I tried another route today, one that I always used to run. It’s the park by the lake at Lakeside. I always thought the distance was about 5 kilometres, but I guess I was wrong.
Here’s the route and analysis of my run today. I doubt the thing is accurate as the start and stop points are different, but I knew I started and ended at the exact same location. So maybe there was about 200 metres more, making my run about 4.7km. It would make my average speed about 9.9kmh. It would be an improvement over the last run, and I know I ran a little faster.
Well, since I know the distance of the route, I guess I am in better position to know how many laps to achieve the desired effect!
