This week is my first week over 30 miles since mid-February, and it felt great! Now the miles continue to climb until July, when I run the San Francisco marathon.
I have a question for you all. What tools do you use for tracking all of your miles? And how many tools do you use?
I ask this because currently I use SportsTracker on my desktop, and also MapMyRun.com. Why two? Well, I started out using Sports Tracker, but then started using MapMyRun.com because I could then attach my workouts to the route that I ran. (I had an HRM, but not a Garmin at that point.) I hated using two different applications, but didn’t stop using Sports Tracker because I like the reporting tool that generates the summary below. However, it lacks the options to link mileage with my equipment. So I would have no idea how many miles I put on my shoes without MapMyRun. You see the dilemma?
This past week I started using Garmin Connect so that I could really see my heart rate and speed broken down. In the past I was not able to use it because I didn’t know tools existed to download the Garmin on my Ubuntu system. (I am not a Microsoft Windows user.) However, this past week I took the time to figure out a way to download the Garmin. However, there is no way to track equipment usage with Garmin Connect.
Yikes!!! Now I am storing my runs in 3 different places. (And lets not forget my Facebook posts.) I guess that makes 4 unless you count my new Facebook Fan page, which would mean that I update my friends and fans…5. And, AND, I have been thinking of giving DailyMile.com a try. Oh my God, a 6th!?! I really need to get this under control. I want to store my runs, equipment usage, and also be social about it. So, again, my question. What do you all use?
