    maybe you just ran so fast for that part of the run that the thing couldn't track it! yeah, that's the ticket. :)

    Fine. You win.

    Bad days are killer, and as you mentioned in yesterday's post, they probably will never go away. Like on Wed. I still have days running where my performance absolutely sucks. I get a side cramp on my left side typically once a week. I don't know how to prevent it, but it absolutely destroys my run. I try to push through the pain, but it never turns out well. It's good that you've decided to live with it, because as I've come to understand it's simply a part of working out.

    Glad you gave BuddyRunner a shot. Make sure you've configured the dashboard to you, especially weight for calorie calculations. That web interface is outstanding. You can compare day to day graphs, see progress over a week, or a month. It'll definitely help you see progress, and help you understand where you need to improve.

    It's amazing, I run a lot of hills on my routes. I can see my performance adjust in the graph, and knowing that has helped me to try and pick up pace in those weak areas.

    Seeing progress in a visual form is a massive boost. Keep using it (and definitely get a cheap microSD card for workout tunes)
