So lately I have stopped using Endomondo to track my runs because, I hate having to carry my phone with me, it brings with it so much extra admin – I don’t want to carry my phone with me or my iPod (going through a I don’t run with music phase) and I don’t want a back pack to slow me down or irritate me by simply being on my back.
I know you are all thinking to yourself, “Get a workout case to strap to your arm Justine” but I hate those things, they make anyone who uses them look like an idiotic gym bunny who takes themselves too seriously, that and I have a Blackberry not an iPhone, and they don’t arm band cases for Blackberry (or maybe I just haven’t looked around because of the whole “looking like a gym bunny” issue). The whole point is I am no longer tracking my runs and I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing.
The question that really needs to be asked is are the fit just inputting their workouts manually and linking it to Social Networks to let everyone else know that they have gone for a run, meanwhile they are REALLY sitting on their couch with a bag of chips watching the Ellen Show?
I mean if you don’t track it, did it happen? Is tracking a run vital?
What are your thoughts? Yes or No on tracking runs? Also what apps are you all using? I would love to hear from you in the comments section!
