2007 will be the year of my first marathon! To support that I’ve been equipped with new shoes and with what’s probably the most advanced piece of self-monitoring equipment I’ve had.
The Timex Ironman Triathlon Bodylink comes with heart rate monitor, GPS for speed & pace, and an optional data recorder to upload information to my PC. Everything works fine, and the most amazing new feature comes from the software tool SportTracks!
This software doesn’t just help you log how far you’ve run, at which heart rate etc., etc. It also shows you where you’ve been by either using a map or a Google Earth satellite photo.
So today has resulted in being 17km closer to running a marathon – the blue line in the images is my route from today. This is going to be a quite hard, and I wonder if Tor and Peter meanwhile started their marathon training. Maybe I better calculate how many kilometers I really need to train before I finally have my first attempt at running 42,195 kilometers.
