you went a bit slower this time! Remember that it's important to take some rest days, and do some rehab / prehab / strength and conditioning training too! If you weren't intending to go slower, take a moment to listen to your body, and see if you need something. Check in with yourself!

Keep on running!

Nice job! I took a nice walk outside with my wife this weekend. It was a bit chilly, but we managed. It ended up being about 2.5 miles and I tried to keep us on sidewalks as much as possible.

Our cold spell may not last long. I think it can do some good in killing off some garden pests. Just have to be careful of slipping. I know you guys are more prepared for extreme conditions, but we are never quite ready.

Nothing can stop a consistent Runner.

Have you seen the ones where people make pictures with their runs? I could get fit if I was a postman and jogged my route. I need some variety in my running it keep it fun.
