Another fab feature of the fitbit surge is GPS tracking. I was very good at over estimating my running distances but now with the surge it is accurate to a few metres!Screen Shot 2017-01-12 at 8.07.04 PM.png

I’ve been using the MAF heart rate method for training since September last year. After a little adjustment I am now running around 7 minute per km training pace. See above for a recent run.

And below – here is the heart rate map.Screen Shot 2017-01-12 at 8.15.49 PM.pngAs you can see mostly around my max of 127bpm apart from the start and the finish – not enough warm up and a sprint at the end just for fun! (It’s always good to be a few beats under the max rather than over)

The fitbit surge captures all this information and more and once it is synced with the phone it is available to view at your leisure.

I am in a build up phase for the Great Forest Half Marathon in early April – always a great day in the Waitarere Forest. Entered today!

So lots more slow running as I gradually build up to half marathon fitness with my fitbit surge.
