Oh not sure who made this calculator. I have had it for a long while and still don't use it to its fullest. You guys may really like it since I'm not sure it misses anything.
Glad to hear Coach Jeff. I'm not sure where I found it.
I got a good laugh today that made others look at me strange. OR getting blown away in a storm, Coach Jeff running around a monastery and DB being eyed like a piece of meat in a tranny camp.
My runs outside of falling a couple times have been uneventful.
I run the same course 90% of the time. It's mostly side roads. I barley see anyone unless they are going to their car for work. I'll slightly change it up(like it did today) by simply heading north instead of South, which is toward more “action". Most people would be bored I suppose but I really enjoy the dead silence during my runs. It's comforting to me and a great, relaxing way to start the day.
Honestly, the 220 did everything I needed it to do as a runner (except an optical heart rate monitor, which I didn't miss not having at all - I think I will find the heart rate data informative, but I don't anticipate it being integral to my training).
The 645 is attractive mostly for non-running reasons: pedometer/step counter; counts my flights of stairs, tracks my sleep (only moderately accurately); tracks my resting heart rate; has smart watch features (weather data, multiple face options, etc.). Once I eventually buy Bluetooth headphones for it, it will also be nice to have music on the watch for my elliptical sessions. But as I said, that is more of a general tech appeal, not a running watch issue.
RRR -- I have run a few workouts in the GoMeb Speed 4 shoes, and really like them. But after your experience on wet roads, I am nervous. The ONLY rain in the 10-day forecast is on race day!
The 5K is on city streets, so probably smooth asphalt. What do you think? I guess I'll take a couple alternate choices, and decide during the warmup.
