I went on my first long run* today with the iPhone. It is GORGEOUS here… beautiful fall weather, great color on the trees, perfect for running.
My plan: take it easy, get the 4 miles in, don’t worry about time/pace, etc. I did a *lot* better this time, telling myself that I would only check my phone at pre-determined intervals. (oh, and btw– I’m still running with the phone AND my iPod Nano. I haven’t properly set up the ipod on the phone yet. That’s another post)
Anyway, I cheated a few times and realized I was going faster than I intended… even under 9 min/mile at one point (my average for a 3 mi run is around 11/11:30). Anyway, my handy-dandy running app lets me export my “stats” to share. I promise I won’t do this after every run, but I find it fascinating. I mean, seriously, who knew that there would be that much fluctuation in elevation in URBANA?
Anyway… enjoy the Sunday stats**

*yes, my long runs are only 4 miles right now.
** this didn’t display like I wanted it to. I was hoping y’all would get the full map, elevation chart, splits, etc right here on the blog. Boo RunKeeper. Guess that’s what I get with a free ap!
