Post-Run Report: March 15, 2017


Today was a surprisingly decent run with a pace I’m once again happy with. This is the second run in a row that I’ve completed without looking at my pace during the rune on my fitness watch, and once again, it turned out to be a nice run. The pace is better this time than the last three runs, which also makes me happy.

The best part: I felt good throughout the entire run, had no pain in any joints or muscles, and after my shower, my legs felt normal. Just this morning, I was wondering how long it will be before I can run and still have my legs feel normal afterward. It looks like that point is now.

Today also marks the last time I will use my Fitbit Surge unless something bad happens to my new watch: the Garmin Fenix 3 HR. I decided to move on to a new fitness/smart watch after the battery on the Fitbit started to die after just two days. The Garmin promises to have a more robust battery as well as having more smartwatch features, apps, watch faces, etc. I will do a review of this watch after I’ve had some time to use it more.

As for me, the run felt great, and on the push ups front, I was able to do a comfortable 65. It’s nice to have those numbers start to creep up again. All in all, great running day, and I now look forward to Friday’s run.
