Reading one of my mum’s library books. Very intense. Can’t put it down.

200 kms round the yacht club

199kms 203kms

Finally saw my dailymile counter click over into the two hundreds yesterday. I may be slow, but I’m still going.  Most of those kms have been clocked up running laps around the yacht club here in Port Moresby…

I’ve logged a little bit all over the place since doing the Couch 2 5k program last year, such as runkeeper and nike+.  But this year I’ve been logging each run into the dailymile website to keep it all together. Thanks for puting me onto it Hay.

My asic gel runners airing on the deck, the little pouch holds my nike+ sensor chip.

I still use runkeeper to map my runs via the GPS on my cellphone, and if I could when I can calibrate my nike+ chip properly I’ll continue to use that too. The sportband watch / shoe chip is a handy dandy wee thing, with less faffing about then an app on the smartphone … but for most of this year it’s been under-calculating runs (very depressing to see 30 minutes register for less than 1/2 km).  Will try and get it sorted when I’m back home in New Zealand over christmas.
