UPDATED – Progress
Does anyone else have problems with the GPS tracker app on their phone/iPod/what-not? A few times I’ve been out and when I’ve got back the tracker says I’ve run a lot further and/or quicker than I actually have.
Don’t get me wrong, I’d LOVE to believe those stats but know deep down that they’re fake. FAKE!
Yesterday I ran 3 miles in 28minutes. The tracker says I ran 4 miles in 28 minutes. Further than that, it says my first mile was run at a pace of 28.7mph. After that it drops off a bit (must’ve been tired from the sprint.) I know that using the tracker isn’t essential, it still keeps an accurate time and I normally map out my run on http://www.taketothestreets.com so I know what distance I’m doing, but I like looking at the stats.
I thought that it might be the wifi on my phone interfering with the GPS, so tried yesterdays run with wifi switched off. Still messed up. I now think that it might be because I was listening to music through my phone at the same time, so tomorrow I’ll use my iPod instead of phone and see if that helps any.
