100 Miles

I finally did, I finally ran 100 miles. I completed my 100th mile on Tuesday. I wish I had gotten to this mark sooner, but hey better late than never. It took my 37 runs with and average distance of 2.7 miles and and average pace of 10’04” minutes per mile.

Here’s to the next 100.

First Time Running

On Wednesday, Ellie had her first experience running. I’ve been running for a while now, and Ellie has always seemed interested in what I was doing. So I recently offered the chance to go with me. On Wednesday night she took the challenge. We had a great time, we started off with some stretching, then out we went. She did great! We started off slowly and went basically one and half times around the block. Towards the end she started to hold her side a little bit, but she kept going. I was really proud of her. After we were done, she told me that she wants to go again.

Here is the graph of her run. She went 6/10 of a mile in a little over 11 minutes. I look forward to running with her again.

My First Run With My Nike+

Here is the graph from first run with my new Nike+ add-on to my iPod nano. I only went slightly over 2 miles tonight, because it was late, cold (only 29.5 °F), windy and it started to snow fairly hard about half way through the run.

As far as accuracy for the sensor, out of the box it was really pretty close. I checked my distance and the run should have been right at 2 miles and the unit said that I did 2.05. That’s close enough for me (for now).

I will add additional graphs and updates as I go. There is also a module that I’m trying to add so that I can share my progress, but I ran into problems getting it working tonight (problems with my php install I think).
