Which is it – Edmondo, Strava, RunKeeper, or Garmin Connect???

So this morning is was lashing down, there was very little wind but it was absolutely bucketing. So I cancelled my run knowing that this afternoon it was forecast to be dry. This afternoon arrived and whilst dry there where 15mph cross winds. Now I hate the wind especially cycling but if I wanted to train today it had to be this afternoon I no longer had a choice.

It was a great wee run which I enjoyed and I’m thankful and a little proud that I pushed myself out the door. Another point of motivation was the fact that I recently bought a Garmin for tracking my speed, cadence, heart etc. My mates have been using them and I’ve been impressed by how detailed it lets you get in over viewing your training. There however presents a new dilemma, which website will I use to record all the stuff. My two favourites are RunKeeper & Strava but which one will I stick with… who knows???

Changing the subject a little I bought new brake pads this morning. I decided as a hefty bloke I could use all the stopping power I can get my hands on and so I bought Swissstops. I’ll review them soon and let you know how I get on with them…
