If she'd contemplate doing a "which website should you log your training on for the best analysis and the support of a great community", that'd be nice ;-)

I think you'll find that VLM is a tad long, no matter what wearable tech you have.

In actual fact you may find the distance you actually run is the same, no matter what tech you wear.

Train appropriately.

The real stinger would be if you'd logged your long runs with one of the dud trackers and thought you'd gone up to 21 miles in training but had actually only done 14 miles.

It's a bit of a badly described article though (no offence heaveyweight!). If I was looking at getting a FR35 I'd be reading that as suggesting it couldn't track properly, when in fact when it is used as it should be (i.e. in GPS mode) it would never in a million years record a marathon as being only 17.8 miles long.

Obviously, anyone who uses a fitness tracker for running a marathon using steps only (unless they have validated it with stride length measurements or use a calibrated foot pod etc) to track distance would also need their heads examining. Though that doesn't mean a lot of people aren't in the queue for head examinations...

Got something to say?
