But that annoying friend you love but want to punch.
Today’s treadmill run was planned for 1 mile steady, 3 mins faster, 1 mile steady. Plus an extra mile flat out in memory of my friend who passed away the other week. (Our club have all done a #mileformarcus today and donated to the charity account his family are supporting).
Technology had other ideas.
Ok. I’ll just have to monitor it on the treadmill display.
Treadmill begins cool down mode.
Push through the 3 minutes and take a snap of the finish screen.
Try and start it up again. I’ve managed to FULLY reset it and it needs a gps signal to be useable.
Sod the second steady mile, let’s go full on in and get the fast mile done.
Off I go. Gradually increasing the pace so I felt I was pushing it, but could keep it going for a full mile.
0.99 miles – ‘user stopped workout’.
So I’ve had to admit defeat with technology.
And as for my mile – it’s the quickest I’ve run this year, and yes it’s 0.01 short but I think Marcus would find that as funny and frustrating as I do – and he’d point out the new pace benchmark I’ve given myself.
