good 10

had a pretty good 10km run./ felt great, great weather, if a bit warm, some headwinds but no big deal. I kind of like the watch only alerting me with beeps and not giving me the audio alerts Endomondo gave. I sometimes dont check the details when alerted and just keep running without knowing specifics, which I like. Yes, I could have turned it off with Endomondo or changed it from 1km alerts to something else, but I didnt.. :-)

slow 5

Last week was a pretty good running week, and I am still sore from it. Last night I was not able to run due to some issues that needed to be taken care of, so I was happy to get out today for a 5km, even knowing it would be a slow 5.

The skies are hazy, the air is cool, and it looks like the rain is coming but the run was good, especially for a slow run. No discomfort or pain or anything like that - just slow.

great 16.5

had a great 16.5km run today. overall the pace was the fast end of average. Most of it was at a good pace, and the long uphills balanced that out.. fabulous weather, soaked in great rays from the sun, and overall just amazing and peaceful...

nice 6

Just got ina nice 6km run at average pace. Weather was nice, if a bit warm. Just wanted to stretch my legs and get out after a few intense work sessions. Going out for a run is great to calm the mind, stretch the legs, get some air and sun...

lousy run

I had what started out as a pretty good run. great weather, feeling great, started at a good pace and felt good...

Just after hitting the 3km mark, I got a work phone call that was involved. I walked a bit while I talked, but the call required further consideration and by the time I finished the call and got back to running, it was all over. My mind was elsewhere and I just couldnt get it started again. I stopped the run on my watch and discarded the details.

good 8.5

I got in a good 8.5km run this morning at average pace. The first half was actually faster, and the second half slower. I felt pretty good, but as soon as I started up the hill, my legs felt very tired and I slowed down a lot. I think posture was a factor. I haven't really been paying enough attention to it..

5.5 groan

ugh. not as horrible as last weeks Saturday night run but another pathetic Saturday night recovery run recovering from nothing but too much Shabbos food. At least i got out and stretched my legs for a bit.. 5.5 slow kilometers

good 7

had a good 7km run. nothing special. body didnt feel great, weather was good, pace was average. Cut it at 7 just because I didnt feel like continuing. That happens sometimes.

I just checked Endomondo and it pulled the information from my Garmin, so Tzvi can enjoy. It even has more stats now than it used to because the Garmin tracks things Endomondo did not, though I haven't really analyzed many of them yet.

fabulous 12

I went out for a run this morning, with a nice day in between the lousy weather days... I got in a great 12km, at a great pace. Felt good the entire way, and I went a slightly different route -I didn't run Kishon at all - straight up Hayarqon and Hayarden, a loop of Dolev, down through Mishkafayim and out on Road 10 and a short stint on the 375, then back home... was going to stop sooner, but decided to just keep going as the day was so beautiful and I dont know if the next couple of days will present a good running opportunity.

I did think about the fact that when I was training for a marathon I was super motivated and went out like the postman - rain, cold, sleet, hail, whatever - nothing stopped me, but now I love the running but am not motivated to put myself out there in the cold and rainy weather...

wonderful 12

I got a new Garmin GPS watch, one of the cheapest models available, as I just wanted the basic features and did not need anything fancy. I am happy to say that the tracking on it was almost exactly the same (distance markers) as Endomondo. Being that GPS running watches are almost always more accurate than cellphones with tracking apps, the fact that these are pretty close makes me very happy I have been using Endomondo until now, not including the occasional time Endomondo tracked incorrectly. I also have to apologize to Tzvi as I will not be logging runs in Endomondo any longer for the foreseeable future. I still have to figure out the settings on this watch and discover what information it can give me, but in the meantime the basics are very straightforward. It was also great to be able to know my stats without having to either wait for the audio report or having to take my phone out of the armband...

My 12km run today was great. Beautiful weather and I felt good, at an average pace. Sunny, warm, and just lovely overall.

pretty good 7

After a couple days of bad weather, it cleared up and warmed up a bit today, so I took advantage of a clear spot in my schedule and went for a 7km run. Good pace - faster than it actually felt like, and a nice sunny day with decent temps made it a pleasant run

good 7

The run was fine, but it started out cold - colder than I expected, considering the clear blue skies and sunny weather. It turns out, the first half of the run was in the shade, which was relatively cold, along with a nice strong cold headwind in some sections. I was ready to give it up planning to stop at 5, but then I hit a stead stretch of sun and it was nice and pleasant temperatures, so I kept going. I ran 7km, and overall it was nice, at a decent average pace.

distracted 7

not a good run. I was super distracted by the Tiberias Marathon, waiting to see results from my friends running and from Beatie Deutsch (she finished first among the women!). I kept checking my messages and social media and just wasn't focused on my run.. I decided to just quit after 7...

good 10

Today's run of 10km was good, average pace, slightly better than yesterday. Felt good. Muscles weren't tight like yesterday, but a little sore from yesterday.

Good run, good weather though slightly colder than I had expected...

tight 10

after 4 days of no running, everything felt tight, so my 10km run was a little slow, but it was good - not a struggle.

The past 4 days fell victim to a weird combination of bad weather, bad timing, work and personal schedules and some other things that prevented me from running. I was overjoyed when the opportunity presented itself today, and I took it..
