    13.1 yesterday -- hit 40 degrees here. beautiful morning.

    13.1 yesterday, not a damn thing today.

    6.7 miles this morning, wearing a t-shirt. Hope to get up to easy 8-milers by end of Feb.

    How do you measure these exact distances?

    I run a loop in my neighborhood and measured it with my car. When I start up with the long runs - outside my loop - I'll drive the route first.

    I use http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/ I'd wager serious runners are using some sort of pedometer/distance measuring device.

    Not sure how accurate the google app is, but comparing it to my car it is within .1 of a mile on my normal route.

    Today I ran 3 miles and walked another 2. I need to get back into the groove since spring is approaching.

    Seriously, I once had a job that called for one of these, so I used it to measure some laps around my neighbourhood.

    Ran 13.1 miles last Saturday, only 5 miles today. I have been using a Garmin Forerunner 305 to measure my distances.

    5.5 miles today, relaxed 1 hour pace, but the snow and ice slowed me down a bit on the trail sections.

    I also use a Garmin 305 to track distance, speed and elevation.

    How do you measure these exact distances?

    No more running miles for me the upcoming month. I'm gonna take a long rest to get rid of my knee injury. Thing is, I don't feel any pain when playing squash, but after running a mile or so a sharp pain under my knee cap appears and gets worse and worse :S..
