Lately I’ve been experimenting with my TomTom Runner watch.
I sometimes find that when I wear my watch out for a run, I am constantly checking it and the run doesn’t feel as good. Is it psychological? Probably.
When I don’t wear it I feel better for it. I run how my body feels. But how far have I run? What’s my time? My pace? My calories burnt? How am I supposed to train for races when I don’t know how I’m doing?
On the weekends I like to run as far as my body can take me. In the evenings I’m limited of time so only like to do 3-4K.
Tonight I tried something different. Rather than pressing go, I switched it to the distance setting of 3km, and instead of the screen showing pace, distance and time it showed just a percentage.
