10.2 miles this morning enjoying the breeze and pretty views off the lake. I was excited too because I discovered some random hills along my route. Gotta love that, right? I am working on being more of a hill seeker. Both in running and in life. Whatever that means. I know, real deep right?
Anyway, speaking of mileage I thought I’d do a quick review of a new running site I am kind of loving called Smashrun.
Lately I have been a bit of a data nerd. I love seeing random facts about my run, and looking at all of my stats on one page. And calories burned…like the few times I ran enough to eat an entire roasted chicken? Not that I would do that, or anything. You know. Just because it’s funny.
I have synced in a lot of my runs from previous years on Smashrun, although there are many runs that have not been tracked simply because I have run with different apps and platforms etc over a 7 year time span that I have been running and training for marathons. But it does give me all of my PRs in one setting and it also gives me badges and random tidbits from each run every day.
You can sync it up with your Garmin, Strava or whatever other platform that you use. You can also use it as a social site and add friends, tweet or Facebook your runs directly from there, or write your goals down there for each month or year. So it’s kind of like a runner diary of sorts.
So far I love the site although right now I’m primarily using both Garmin Connect and Strava to track my runs and for social media purposes. It’s just another site to sync your runs and compare data. There’s also a PRO option to join for a fee and then you get even more stats and random data.
If you join let me know how you like it!
Have you ever used Smashrun or any analytics type site for your running?
